Sam Mendes Returns With 1917 – See The Trailer

Sam Mendes Goes To War

They say:
“At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield, George MacKay (“Captain Fantastic”), and Blake, Dean-Charles Chapman (“Game of Thrones”) 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 is directed by Sam Mendes, who wrote the screenplay with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (“Penny Dreadful”).

Now, granted, the description sort of sounds a little like Saving Private Ryan and the trailer looks like a cross between that and Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, but, it still looks good and Mendes is a damn fine writer/director. Here’s hoping it has something different.
