The first trailer for Sam Mendes’ 1917 film has finally landed, giving fans a look at the forthcoming World War 1 epic.

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, played by George MacKay (Schofield) and Dean-Charles Chapman (Blake), are tasked with crossing into enemy territory to deliver a message that will likely stop the slaughter of hundreds of soldiers; one of them being Blake’s brother. 1917 will also star Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Richard Madden, Andrew Scott, Mark Strong, Teresa Mahoney, Daniel Mays, Adrian Scarborough, Justin Edwards, Gerran Howell, Anson Boon, and Richard McCabe. Check out the tense trailer above.

Oscar-winning director Mendes is best known for directing Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty.

1917 lands in stateside theaters December 25, followed by a worldwide release on January 10, 2020.
