Has there ever been a good WWI movie? Not one that I can remember, other than maybe Sergeant York, but that came out in 1941. Movies have changed a lot since then. Like, A LOT.
Anyways, this new one titled 1917 looks downright incredible.
Directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall, Spectre, American Beauty), the story takes places at the height of World War I, as 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.
1917 hits theaters on December 25th, Christmas Day.
