Following its recent selection as Germany’s official selection for the Academy Awards in the Best International Feature category, the teaser trailer for Edward Berger’s All Quiet on the Western Front, based on Erich Maria Remarque’s 1929 novel of the same name, has now descended on Youtube.
Directed by Berger, from a script he co-wrote with Lesley Paterson and Ian Stokell, the film stars Felix Kammerer (Paul Bäumer), Albrecht Schuch (Stanislaus ‘Kat’ Katczinsky), Aaron Hilmer (Albert Kropp), Moritz Klaus (Franz Müller), Edin Hasanovic (Tjaden Stackfleet), Adrian Grünewald (Ludwig Behm), with Thibault De Montalembert (General Ferdinand Foch), with Daniel Brühl (Matthias Erzberger), and Devid Striesow (General Friedrich).
All Quiet on the Western Front chronicles the gripping story of a young German soldier on the Western Front of World War I. Paul (Kammerer) and his comrades experience first-hand how the initial euphoria of war turns into desperation and fear as they fight for their lives, and each other, in the trenches.
The film is all set to World Premiere at Toronto Film Festival this 12 September before releasing in select UK cinemas on 14 October and launching globally on Netflix on 28 October. In the meantime, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned teaser trailer.
