As reported by “Variety,” the film about the world-conquering French emperor consumed by the thirst for conquest will be available to users of the service starting from March 1st. Let’s recall that Apple invested around $200 million in the production of the film.

“Napoleon,” as advertised by the distributor, is a spectacular, epic drama illustrating Napoleon Bonaparte’s turbulent journey to the top, portrayed by Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix. Set against the stunning cinematic backdrop painted by legendary director Ridley Scott, the film follows Napoleon’s relentless pursuit of power, examining it from the perspective of his addictive, unpredictable relationship with his one true love, Josephine. Providing the backdrop for showcasing Napoleon’s visionary military and political tactics are some of the most dynamic battle scenes in cinema history.

The screenplay for “Napoleon” was written by David Scarpa (“All the Money in the World”). The cinematography is handled by Ridley Scott’s longtime collaborator, Dariusz Wolski.

For Scott, this is not his first cinematic encounter with the Napoleonic era. At the beginning of his career, in the 1977 film “The Duellists,” he told the story of two soldiers of Bonaparte who, over the years, keep returning to their titular honorable duel’s conclusion, unsuccessfully trying to settle it once and for all.

Let’s remember that Ridley Scott and Joaquin Phoenix last worked closely together nearly a quarter-century ago on the Oscar-winning “Gladiator.”
