    Can't wait to see it. Still a while to wait though, July 21. Plan to see it at the local IMAX theater.

    Very much so. Seems it won't be given the typical "Hollywood" treatment, which is a very good thing. We don't need another Red Tails type film thank you very much.

    Or another Pearl Harbor film! The latest movie trailer sure does look good...but I had the same thoughts about the Pearl Harbor trailer too!

    They haven't made a movie about Pearl Harbor since "Tora, Tora, Tora".

    Just me but I prefer the original newsreels and reports. Do not see the need for modern day takes on history.

    The subject matter alone means this is more focused on a Brit audience, so that alone probably means that the film won't be too "Hollywood" and has a better chance of being decent.
