Napoleon: New Behind-The-Scenes Featurette Plus A New Poster

A new behind-the-scenes look from Napoleon has director Sir Ridley Scott breaking down the brutal strategy behind the Battle of Austerlitz. Plus, a new poster.

Article Summary

  • New behind-the-scenes clip from Napoleon showcases Austerlitz battle.
  • Sir Ridley Scott explains the intense strategy in new featurette.
  • Dolby unveils a striking new poster for the upcoming film.
  • Napoleon, with Joaquin Phoenix, hits theaters November 22, 2023.

A few days ago, Sony Pictures and Apple shared a scene from Napoleon, and it was the scene they used to introduce us to the movie during the Sony presentation at CinemaCon back in April. It's the Battle of Austerlitz, and it spotlights Napoleon's brutal strategy against the Russians. The clip is pretty freaking amazing, as you would expect nothing less from a battle scene, and Sir Ridley Scott and Scott has also released a short behind-the-scenes look at the battle as well. While the battle is well shot, and you can more or less tell what is going on, it is a little chaotic and a battle, but Scott takes the time to walk you through exactly what the step-by-step plan was that eventually led to Napoleon pushing his enemies out onto the ice. We also got a new poster, this time from Dolby.
