Apple Original Films and Sony Pictures have revealed the official trailer and poster for Napoleon, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Joaquin Phoenix. You can watch the trailer below and you’ll find the poster underneath.
The historical action epic will released exclusively in theaters worldwide on Wednesday, November 22, before streaming globally on Apple TV+.
Napoleon is rated R for strong violence, some grisly images, sexual content and brief language.
Directed by Scott from a screenplay by David Scarpa, Napoleon stars Joaquin Phoenix as the French emperor and military leader.
The film is an original and personal look at Napoleon’s origins and his swift, ruthless climb to emperor, viewed through the prism of his addictive and often volatile relationship with his wife and one true love, Josephine, played by Vanessa Kirby.
The film captures Napoleon’s famous battles, relentless ambition and astounding strategic mind as an extraordinary military leader and war visionary.
An Apple Studios production in conjunction with Scott Free Productions, Napoleon is produced by Scott, Kevin Walsh, Mark Huffam and Phoenix, with Michael Pruss and Aidan Elliott serving as executive producers.
Momentum around the Apple Original Films slate continues to grow since the debut of Apple TV+ just over three years ago. In addition to Apple making history as the first streaming service to land the Academy Award for Best Picture with CODA, Apple Original Film The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse also recently earned the Academy Award for Best Animated Short.
Napoleon will premiere alongside upcoming Apple Original Films including the Tetris, which stars Taron Egerton and recently held its world premiere at SXSW; documentary STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie; and feature documentary and Sundance selection Underrated: Stephen Curry.
There’s also Ghosted, a romantic action adventure film starring Chris Evans and Ana de Armas; Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, the upcoming film starring Academy Award winners Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, as well as newcomer Lily Gladstone; and spy thriller Argylle, with Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena, Dua Lipa, Ariana DeBose and Samuel L. Jackson.
Sony Pictures’ distinct commitment to exclusive theatrical windows has driven significant box office returns, including that of hit films Spider-Man: No Way Home, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Uncharted, Where the Crawdads Sing, Bullet Train, The Woman King, and A Man Called Otto.
