New Trailer for Spielberg and Hank’s ‘The Pacific’

SPIELBERG-HANKSToday, HBO has released the “official’ trailer for Steven Spielberg and Tom Hank’s miniseries sequel to Band of Brothers called The Pacific. The new show, as opposed to Band of Brothers which followed paratroopers in Europe, tells the story of the Pacific Fleet’s journey through the 2nd World War.

According to HBO’s press release about the miniseries:

“Made up of 10 episodes and produced by Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman, the creative team behind the Emmy-winning 2001 HBO miniseries Band of Brothers, The Pacific tracks the intertwined odysseys of three U.S. Marines – Robert Leckie, Eugene Sledge and John Basilone – across the vast canvas of the Pacific.

The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day”

As a big fan of Band of Brothers, I can’t wait to see this. It looks great.

The Pacific premieres on HBO in early 2010. Check out the trailer after the break.

    NOT the time for yet more ad nauseum, anachronistic, WWII retreads
    —with or without stale PC after-trimmings.

    VERY VERY VERY MUCH the time to be rigorously outting and unflinshingly examining the moral et al implications of
    decades of Hollywood catering to the franchise-slum, dumb-down
    and denial needs of the most awesomely genocidal regime
    history has EVER seen —decades AFTER WWII —ACROSS
    the Pacific.

    Hollywood’s continuing its desperate search for shrinking
    moral cover in WWII moral alibis —WILL NOT wash.

    —ESP. in 2010 —on the, once again ‘mysteriously overlooked’
    60th Anniverary of the truly epic, and still REALLY unfolding
    —KOREAN WAR…

    AMEN
