Watch the stunning new trailer for Sam Mendes' WWI epic 1917
A new trailer for upcoming war epic 1917, directed by Sam Mendes, has made its debut online – click below to watch it:
1917 is due to arrive in cinemas at the beginning of next year and tells the story of two young soldiers on the front line in the First World War who are given a dangerous mission: cross enemy lines to deliver a message to a battalion of 1,600 British troops who are heading straight into a German ambush.
Sunshine on Leith's George MacKay and Into the Badlands star Dean-Charles Chapman lead the film's impressive cast, which also includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Fleabag star Andrew Scott and Killing Eve's Adrian Scarborough.
The film's stunning visuals are the handiwork of revered cinematographer Roger Deakins, who has previously worked with Mendes on Skyfall and who has a dozen Oscar nominations to his name for films such as Fargo, The Shawshank Redemption and Sicario, eventually winning his first Academy Award in 2018 for his work on Blade Runner 2049.
1917 will hit American cinema screens on Christmas Day and is scheduled to arrive in UK cinemas a couple of weeks later on January 10th 2020.
