Trailer for Apple TV+ & Ridley Scott film 'Napoleon' shows the horror of war

Apple TV+ has shared a dramatic first-look trailer at the Ridley Scott-directed epic historical drama ahead of the film's fall theatrical release.

The Apple Original depicts the life of Napoleon and how he became an emperor, focusing on his tumultuous relationship with Josephine. The film will also highlight Napoleon as a military leader and war visionary through its depictions of his famous battles.

The trailer, which is two and a half minutes long, provides a glimpse into the upcoming movie. The lead role of French emperor and military leader Napoleon Bonaparte is played by Oscar-winner "Joker" actor Joaquin Phoenix. Vanessa Kirby, recognized for her performance in "The Crown" on Netflix, portrays Josephine.

The film will be released theatrically worldwide on November 22. Apple has not given a date for when the film will land on Apple TV+.

Apple had signed the order for the project in early 2021, when it was still known under the name "Kitbag."
