Newly released trailer for ‘Barry Lyndon’

Just as vibrant and urgent as it was when it debuted in 1975, Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon is perhaps the perfect historical epic movie to be re-introduced to a brand new audience.

In advance of the July 2016 re-release of the film in the UK,  a new trailer has been crafted for the film, one that builds in a contemporary feel without sacrificing the film’s authenticity.

Only a cinema screen can do justice to the stunning visuals of Barry Lyndon. Inspired by painters such as Thomas Gainsborough and William Hogarth, the film has a beautiful, painterly look, enhanced by filming in natural or historically accurate light sources.

My particular interest, of course, is that the miniature army of my ‘imagi-nation’, the Barryat of Lyndonia, is made up of the various units that appear in the movie, including Gale’s Regiment of Foot, the Régiment de Royal-Cravates, and the ‘Kubrick’ Infanterie Regiment.

    Nice work Arteis .

    I wonder if any of the other posters – know that the word -Cravat came from the neck wear worn by the Croatian or :- Hravati soldiers in the employ
    of Napoleon Bonaparte .
    So it seems you might have some … Dallies … in your line up.

  3. Absolutely lovely work on those Minden figures, beautifully presented and photographed. Thank you for alerting me to your blog on AMG Forum.

    Lovely work and a great homage to – IMO – the most beautiful movie ever filmed. A pity I live in the US as I would surely see the cinematic re-release multiple times if I could. The Blu-Ray version may not quite be the same but it is close.

I hope I've given you something to think about - please do leave a comment with your thoughts or reactions.
