First still from Aeronauts (2019)
Set in 1862, THE AERONAUTS follow wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) and ambitious scientist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) as they mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. This is a journey to the very edge of existence, where the air is thin and the chances of survival are slim.
As their perilous ascent reveals their true selves, this unlikely pair discover things about each other – and themselves – that help them find their place in the world they have left behind. Harper pens the script with Jack Thorne. Director Tom Harper has previously directed War & Peace and Peaky Blinders. The Aeronauts is set to premiere November 2019.
