1917, the critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning action spectacle (including the Academy Award for ‘Best Cinematography’), arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on 18 May 2020 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Hailed as “one of the most stirring films of the year’’ (BBC Culture), the acclaimed film combines groundbreaking filmmaking, memorable performances, and an insight into the human experience against the shattering background of war. Additionally an Oscar-winner for ‘Best Visual Effects’ and ‘Best Sound Mixing’, 1917 is “an epic piece of filmmaking’’ (Time Out London).

In 1917, at the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (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 comes to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD with bonus content showcasing the incredible craft and artistry behind the immersive feature, including a detailed look into the production design, how the film engineered a one-shot, 360-degree format and interviews with the cast and crew.
