The first teaser trailer for director Roland Emmerich's World War II movie Midway is here, and the action scenes look absolutely epic.

The flick focuses on the legendary 1942 Battle of Midway, a historic clash between the American fleet and the Imperial Japanese Navy, which marked a significant turning point for the Americans in the Pacific during WWII. It also details the drama-filled six months leading up to the Battle of Midway following Japan’s infamous attack on Pearl Harbor.
