Watch the Final Trailer for 1917, Opening on Christmas Day

In addition to the IMAX poster, Universal Pictures has brought online the final trailer for 1917, which will open in limited theaters on Christmas Day and will expand wide on January 10. Tickets are now available for pre-ordering at Fandango.

Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of Skyfall, SPECTRE and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his World War I epic, 1917. 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).
