Steven Spielberg, HBO, and Tom Hanks have teamed up again to make The Pacific, a follow-up to their mini-series Band of Brothers, that focuses on, as its name suggests, the Pacific theater of operations during WWII. I have posted the first trailer below. If someone in it looks familiar, it’s probably Joseph Mazzello, who played Tim Murphy, the boy in Jurassic Park.
My hope is that this mini-series does as much justice to those men who fought the Japanese as Band of Brothers did to Easy Company, the entire 101st Airborne, and those who served in the European theater. The trailer looks like it will.
