Fun Facts

  • The story was inspired by Sam Mendes’ grandfather Alfred H. Mendes who wrote a WWI autobiography. The film is dedicate to Alfred and he even appears in the end credits.

  • For some scenes, 500 background extras were required!

  • The cast spent 6 months rehearsing for their roles before filming even began.

  • The production team dug trenches especially for the film. The trenches ended up being just under a mile.

  • During the scene where George Mackay’s character runs on the battlefield, he accidentally bumped into other actors (soldiers) twice and this shot ended up in the film!
