The World Wars represent times in human history that portrayed humanity at its worst. Stories of terror from those wars continue to be told to this day. However, within the horrors of the war, there existed subplots of glory and bravery in dire times. 1917 is a film about the actions of two brave men that helped end World War 1.
Sam Mendes wrote the film based on stories told to him by his paternal grandfather. 1917 tells the tale of two men sent to deliver a message that could save the lives of a British battalion of 1600 men. The film has received very high ratings from critics and fans. Read on to find out where you can stream it.
Is 1917 streaming on Netflix?
1917 has been made available in various countries in Eastern Europe on various dates starting November 2020. At the time of writing, 1917 is available on Netflix in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, and Ukraine. We, therefore, expect the film to appear in other Netflix regions in the near future.
Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that 1917 will be available for streaming on Netflix in the United States.
1917 is distributed by Universal Pictures which is owned by NBCUniversal. NBCUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock, is a direct rival of Netflix, and so, it’s highly unlikely that Universal Pictures will hand streaming rights to Netflix.
