Earlier this year, the director said in a featurette of filming the war epic as one long take: ‘From the very beginning, I felt this movie should be told in real time.

‘Every step of the journey, breathing every breath with these men, felt integral, and there’s no better way to tell this story than with one continuous shot.’ 

Mendes enlisted Oscar-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins to shoot the film, who explained that he knew this would be a very ‘immersive’ movie. 

1917 will be released on 25th December 2019 in the US, and 10th January 2020 in the UK.
