There’s a new trailer for Hurricane, the upcoming World War II drama movie starring Iwan Rheon, Milo Gibson, Stefanie Martini, Marcin Dorocinski, and Krystof Hádek:
Plot synopsis; “Hurricane (Squadron 303) is the story of a group of brave Poles who fought in the skies over England in WW2, not just to keep Great Britain free from the Nazis, but also to keep alive the very idea of their own country, which had existed in its modern form for barely twenty years before it was crushed between the opposing jaws of Germany and Russia. Equipped with the almost-obsolete Hurricane and (with some initial reluctance) given RAF blue uniforms, while they fought, Poland lived.”

We’ve got our hands on the first official trailer of Hurricane, the upcoming World War II drama movie directed by David Blair based on a script by Robert Ryan and Alastair Galbraith and starring Iwan Rheon, Milo Gibson, Stefanie Martini, Marcin Dorocinski, and Krystof Hádek:
1940, Britain is losing the war in the air.
Experience the untold true story of Squadron 303.
The men who came when called and defended Britain with their lives.
Plot synopsis: “The story of the Polish fliers who found themselves fighting for the freedom of their own country in foreign skies. Seen through the eyes of Jan Zumbach, fighter ace and adventurer, it tells how the Poles, driven across Europe by the German war machine, finally made their last stand. Flying Hurricanes for the RAF over Britain, they became a key component in the legend of ‘The Few’. Up against the might of the Luftwaffe they hoped that, by saving Great Britain from Nazi invasion, they were keeping the dream of a free Poland alive. In the lethal melee above England in that summer of 1940, they fought with a tenacity and skill that earned them the admiration of the whole British nation. The dogfights against superior planes cost some of the men their lives. The constant strain of gladiatorial combat took away the sanity of others. But, as Zumbach discovers as the war stutters to a close, becoming the best in the RAF is a hollow victory for the Poles. Hurricane shows how, even in a man’s finest hour, cynical political maneuverings can destroy his hopes, strip away his dignity and lead him to a very dark place indeed.”
