With director Sam Mendes recently making some press appearances to promote his upcoming WWI film 1917, it has been revealed that the entire movie will be shot and edited to look like one continuous take. Obviously this kind of thing has been done before (and long takes in general have been quite popular as of late), but we may not have seen it applied at this scale. Mendes reunited with Skyfall cinematographer Roger Deakins to make it happen and it will be very interesting to see what they come up with. A new trailer for the movie has arrived online this week and although it isn’t a single shot trailer, it certainly hints at the immersive potential of the technique. 1917 stars George Mackay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Richard Madden and Benedict Cumberbatch and it hits theatres on Dec. 25th; check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think.
