Amazon has released a new trailer for The Aeronauts, an upcoming feature starring Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne. The actors previously starred in The Theory of Everything together, which led to an Academy Award nomination for Jones and an Academy Award win for Redmayne.
In the movie, which is inspired by true events, Jones plays a daredevil named Amelia who, along with a meteorologist named James (Redmayne), sets off on a hot air balloon adventure to both study the weather and fly higher than anyone else ever has before.
You can find an official synopsis for The Aeronauts and check out the new trailer below, along with a previously released trailer for anyone who missed it.
In 1862, daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) teams up with pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) to advance human knowledge of the weather and fly higher than anyone in history. While breaking records and furthering scientific discovery, their voyage to the very edge of existence helps the unlikely pair find their place in the world they have left far below them. But they face physical and emotional challenges in the thin air, as the ascent becomes a fight for survival.
The Aeronauts is coming first to theaters on December 6th, followed by its arrival on Amazon’s Prime Video on December 20th.
