Fasten your seatbelts because the flight captain, er, sorry, the film captain, Steven Spielberg has finally given us the 'go' signal to board his latest spectacle, 'Masters of the Air.' This is Spielberg and Tom Hank's third sortie into the realm of World War II dramas, following their acclaimed ventures, 'Band of Brothers' and 'The Pacific.' The latest snap shows our flight, ahem... film crew, brushed up into wartime attire, exuding vintage swag in a blend of brotherly bonding and bomber jackets. However, any signs of aerial duels or heroics? Not so far!
The show is all set to take off from Donald L. Miller's flight deck, er... book of the same name, piloted by the scripting skills of John Orloff. It guarantees a vicarious trip back to the war-era, filled with camaraderie, courage, and a touch of classy nostalgia courtesy of those ever-stylish flying jackets and aviators.
This new TV sortie features A-listers on board, including Austin Butler, Barry Keoghan, Ncuti Gatwa, Callum Turner, Anthony Boyle, Nate Mann, Josiah Cross, Branden Cook, and Rafferty Law. They have their wings set to salute the brave men of the 8th Air Force who played a significant part in taming Nazi Germany in World War II.
The upcoming series, dubbed an "emotional, action-packed historical series" throws light on the trials and tribulations of the gallant men of the 100th Bomb Group as they carried out daredevil bombing missions over Nazi Germany. Buckle in for a turbulence-free ride that tells the nail-biting tale of these young men, each one unknowingly paying a psychological and emotional price as they battled the frosty conditions, and terror at a fearsome height of 25,000 feet.
This airborne adventure through history is set to taxi to your television screens with its first two episodes slated for a January 26, 2024, debut. Subsequent episodes will be released weekly, culminating into a thrilling nine-episode drama that will explore the valour and camaraderie of these war heroes.
