Universal has released a new trailer for Sam Mendes’ World War I drama film, 1917.
George MacKay (yes, from Amandla Stenberg’s Nazi movie) and Dean-Charles Chapman (Game of Thrones) star as two soldiers tasked with an important mission: Deliver a message through enemy territory, calling off an attack. If they don’t make it, 1,600 men will die, including one of their brothers.
If you’re thinking, “Wow, this movie looks absolutely gorgeous!” your praise should go to award-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins. His filmography includes Shawshank Redemption, Fargo, Skyfall and Blade Runner 2049.
Lots of talented people were involved in the making of this movie. That doesn’t always equal success, but it’s a very strong sign.
1917 will have a limited release on Christmas (so that it’s eligible for awards season) and then it’ll have a wide release on January 10, 2020.
