Fox Searchlight Pictures have released the first trailer for Mira Nair's biopic drama about legendary aviatrix Amelia Earhart.
First real look into Amelia Earhart's biopic, "Amelia", emerges for viewing pleasure through its brand new trailer. Providing an idea of how the drama movie will look like, this promotional video also presents Hilary Swank as Amelia, Richard Gere as Amelia's husband, George P. Putnam, and Ewan McGregor as Amelia's lover, Gene Vidal.
Kicked off with a shot of a muscular plane flying over a terrain, the trailer continues to expose Amelia, her dream of going to strange, faraway places, and her vision to be the first woman who flies around the world. It previews glimpses of her relationship with the two men in her life as well as the danger she faces when she lives up her dream.
Based on a script written by Ronald Bass, "Amelia" chronicles the rise to fame of this American aviation pioneer, author and women's rights advocate who disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean during an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937. It also details her rocky relationship with her husband George P. Putnam.
The biopic is directed by Mira Nair who has helmed "Vanity Fair". Beside Hilary Swank, Richard Gere and Ewan McGregor, it will also see Virginia Madsen as Putnam's first wife, Dorothy Binney, and Christopher Eccleston as Earhart's navigator, Fred Noonan. Fox Searchlight will distribute it in U.S. October 23.
