The new 10-part mini-series "The Pacific" premieres Sunday, March 14th on HBO, from Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman, the producing team behind the Emmy Award/Golden Globe-winning 2001 HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers".

"The Pacific" tracks the intertwined real-life journeys of three Us Marines across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima, through the horror of Okinawa and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-j Day.

Filming of the $150 million budgeted series started August 2007 in Australia, wrapping May 2008. Locations included Port Douglas and Mossman, Queensland, Mowbray Valley at Drumsara, Rocky Point beaches, Central City Studios at Melbourne Docklands and the Railway Hotel, Scotch College and Mornington Railway in Melbourne. »
