All Quiet on the Western Front teaser paints a haunting portrait of World War I

All Quiet on the Western Front will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, but Netflix has finally released the first teaser trailer for the World War I drama.

Based on the world renowned bestselling novel by Erich Maria Remarque, All Quiet on the Western Front tells the “gripping story of a young German soldier on the Western Front of World War I. Paul 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.” Beautiful, haunting, and horrifying, the teaser trailer for this latest incarnation of All Quiet on the Western Front looks mighty impressive. The first adaptation of Remarque’s novel hit theaters in 1930 and went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The story was also adapted into a TV movie starring Richard Thomas, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasence, and Ian Holm in 1979.

All Quiet on the Western Front was directed by Edward Berger, who also co-wrote the script with Lesley Paterson and Ian Stokell. The film stars Felix Kammerer, Albrecht Schuch, Aaron Hilmer, Moritz Klaus, Edin Hasanovic, Adrian Grünewald, Thibault De Montalembert, Devid Striesow, and Daniel Brühl. It will also be Germany’s official submission for the 2023 Academy Awards in the Best International Feature Film category. Following its debut at TIFF, All Quiet on the Western Front will play at the Paris Theater in New York on October 7th. It will then play in select theaters on October 14th before landing on Netflix on October 28th.
