The trailer for the new film 1917, set in the trenches of World War 1, takes us inside the chaos of the war and shows us what it was really like to be there.
The film is being directed by Sam Mendes, who was the man behind classics like American Beauty and Skyfall. He’s known for his stunning visuals and deep storylines. This film follows the story of two young British soldiers who are sent on a dangerous mission to foil an enemy plan that will kill hundreds of soldiers on their side.
The movie echoes the gritty and impactful style of other war epics like Saving Private Ryan and Dunkirk. It’s interesting to see Hollywood look at the First World War, as it hasn’t been depicted on the big screen that much at all. WW1 was one of the most brutal conflicts of the 20th century and infamous battles like the Battle of the Somme saw hundreds of thousands killed in just one day of fighting. This trailer promises audiences an unflinching look at the true horrors of the First World War.
