Amelia trailer flies in

The first trailer for Amelia – the Amelia Earhart biopic starring Hilary Swank – is online and you can see it below.

Looking like it wants to be considered pure Oscar bait, the biopic of the legendary female pilot – whose bold plan to fly around the world ended in her vanishing, never to be seen again – is being brought to life by Mira Nair.

Swank plays the idealistic and spirited airwoman, with Richard Gere as George Putnam, the man who loved her.

While it’s definitely got some interesting imagery, we can’t say it has us too excited yet – but take a look for yourself and let us know your thoughts…
