"It is one of the films that will hit both this year's London film festival and the one in Toronto, Tom Harper's skyfaring adventure AERONAUTS which has just set flight to its first trailer. Eddie Redmayne plays famous meteorologist James Glaisher at the end of the 19th century, while Felicity Jones is Amelia Wren, his fiercely loyal copilot who harbours a penchant for science as much as she does being a showgirl. Inspired by the story of Glashier's 1862 excursion with fellow aeronaut Henry Coxwell (whom Wren replaces in the film), the movie, as EW reports, charts the pair's dangerous mission to study the earth's natural patterns from the sky as they attempt to travel higher than any human before them in a massive hot air balloon an event Wren clearly wants to publicize as a meeting of science and spectacle to generate interest in their work, while the no-nonsense Glaishier anchors his approach in curmudgeonly determination. Tom Courtenay, Vincent Perez and Anne Reid also star in the film that hits theatres December 6th ahead of the awards season and then streams on Amazon Prime December 20th."

Disappointing that they chose to replace the real pilot with a fictional character.

Weird…the photo of James Glaisher looks like Christopher Plummer, should have used him :)

Ah yes. A rebellious female who doesn't 'know her place' in society and Eddie Redmayne who seems to mumble his way through every part he plays. Pass.

Disappointing that they chose to replace the real pilot with a fictional character.

Just more of the revisionist history showing that a young beautiful women was his copilot.

When it was just another white male in real life.

Saw the trailer and it is just totally unbelievable since if what happens in the trailer they would both be quite dead.

So this is a total pass from me and even more so when they had to do some SJW of his copilot.

Thing is the flight that they depict in the movie happened in 1862 when he was 52 years of age.

Plummer is in his 80's so that wouldn't have worked.
