See More in the Exclusive 1917 IMAX Poster

-

Today, we’re getting a first look at the 1917 IMAX poster, which promises you’ll get to see up to 26% more picture in the large-format theaters. In addition to the 1917 IMAX poster, you can also watch an extended featurette on the Sam Mendes-directed film here. Opening in limited theaters on December 25th, the Universal Pictures release will arrive in IMAX theaters on January 24, 2020.

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (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.

The film also stars Mark Strong (The Imitation Game, Zero Dark Thirty), Andrew Scott (Spectre, Sherlock), Richard Madden (BBC’s Bodyguard, Cinderella), Daniel Mays (Fisherman’s Friends, Rogue One), Adrian Scarborough (The Madness of King George, Christopher Robin), Jamie Parker (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Nabhaan Rizwan (Informer), Claire Duburcq, with Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, the Bridget Jones franchise), and Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Doctor Strange).

REVIEW: Sam Mendes’ 1917 Takes the Breath Away

Mendes, who directed and wrote the screenplay with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Penny Dreadful), produces the film with Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Away We Go) — his partner at Neal Street Productions — along with Jayne-Ann Tenggren (Spectre, upcoming The Rhythm Section) and Callum McDougall (Mary Poppins Returns, Skyfall). Co-producing is Michael Lerman.

The film is produced by Neal Street Productions for DreamWorks Pictures and Universal Pictures. Universal and Amblin Partners will distribute the film internationally, with eOne distributing on behalf of Amblin in the U.K.
