Two young British privates during the First World War are given an impossible mission: deliver a message deep in enemy territory that will stop 1,600 men, and one of the soldier's brothers, from walking straight into a deadly trap.
Even though 1917 is already out in some countries, it will be available everywhere in January 2020. Based on the reviews and trailer, this looks like it will be another WWI epic.

Based on the real life Nazi program KG 200, Wolf Hound chronicles the story of a Jewish-American pilot shot down behind enemy lines. With little more than his wits and a sidearm, he must outsmart a brilliant enemy, rescue his captured crew, and foil a plot that could change the course of the war.
Director Michael B. Chait has already directed the short film B-52: Three Generations, so his passion for aviation history and filmmaking is abundantly clear. Wolf Hound definitely has potential to be a fast-paced and exciting story.
