Sam Mendes, the visionary director behind American Beauty (1999) returns with a gripping war film '1917'. The trailer presents Colin Firth as a commanding military leader entrusting a couple of young solldiers played by Dean Charles Chaplin and George MacKay with something of a suicide mission. He needs these soldiers to personally deliver a message that could prevent a needless slaughter amidst the harrowing line of battle. We also get a look at Benedict Cumberbatch as a seemingly sadistic military leader and a potential antagonist.
1917 is Sam Mendes' return to the director's chair since Spectre (2015). This Sam Mendes heralded movie also stars Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Mark Strong, Daniel Mays, and Jamie Parker. 1917 opens on December 25, just in time for the Oscars, before getting its worldwide release on January 10, 2019.
