Trailer for HBO’s THE PACIFIC

You want to know why it’s HBO and not TV?  Because regular TV doesn’t need all the awards for mini-series that HBO inevitibly gets every year.  A new trailer for Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg’s upcoming mini-series “The Pacific” just hit YouTube and they might as well include a line, “We’ll take all the Emmys and Golden Globes right now and save everyone some time.”  It looks absolutely incredible and I’m guessing the only reason it’s not a theatrical release is that it’s in ten parts.

But that doesn’t seem to be the only similarity it has with Hanks and Spielberg’s previous collaboration with HBO.  I need to know what differentiates “The Pacific” from “Band of Brothers” other than the location and it’s focused on the Marines fighting instead of the Army.  I’ll have plenty of time to find out because to my shock and disappointment, we won’t even be seeing this glory until 2010.  I guess those “John Adams” Emmys are lasting HBO just fine for right now.

Check out the new trailer after the jump.
