In the first venture between Amazon Studios and Imax, The Aeronauts, directed by Tom Harper and starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, will be released exclusively in Imax theaters nationwide for a one-week run beginning October 25. The pic will then expand nationally for a full theatrical run in additional theaters on November 1.

Set in 1862, The Aeronauts follows wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and headstrong scientist James Glaisher (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 helps each of them find their place in the world they have left behind.

Pic is written Jack Thorne and directed and produced by Harper. Mandeville Films’ Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman and Harper produce, and Richard Hewitt and Thorne are executive producers.

“The Aeronauts is a spectacular movie featuring emotionally engaging performances and edge-of-your-seat action,” said Head of Amazon Studios Jennifer Salke. “We’re thrilled to join Imax in showcasing this one-of-a-kind film in such a grand format. We look forward to giving our customers an unforgettable theatrical experience high above the clouds.”

Key action sequences in The Aeronauts were designed for Imax and will feature Imax expanded aspect ratio, which means audiences will get to see up to 26% more picture than standard theaters, only in Imax.

“Today’s announcement with Amazon, which marks our first significant venture of this kind connected with a full theatrical release, is an important step in our continued effort to provide a global platform to launch diverse, premium event content every single week of the year,” said President, IMAX Entertainment, Megan Colligan. “Tom designed this movie for the IMAX screen and the result is going to blow audiences away. This film, inspired by incredible true events, offers heart-pounding intense sequences that are woven so wonderfully with the beauty, scale and emotion of these two characters go on their epic journey.”

Additional cast include Oscar nominee Tom Courtenay (45 Years), BAFTA nominee Anne Reid (The Last Tango in Halifax), BAFTA winner Rebecca Front (The Thick of It), Vincent Perez (Riviera), Tim McInnerny (Peterloo, Notting Hill), Phoebe Fox (Eye in the Sky, One Day) and Himesh Patel (Yesterday).

Creators & Stars On #MeToo Timing & Blazing A…
The online giant has released a striking first look of the two actors (who starred opposite each other in The Theory Of Everything) 2,000 feet in the air.

Tom Courtenay (45 Years), Anne Reid (The Last Tango In Halifax), Rebecca Front (The Thick of It), Vincent Perez (Riviera), Tim McInnery (Game of Thrones), Phoebe Fox (The Hollow Crown) and Himesh Patel (forthcoming Danny Boyle, Richard Curtis project) have joined the cast.

Pic is directed by BAFTA nominee Tom Harper (War & Peace) and is written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter And The Cursed Child).

Set in 1862, the film follow wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and ambitious scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne) as they mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. The chances of survival are slim.

The film is produced by Harper, with Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman for Mandeville Films (Beauty And The Beast); and executive produced by Richard Hewitt. FilmNation is handling sales.

“A top priority for us on The Aeronauts is authenticity. With that in mind, we intend to do as much balloon filming in the sky as the weather will allow. This image was taken after we launched Felicity and Eddie 2,000 feet in the air, performing their scripted scene, while a helicopter captured it all. We’re fortunate that Felicity and Eddie have the nerve to do these stunts themselves as it authenticates our entire approach,” said Lieberman.

Director of Photography is George Steel (Peaky Blinders), with costumes by Alexandra Byrne (Elizabeth: The Golden Age) and hair and make-up by Jenny Shircore (Beauty And The Beast). Production designers are David Hindle (The Theory of Everything) and Christian Huband (Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them). Louis Morin (Arrival) is the VFX Supervisor.
