Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones (last appearing together in THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING which earned Redmayne an Oscar) are teaming up again for Amazon Studio's THE AERONAUTS. According to the synopsis of the film, "In 1862, daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Wren (Jones) teams up with pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Redmayne) to advance human knowledge of the weather and fly higher than anyone in history. While breaking records and advancing scientific discovery, their voyage to the very edge of existence helps the unlikely pair find their place in the world they have left far below them. But they face physical and emotional challenges in the thin air, as the ascent becomes a fight for survival."

The fascinating adventure tale is directed by Tom Harper and was penned by Jack Thorne. Amazon Studios plans to release THE AERONAUTS in theaters on 12/6 and on Prime Video on 12/20.
