Trailer: Peter Jackson’s “They Shall Not Grow Old”

Trailer Peter Jacksons They Shall Not Grow Old

The trailer has been released for “They Shall Not Grow Old,” Peter Jackson’s World War I documentary which features some superbly restored century-old film footage shot during The Great War.

Jackson and his team took black and white footage from the BBC and Imperial War Museums’ archives, cleaned up the prints and digitally colorised it – the result showing details that have never been seen before.

The clip shows comparisons of the original and restored footage as well. Jackson uses the voices of the men involved in the film which shows the grim realities of war on the front line as well as the soldier’s attitudes towards the conflict.

“They Shall Not Grow Old” is set to premiere on October 16th in the U.K. with a special Q&A with Jackson and then opens to European theaters.
