What is Napoleon about?

Scott’s film explores Napoleon’s life and military achievements, as well as his relentless quest for power. The Man in the High Castle, All the Money in the World, and The Day the Earth Stood Still are just a few of David Scarpa’s previous works. Napoleon’s story will be told against the backdrop of the war-torn landscape of the French Revolutionary Wars, where the military commander proved himself an able leader as his bold military and political tactics made him a visionary in the field and often brought France to victory.

The film will see Phoenix take to the battlefield in character as Scott showcases his keen eye for detail in multiple epic battle sequences, which were teased in the film’s first trailer. As well as exploring his rise to power, the film will also be told through the prism of his relationship with Josephine, his one true love who came to rule by his side as Empress. Their relationship is described as “addictive” and “volatile” in the film, with the pair meeting under unexpected circumstances before embarking on their romance.
