‘Empire of Light’ Trailer: Director Sam Mendes Returns with a Powerful New Film

Searchlight Pictures has released an official teaser trailer for Empire of Light. The upcoming romantic drama film is director Sam Mendes‘ first feature-length film since the Academy Award-winning 1917 in 2019. Let’s take a look.

Mendes will always have my money, especially if it’s an ’80s-set film. I’m looking forward to this one.

Empire of Light stars Olivia Colman, Micheal Ward, Tom Brooke, Tanya Moodie, Hannah Onslow, Crystal Clarke, Toby Jones, and Colin Firth.

Plot Synopsis:

Set in an English seaside town in the early 1980s, Empire of Light is a powerful and poignant story about human connection and the magic of cinema, from Academy Award®-winning director Sam Mendes.

Empire of Light opens in theaters on December 9, 2022.
