New footage has dropped for director Sam Mendes’ incoming WWI film 1917.

As if the combination of Oscar-winning talents Sam Mendes and cinematographer Roger Deakins combining to make a World War I movie wasn’t enough, a featurette for the upcoming 1917 has been released, revealing that the film will play out in real time and occur in a ‘single’ shot.

In the same way that 2014’s Birdman used clever stitching techniques to create the illusion of one single unending shot, 1917 will presumably use the same techniques. Nonetheless, the featurette gives a glimpse of just how technically challenging an approach like this is.

1917 promises to be an intense experience when it releases in December. Expect more as we have it.
