1917 Theatrical Trailer #2
While it looks and feels like a Dunkirk rip-off, the recent news that this film will be one long continuous shot intrigues me. With Roger Deakins behind the camera, I can get behind the idea.

How would that work? It shows night and day in the trailer.

Your guess is as good as mine, but here's a link to the story:

Didn’t know it was going to be a one shot film.

For those who haven’t seen or heard of it, Victoria is also shot in one take. Absolutely mind blowing and one of my favorite films of all time.

He did the same think in the opening of Spectre. I saw one spot that had a "cut" that was hidden. Boo. Tracking shots are a bit of a gimmick, but if you're gonna do them, don't cheat.

So I'm going to fall asleep during this movie, also?

This doesn't look or feel anything like Dunkirk. It isn't even the same war.

Well unless you want your movie to be hyper-focused on a two-hour gap of time, you can't really do that.

The "night" scenes seem to be underground, bunkers, tunnels, etc.

It's not actually one take, but it was filmed to look that way

In true Mendes style, this film looks like a ripoff of Nolan (again: see Skyfall) and Saving Private Ryan. This guy is a hack. I don’t know how he won an Oscar (American Beauty wasn’t even close to being the best film that year).

But in the night part in the trailer, they're talking about something going on "tomorrow morning"

Saw it last night when I saw Joker. Even more stoked. Hopefully not underwhelming like Dunkirk.

How does a WWI trench warfare film centered around 2 characters look like a rip-off of a WWII film that has no main character and is hopping around all over the place?

Yeah, that series made me realize how brutal and miserable that war actually was, having learned very little about it in school. I may have to give it a re-listen before going to see this.

The trailer looks similar in style to Dunkirk honestly, even if the movie is about different wars

And also after watching recently “ They shall not grow Old” and hearing first hand accounts of soldiers at these miserable places.
It really sounded like hell on earth

Does not look interesting. No complex story...no real characters but the camera and horrors of war.

Looks like we just follow two soldiers like on a Disney ride but instead of happiness, they're just guides to show us the horrors of war.

We go to a barn, a plane almost kills us, we travel the fields, bombs explode, we pass through the trenches soldiers shoot at us.

I forget what they call this in film, but the story is just a setup to show a "day in the life" French New Wave, follow me, I will show you things but there's really no story.

These type of movies never interested me. You need characters and development. This is why Dunkirk was meh. I didn't care about anyone because I didn't know who they were.
