“We want you to take this training very seriously,” utters Bruce Willis’ character in The Bombing (A.K.A. Air Strike) trailer, which has just graced the Internet. The film will arrive on DVD and Digital on 29th October, and also stars Adrien Brody. It is set World War II and focusses upon five Chinese people who fight their way through Japanese air attacks to protect a military machine.
The Bombing is known as Air Strike in other territories, but the UK market will get the different title when it releases at the end of the month on the home formats. According to some sources, it is the 10th-most expensive non-English-language film by production cost. The film’s Wikipedia page states that it cost a staggering $65 million to make.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Thrilling airborne dogfights set the sky on fire in an epic untold tale from WWII…
Inspired by the heroic, untold true story of Chongqing, The Bombing stars screen legends Bruce Willis (Die Hard, The Expendables) and Adrien Brody (The Pianist) in an incredible tale of honor and immense bravery.
This pulse-pounding war epic centres around the courage of China’s citizens during WWII. As U.S. Air Force commander Jack Johnson (Willis) trains the Chinese aviators to battle Japanese fighters, a hot-headed pilot begs to fly a powerful bomber that could stop the attacks. Meanwhile, a team of spies and refugees must carry a game-changing decoder device through the war-torn countryside. The Bombing portrays this historic conflict in a thrilling new light.
