After the excellent Skyfall and self-defeating Spectre, Sam Mendes steps away from Bond and towards epic World War One action for 1917.

First unveiled at New York Comic-Con, Universal Pictures now brings us the full trailer for this tale that is built around a single unbroken camera shot.

Two British soldiers – Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a mission to race against time, across enemy territory, to deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers including Blake’s own brother.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Richard Madden, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Daniel Mays, Adrian Scarborough, and Jamie Parker co-star.

Mendes wrote the screenplay with Krysty Wilson-Cairns.

Universal Pictures will release the film wide on January 10th, 2020.
