1917 remains intimately focused on two young British soldiers who are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must infiltrate carnage-strewn enemy territory to deliver a message that might stop a deadly attack on 1,600 soldiers – a brother among them.

If you’d like to be in to win one of the 10 double movie passes, simply answer the question below correctly and you will go in the draw. We’ll announce the winners on 17 December 2019 on our website, social media and through email.

Film Overview

Academy Award®-winning director, Sam Mendes (Skyfall) brings his singular vision to the World War I epic, 1917.

Featuring an all-star cast including Academy Award®-winner Colin Firth, Academy Award®-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong (The Imitation Game) and Richard Madden (Rocketman), 1917 is a large-scale blockbuster from the same studio that brought you Saving Private Ryan.

A ground-breaking battlefield drama presented in real time and filmed as if it were one continuous shot, 1917 remains intimately focused on two young British soldiers who are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must infiltrate carnage-strewn enemy territory to deliver a message that might stop a deadly attack on 1,600 soldiers – a brother among them.

An immersive and unforgettable big screen experience, 1917 is the first cinematic masterpiece of the year.

“It was fundamentally an emotional choice. I wanted to travel every step with these men—to breathe every breath with them. It needed to be visceral and immersive. What they are asked to do is almost impossibly difficult. The way the movie is made is designed to bring you as close as possible to that experience.”

– Director Sam Mendes, Vanity Fair - September 2019
