New 1917 Trailer Teases Sam Mendes’ One-Shot War Epic

“If we’re not clever about this, no one will get to your brother!” 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.

In addition to the new trailer, you can check out a behind the scenes featurette with director Sam Mendes and acclaimed cinematographer Roger Deakins explaining how they designed the battlefield drama to appear as one continuous take.

1917 is released in Irish cinemas on January 10, 2020
