The Pacific trailer

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg did a hell of a job looking at the European theater of WWII with their epic HBO "Band of Brothers" series, and now they're heading to the water for "The Pacific".

While we obviously won't be seeing the 101st Airborne this time, the  upcoming 10-part miniseries (described as a "spiritual sequel") follows a group of Marines during America's battle with the Japanese. Expect a lot of action involving planes, ships, islands, flamethrowers and swords, from directors like David Nutter ("The X-Files") and Tim Van Patten ("The Sopranos"). All under the watchful eye of Capt. Dale Dye, of course.

Extra Tidbit: While "Band of Brothers" was filmed in the UK (a lot of American soldiers were played by British actors), "The Pacific" was mostly filmed in Australia.

Yes, The Pacific. Yes.

Holy shit! This thing is going to knock people's socks off. And other undergarments along with them.

I just got goosebumps watching that trailer. I've been waiting so long for the follow-up to Band Of Brothers. I'm so excited.

I'm surprised no one mentioned that the boy from Jurassic Park is playing one of the lead soldiers. He looks pretty good in this. Maybe he will start popping up more in movies.

I formally approve of this. Finally something of the pacific. The Thin Red Line and that The WindTalker failed at representing this theater. Hopefully(and it will) this will be the one to show us a modern telling of this part of the war.
