Gents, could we be witnessing the creation of a war movie abomination that is--somehow--WORSE than "Pearl Harbor"?

Trailer appears easier to follow than Dunkirk...

Actually I am very impressed that the CGI is used to recreate (with some performance license) planes that no longer exist. Let’s let it play and see.

Don’t forget the ‘overlord’ movie trailer as well. Google that one too. I knew the D-Day invasion had many interesting stories but I don’t recall this one. Always learning more about history everyday
