Band of Brothers 2.0: The Pacific

In television on 06/24/2009 at 10:45 am

The followup to Band of Brothers is The Pacific. Here’s the new trailer for the miniseries, made, as with Band of Brothers, by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks for HBO.

Having just spent D-Day watching a day-long marathon of the 2001 miniseries Band of Brothers, which follows Easy Company of the 101st Airborne division from ocean crossing to the U.K., training and D-Day through to the liberation of the camps, I am so looking forward to this. Big boots to fill, of course.

This mini follows Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda) from Guadalcanal to Iwo Jima through to V-Jay day. No start date yet announced, by the trailer notes 2010.

Here’s the trailer, with nods to James Hibberd at The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed, via digg.
