A new trailer has hit for Independence Day director Roland Emmerich’s upcoming World War II movie, Midway.

Based on real-life events, the story centres around the Battle of Midway, a clash between the American fleet and the Imperial Japanese Navy that marked a turning point during WWII. This is the story of the leaders and soldiers who gave everything that they had to overcome incredible odds.

If you’re getting Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor vibes, so are we. But hey, Emmerich is very good at explosions!

Starring Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Aaron Eckhart, Nick Jonas, Etsushi Toyokawa, Tadanobu Asano, Luke Kleintank, Jun Kunimura, Darren Criss, Keean Johnson, Alexander Ludwig, Mandy Moore, Dennis Quaid and Woody Harrelson, Midway is due to hit Australian cinemas from November 28.
