Sam Mendes’ ‘1917’ Gets A New Featurette ‘One Continuous Shot’


One of the big films on our radar this year is Sam Mendes’ next one, 1917, a WWI epic shot by the legendary Roger Deakins. A new featurette has just been released by eOne for the new movie, which will be on our screens next year.

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ 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 is directed by Sam Mendes, who wrote the screenplay with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Showtime’s Penny Dreadful). The film is produced by Mendes and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Away We Go) for their Neal Street Productions, Jayne-Ann Tenggren (associate producer, Spectre), Callum McDougall (executive producer, Mary Poppins Returns, Skyfall) and Brian Oliver (Rocketman, Black Swan).

eOne will release 1917 in cinemas on January 10, 2020. Check out the new featurette, titled ‘One Continuous Shot’ below.
