Time Isn’t On Their Side
Sam Mendes, the Oscar®-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his vision to his World War I epic, 1917. Here’s three posters…
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).
IMAX tickets are now exclusively available for Sam Mendes’ upcoming World War I epic, 1917, opening in IMAX cinemas beginning January 10, 2020. Specially formatted for IMAX cinemas, 1917 will feature an expanded aspect ratio for the entire film, which means IMAX delivers audiences more picture than any other cinema. To experience the film in a venue worthy of the extraordinary filmmaking – in IMAX – advance tickets are available here.
In addition to featuring IMAX expanded aspect ratio, the IMAX release of 1917 will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience®. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
