TIME IS THE ENEMY: See Up to 26% More Picture of Sam Mendes’ Upcoming World War I Epic 1917 in IMAX This January

02 January 2020

IMAX has revealed its exclusive artwork for Sam Mendes’ upcoming World War I epic, 1917, which will be showing in IMAX cinemas from 10 January 2020.

Specially formatted for IMAX cinemas, 1917 will feature an expanded aspect ratio for the entire film, which means IMAX delivers audiences up to 26% more picture than any other cinema. To experience the film in a venue worthy of the extraordinary filmmaking – in IMAXadvance tickets are available here.

In addition to featuring IMAX expanded aspect ratio (26% more picture on screen), the IMAX release of 1917 will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

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 Academy Award®-winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall,) who wrote the screenplay with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Showtime’s Penny Dreadful.) The film is produced by Mendes and Pippa Harris (co-executive producer, Revolutionary Road; executive producer, Away We Go) for their Neal Street Productions, Jayne-Ann Tenggren (co-producer, The Rhythm Section; associate producer, Spectre), Callum McDougall (executive producer, Mary Poppins Returns, Skyfall) and Brian Oliver (executive producer, Rocketman; Black Swan). The film is produced by Neal Street Productions for DreamWorks Pictures in association with New Republic Pictures. The film will be released by eOne in UK and Irish cinemas on 10 January 2020.
