A new war drama is coming. As you can easily guess from the title, he takes World War I on the wallpaper. Interestingly, the film will present the story in real time. What does it mean? Story 1917 takes place over two hours one spring day. The Germans had just withdrawn to the Hindenburg line and for several hours the British were doomed to very limited information about their location. Two young soldiers are sent to save the lives of 1,600 men to be sent to attack the Hindenberg line. The whole was created in such a way as to imitate the effect of one two-hour shot. It all sounds quite unusual and therefore very interesting.
1917 will appear in theaters on January 24
1917 was directed mainly by Sam Mendes (American Beauty. Skyfall). Krysty Wilson-Cairns collaborated with him (Horror House). Of course, well-known faces will appear in the film. Starring George MacKay (The secret of Marrowbone. Capitan Fanastic), Dean-Charles Chapman (Game of Thrones. Before I fall asleep), Richard Madden (Game of Thrones. The Bodyguard), Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock. Dr. Strange), Colin Firth (How to become a king. Diary of Bridget Jones), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes. In a network of lies) and Andrew Scott (Sherlock. Specter). I must admit that the whole team looks quite impressive. With such talented people it is much easier to make a good movie.
Legions – review. Poor scenario drowned out by very good special effects
Sam Mendes approached the project not only seriously, but also very boldly. Just trying to take a picture in real time is brave. Of course, the whole thing was not filmed at once, it is obvious that in everything he was assisted by operators and fitters. It is from the combination of their skills that the perfect illusion should come out, in which we will follow each step and breath of the heroes during their suicidal mission. Mendes also admitted that to create such a production he was inspired by his grandfather's war stories, which he remembers from his childhood. The director is already very happy with his work and can't wait for a wider audience to see them.
What are the best war movies in the history of cinema?
War movies are often made with panache and can attract crowds. Because in Poland we "specialize" in productions about the Second World War, and Americans like to war movies strongly colorize, it will be nice to see a different view on military subjects. A realistic picture taken alive from this less interesting filmmakers of the conflict? I don't know about you, but I can't wait.
