Peter Jackson’s WWI Documentary 'They Shall Not Grow Old' Expanding to 500 Theaters

Peter Jackson’s WWI Documentary 'They Shall Not Grow Old' Expanding to 500 Theaters

Peter Jackson’s ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ is coming back to theaters in a big way. The breakout documentary will be screened at 500 theaters beginning February 1.

The documentary originally screened in select theaters late last year as part of a special Fathom Events presentation. It proceeded to become the highest grossing release in the company’s history, making over $8 million. That was more than convincing enough to give the film a full run in over 150 markets nationwide in order to capitalize on the fervent interest in the film, which utilizes cutting edge tech to restore life to century-old war footage.

Jackson worked on the film as a side project while directing the Hobbit franchise and later producing ‘Mortal Engines.’ It utilizes cutting edge technology in the realms of 3D, colorization, and audio recreation, resulting in a film that transports audiences directly into the hellish trenches of World War I.

And if that isn’t enough to pique your interest, check out the newly-released trailer below:

Produced and Directed by Peter Jackson: The acclaimed documentary is an extraordinary look at the soldiers and events of the Great War, using film footage captured at the time, now presented as the world has never seen.
