A new Peter Jackson movie where they took WW1 footage, colored and fixed and added to the frame rate so it looks like real people and takes away that Charlie Chaplin slapstick feel to those old films.
Forensic lipreaders analysed what they were saying and they added that with matching background sounds to the footage.

I can't wait to see it and see these men brought back to life.
Don't know when it'll be released but I'm guessing somewhere around the 11th of November this year. I see first release date this weekend?

I’m very excited for this! The footage and what they’ve done with it looks unreal.

Wondering about those 1960's interviews as well. Like they mentioned we think of WW1 as this really horrible muddy meat grinder. Those soldiers thinking it was in some ways better then being at home because of the friendliness within the ranks is something I hadn't heard about.
