The epic World War One movie 1917 has been given the Lego treatment in a new tribute trailer.

Among the painstakingly-recreated poignant moments that fans of the movie will recognize are when the two young British soldiers are given their mission to cross no man’s land to deliver a life-saving message to a British colonel.
They also remade the scene where a rat triggers a near fatal explosion in an abandoned German trench and when they encounter a woman and her baby.
As with the original trailer, the Lego tribute ends with the dramatic scene of one of the soldiers running through a field, towards the camera, as others charge in another direction, while artillery fire goes off all around them.
