Known for being the filmmaker behind blockbuster hits Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, Roland Emmerich now looks to WWII for inspiration on his latest film, MIDWAY.

The film will center around the 1942 Battle of Midway, a clash between the American fleet and the Imperial Japanese Navy, which marked a significant turning point for the Americans in the Pacific Theater during World War II. It will also chronicle the dramatic six months that led up to the event following Japan’s infamous attack on Pearl Harbor. Based on true events, MIDWAY will also spotlight the heroic stories of leaders and soldiers who fought to overcome the odds. In the new trailer shared by Lionsgate, viewers can get a better look at what’s to come from Emmerich’s World War II set piece.

MIDWAY stars Patrick Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Mandy Moore, Luke Evans, and a very mustachioed Nick Jonas. Look for MIDWAY to land in theaters November 8.
