From visionary blockbuster director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Patriot), comes the visually spectacular WWII film Midway, scheduled for release in UK cinemas on 8th November 2019.
Midway is the epic, real-life saga about an undermanned American fleet and the brave Navy leaders and pilots who triumphed, against the odds, over a powerful adversary. With democracy and freedom at stake, these U.S. brothers-in-arms conquered the Imperial Japanese Navy at the Battle of Midway, a most stunning clash by air and sea which marked a heroic feat of naval warfare and pivoted the Allies toward victory in the Pacific Theater during WWII.
The film’s all-star cast includes Ed Skrein (Deadpool, Alita: Battle Angel), Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring Universe, Aquaman), Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast, Fast & Furious 6), Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Thank You For Smoking), Nick Jonas (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Chaos Walking), Etsushi Toyokawa (Love Letter, The 8-Tomb Village), Tadanobu Asano (Thor, Battleship), Luke Kleintank (The Man in the High Castle, The Goldfinch), Jun Kunimura (Kill Bill: Vol. 1, The Wailing), Darren Criss (Glee, American Crime Story), Keean Johnson (Alita: Battle Angel, Nashville), Alexander Ludwig (Vikings, The Hunger Games), with Mandy Moore (This Is Us, Tangled), Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow, Far From Heaven) and Woody Harrelson (True Detective, The Hunger Games).
Directed by Roland Emmerich, written by Wes Tooke (Colony) and produced by Harald Kloser (2012, White House Down), Midway will be released in cinemas across the UK on 8 November 2019 by Lionsgate UK.
