1917 2019 (Dec 25)

This looks exceptional to me.

Directed by Sam Mendes – who made the last two James Bond adventures, Skyfall and Spectre – the film is set during the First World War.

The official synopsis reads: “At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission.

“In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.”

The all-star cast of 1917 includes Colin Firth (Pride & Prejudice), Richard Madden (Bodyguard), Mark Strong (Shazam!), Daniel Mays (Line of Duty), Adrian Scarborough (Christopher Robin), Nabhaan Rizwan (Informer), Dean-Charles Chapman (Game of Thrones), Jamie Parker (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).

It’ll also reunite Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Scott!

Watch the new trailer:

Director Sam Mendes recently announced that the whole movie will be told in one continuous shot.

Explaining the challenging creative decision, he revealed: “I wanted people to understand how difficult it was for these men.”

1917 is set for release in the US on 25th December and in the UK on 10th January.
