New Trailer of Tom Hanks' Miniseries 'The Pacific'

January 21, 2010 (3:30 am) GMT
While the previously-released trailers focus on the drama, this one shows the appalling condition in the actual war field and the adrenalin-pumping experience of battlefield.

HBO released two promos for 10-part miniseries "" which comes from the producers of "Band of Brothers". One is pure trailer that highlights on the war scene from underwater view and the other is an on-set featurette that has the producers, writers and directors explaining the essence of the epic drama.

Steven Spielberg said it is not only the story of human corruption and a private war but also the story of soldiers fighting the element of natural environment. "We have three main characters, two of which wrote books about the experience. Eugene Sledge and Robert Leckie and a man by the name of John Basilone," producer said.

The series is told in a documentary style starring as Eugene, as Robert and as John. The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain forests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day. It will be premiered on March 14.
