Apple TV+ has dropped the trailer for their star-studded 9-part series event Masters of the Air, which tells the story of the 100th Bomb Group, a group of airmen in World War II who forge a brotherhood built on courage, loss, and triumph.
Produced by Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman (Band of Brothers and The Pacific), Masters of the Air features Academy Award nominee Austin Butler (The Bikeriders), Callum Turner (Emma), Anthony Boyle (Tolkien) and Nate Mann (Licorice Pizza), who are joined by Raff Law (Twist), Academy Award nominee Barry Keoghan (Saltburn), Josiah Cross (King Richard), Branden Cook (Tell Me Lies) and Ncuti Gatwa (Sex Education). Check out the trailer below…
Based on Donald L. Miller’s book of the same name, and scripted by John Orloff, “Masters of the Air” follows the men of the 100th Bomb Group (the “Bloody Hundredth”) as they conduct perilous bombing raids over Nazi Germany and grapple with the frigid conditions, lack of oxygen, and sheer terror of combat conducted at 25,000 feet in the air. Portraying the psychological and emotional price paid by these young men as they helped destroy the horror of Hitler’s Third Reich, is at the heart of “Masters of the Air.” Some were shot down and captured; some were wounded or killed. And some were lucky enough to make it home. Regardless of individual fate, a toll was exacted on them all.
Masters of the Air premieres January 26 on Apple TV+.
