The Aeronauts: discover the reactions from the Cineworld Unlimited screenings

The Aeronauts is on release now in Cineworld cinemas, and the sweeping balloon adventure sent spirits soaring during our recent Cineworld Unlimited screening.

Lucky Unlimited members got a choice of IMAX or standard widescreen previews. Eddie Redmayne stars as James Glaisher, a meteorologist who takes to the skies with balloonist Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) to record the weather. Along the way, they encounter stunning vistas, penetrating cold and terrifying storms – all in pursuit of scientific knowledge.

We've rounded up a few of the reactions from the Unlimited crowd, starting with this from Decksteria.

The Fourth Dimension lauds the performances from Redmayne and Jones.

Anthony Parkes says he enjoyed the immersive qualities of the drama.

Kyle Snape says that although the story is lacking, the dynamic IMAX presentation makes up for it.

Katie Webber says the IMAX visuals and sound work brilliantly in reinforcing the danger of the characters' journey.

Msrc France says it's another winning collaboration between the two actors following The Theory of Everything.

However, Woody Woods says he had a problem with the suspension (no pun intended) of disbelief.

And Andy W says the movie struggles with its relation to fact (Glaisher was real but Wren is a make-believe character).

Didn't get to see the movie this weekend? Good news: it's now on general release in Cineworld in widescreen, IMAX and 4DX.
