Mark your calendars, folks. This looks to be one of the streaming and cinema events of 2022.

All Quiet on the Western Front (Im Westen nichts Neues), a Netflix Film, premieres globally on Friday, October 28, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)

The film will be released on Thursday, September 29, in select theaters in Germany, and in October (dates tba) in select markets worldwide.

All Quiet on the Western Front is a wartime drama that tells the poignant story of Paul, a young German soldier on the Western Front during World War I, who, along with his comrades, experiences first-hand how the initial war euphoria turns into horror, suffering, and fear while they desperately fight for their lives in the trenches. The film is based on the world-famous anti-war novel All Quiet on the Western Front written by Erich Maria Remarque, himself a German veteran of World War I.

The cast includes Felix Kammerer (David im Wunderland), Albrecht Schuch (Bad Banks), Moritz Klaus (Phoenixsee), Aaron Hilmer (The Last Word), Edin Hasanovic (Skylines), Daniel Brühl (The Alienist), Adrian Grünewald (Sløborn), Devid Striesow (8 Days), Andreas Döhler (The Heavy Water War), Sebastian Hülk (Dark), Alexander Schuster (Mythomaniac), Luc Feit (Babylon Berlin), Michael Wittenborn (And Tomorrow the Entire World), Michael Stange (Marnow Murders), André Marcon (The Mad Women’s Ball), Tobias Langhoff (Bad Banks), and Anton von Lucke (The Mopes).

A production of Amusement Park Films, All Quiet on the Western Front is directed by Primetime Emmy® nominee Edward Berger (Patrick Melrose, Deutschland 83). It is written by Ian Stokell, Lesley Paterson, and Edward Berger, and produced by Malte Grunert and Daniel Dreifuß.

The 2022 Netflix version of All Quiet on the Western Front is the third filmed adaptation of the novel, and the first to be produced in the German language. The 1930 American-made film, which won two Oscars® (Best Picture and Best Director), is the first adaptation. The second is the 1979 made-for-TV movie starring Richard Thomas (The Waltons), which was nominated for seven Primetime Emmy® Awards and won one.
