Are you planning to watch Midway anytime soon? Well, we're here to tell you that YOU SHOULD. It's equal parts action-packed, gripping, and soul-crushing. But most of all, it's important. Yup, if you've been looking for a way to educate yourself in history, then this is the perfect time to get in on the action. Okay, in case you're wondering, Midway is a war film based on the real events of The Attack on Pearl Harbor and the Battle of Midway during World War II. From the get-go, it may look like just another historical film trying to tell its own version of the textbook truth. Well, this one is different; this is a story told from the perspective of the leaders and the sailors who bravely and courageously took part in it.
The film features a star-studded cast that includes Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Aaron Eckhart, Nick Jonas, Mandy Moore, Dennis Quaid, Tadanobu Asano, and Woody Harrelson. It was directed by Roland Emmerich and was produced by Emmerich and Harald Kloser. Trust us, if this doesn't tug you at the heartstrings, we don't know what will.
Now, to those who are looking for it online, we regret to inform you that it's still not available on any platform.

Here's some surprising news bit: Did you know that Midway claimed the top spot at the box office in its opening weekend? Okay, you might be wondering why we find this astonishing. Well, to tell you the truth, it's because we didn't think it would actually beat Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of Doctor Sleep. Don't get us wrong - this Midway movie had a promising trailer, and we were sure it could hit multiple strides. But to be honest, beating a movie adaptation of a Stephen King novel wasn't one of them. Yet, here we are, celebrating the victory of Midway!
Just so you know, though, Doctor Sleep wasn't the only force to be reckoned with at the box office. Yes, aside from the horror film, Midway was also released alongside Playing with Fire and Last Christmas, which are inarguably movies you should watch, too! Well, that is if you wanna keep up with all the rage now. But that's not the only good news Midway received. Did you also know that the war film's gross earnings went far beyond its expectations? Yup, it was projected to gross around $15 million from 3,242 theaters in its opening weekend. On its first day, it was already halfway to its goal as it made a whopping $6.3 million. Could you believe that? It then went on to debut to $17.5 million, which is $2 million above it's projected gross. Tell us, wasn't that quite a feat? Now, if you're curious about why people loved it more than Doctor Sleep, then it's time to watch Midway!
