Nick Jonas & Patrick Wilson Starrer ‘Midway’ Is Set To Be A Cinematic Hurricane

When it’s a film directed by Roland Emmerich, who’s known for big-budget disaster movies filled with special effects like ‘Independence Day’ and ‘Godzilla’, you know the film is about to rock you like a hurricane. Now, 20 years after he first played with the idea, the German filmmaker’s World War Two drama, ‘Midway’, is finally making its way to theaters. 

The upcoming American epic war film, directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Wes Tooke, boasts of an ensemble cast – Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Aaron Eckhart, Nick Jonas, Mandy Moore, Dennis Quaid, Darren Criss and Woody Harrelson. Midway follows the story of US Navy sailors and aviators who persevered through the Battle of Midway, a turning point in the Pacific Theater of World War II.

The Battle of Midway witnessed a clash between the U.S. Navy and the Imperial Japanese Navy and played out six months after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The U.S. Navy’s decisive victory in the air-sea battle (June 3-6, 1942) and its successful defense of the major base located at Midway Island slashed Japan’s hopes of neutralizing the United States as a naval power and effectively turned the tide of World War Two in the Pacific.
