Here's a first look at the trailer for 'Amelia,' the Fox Searchlight movie based on the life of Amelia Earhart, who disappeared in 1937 while trying to fly around the world.

Hilary Swank chopped her hair and thinned her eyebrows to play the legendary aviatrix, Richard Gere plays her husband, George Putnam, and Ewan McGregor her lover, Gene Vidal (father of Gore Vidal).

'Amelia' is directed by Mira Nair, who directed 'The Namesake,' and opens October 23.
