The hottest new trend in movies is World War I, baby! World War II? Get the hell outta here! We’re going back to the days of trench warfare, Mustard Gas, and Archduke Franz Ferdinand. After 1917 nabbed plenty of praise and Oscar nominations, it was only a matter of time before a producer said, “Hey, the kids these days seem to love that World War I. Let’s give it a go.” The result: A new adaptation of All Quiet on the Western Front, based on Erich Maria Remarque’s classic anti-war novel. Edward Berger is set to direct, while Daniel Brühl will star.
