the king's man new york comic-con 2019

Sam Mendes‘ World War I film 1917 is the latest piece of entertainment to rely on this trick, tellings its entire story in one continuous shot. Of course, the movie wasn’t really shot that way, since that’s virtually impossible. But Mendes, cinematographer Roger Deakins, and more have banded together to make the film seem like it’s unfolding in one very long take. A new 1917 featurette highlights the technique.
