The sky is no limit
Would you dare to venture to the outer reaches of the atmosphere with just a balloon, some gas and a wicker basket beneath?
Join Amelia Wren and James Glaisher as they embark on mankind’s highest-ever balloon voyage in the interest of studying the weather. But they have to stop bickering first.
Based on a composite of adventurers and the stories of their exploits, The Aeronauts seeks to understand people who push themselves beyond the limits to make new discoveries and redefine the boundaries of what is possible. If you are squeamish about heights, prepare to watch this from behind your fingers!
Starring Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Himesh Patel, Anne Reid and Tom Courtenay, it’s looking like a star-studded red-carpet affair.
