Five Came Back Trailer

"Western civilization was at stake, and we're going to fight until we win." Netflix has unveiled a trailer for a new three-part documentary series titled Five Came Back. I'm breaking our rules to share this trailer, because it's a docu-series about filmmaking (and filmmakers) and specifically about WWII movies, which is one of my favorite genres. Five Came Back is executive produced by Steven Spielberg (also interviewed in the doc), Scott Rudin and Barry Diller, featuring narration by Meryl Streep. The title refers to "five" filmmakers who helped change the way the American people saw and understood World War II. Those five filmmakers were: John Ford, George Stevens, John Huston, William Wyler, and Frank Capra. The footage in this looks amazing, and I'm super excited to watch this series when it airs in March. Check this out below.

Here's the first trailer for Steven Spielberg's docu-series Five Came Back, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
