Director Roland Emmerich (INDEPENDENCE DAY, THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW) is channeling his specific brand of explosive action into a World War II period film. So, in addition to several spectacular set-pieces, heroic feats, and general badassery, MIDWAY will feature an ensemble cast including Patrick Wilson (THE CONJURING), Woody Harrelson (ZOMBIELAND), and Mandy Moore (THIS IS US). Oh, and Nick Jonas’ mustache, which also features Nick Jonas (mustache).
MIDWAY centers on the Battle of Midway, a clash between the American fleet and the Imperial Japanese Navy which marked a pivotal turning point in the Pacific theater during World War II. The film tells the true story of the leaders and soldiers who used their instincts, fortitude, and bravery to overcome the odds.
