There’s a severe lack of WWII pilot films these days. We had a pretty big one with Dunkirk and Tom Hardy’s amazing performance in that movie. But what about a big-ass bomber? Well, Shadow In The Cloud is here to give you that fix. The film, starring Chloë Grace Moretz as Captain Maude Garrett, places us squarely in the midst of World War II. She joins a crew of an all-male B-17 bomber with a mission.
The official synopsis describes the film very well.
In the throes of World War II, Captain Maude Garrett joins the all-male crew of a B-17 bomber with a top-secret package. Caught off guard by the presence of a woman on a military flight, the crew tests Maude’s every move. Just as her quick wit is winning them over, strange happenings and holes in her backstory incite paranoia surrounding her true mission. But this crew has more to fear…lurking in the shadows, something sinister is tearing at the heart of the plane. Trapped between an oncoming air ambush and an evil lurking within, Maude must push beyond her limits to save the hapless crew and protect her mysterious cargo.
Max Landis and Roseanne Liang wrote the screenplay, and Liang directed the film. Moretz is joined by Nick Robinson, Beulah Koale, Taylor John Smith, Callan Mulvey, Benedict Wall, Joe Witkowski, and Byron Coll in the film.
Shadow In The Cloud releases in theaters, VOD, and digital on January 1st, 2021.
