Synopsis:

From the producer of Independence Day and The Patriot and starring James Franco (Spider-Man 3), Flyboys soars to new cinematic heights with spectacular special effects and thrilling, edge-of-your-seat aerial dogfights. Inspired by the true story of the legendary Lafayette Escadrille, this action-packed, epic tells the tale of America's first fighter pilots. These courageous young men distinguish themselves in a manner that none before them had dared, becoming true heroes who experience triumph, tragedy, love, and loss amid the chaos of World War I.

Bringing the real life story of the daring aerial dogfights of World War I to screen, Flyboyscelebrates the amazing story of ordinary American boys who volunteered for service looking for adventure... and became heroes along the way. Taking flight on DVD January 30, 2007 from MGM Home Entertainment, Flyboys is a soaring story of courage and selfless valor, set against a cloudless backdrop of high-flying action. Inspired by the true story of the legendary Lafayette Escadrille, the film is directed by Academy Award®-winner Tony Bill (Best Picture, The Sting, 1974) and stars a who's who of today's most versatile young actors, including James Franco (Spider-Man 3), Martin Henderson (The Ring), as well as the venerable international cinema veteran, Jean Reno (The Da Vinci Code).

In 1917, prior to the official entry into the war by the United States, the Allied powers of France, England and Italy were on the ropes against the German juggernaut. Craving thrills and seeking purpose, a small group of Americans came overseas to do their part, taking the war effort into an audacious new theater of conflict high above the conventional battlefield. Available in both widescreen and full screen format, the Flyboys single-disc DVD features audio commentary from director Tony Bill and producer Dean Devlin (Independence Day).

Also available is the Flyboys 2-Disc Special Editionn which includes 15 minutes of deleted scenes, documentaries on real life airmen and the film's dazzling special effects and The Diary Of A Miniature Stunt Pilot featurette (a spoof on one of the film's "stuntmen") and an exciting special birds-eye view featurette of the Flyboys cast flying with the famous Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels. The Blu-Ray edition, MGM's first dual-layer 50GB, includes additional featurettes about the making of and historical significance of the film and The Flyboys Aerial Guide trivia track.
