This is the time of year when Hollywood gears up for awards season. The Oscars are just around the corner and there is one movie which is gathering a lot of buzz. Tinsel town is raving about the new wartime biopic of Winston Churchill entitled ‘Darkest Hour’. It stars the great British actor Gary Oldman, who is tipped to win the Best Actor Oscar. ‘Darkest Hour’ comes hot on the heels of ‘Dunkirk’, the story of the famous wartime evacuation from France. It is directed by Christopher Nolan, who made the Batman Dark Knight trilogy.
The release of these big budget historical movies proves the publics continuing fascination with the Second World War. They have been a popular mainstay of cinema ever since. But there are different kinds of war films. We have had historical epics and serious dramas, such as those movies, but there are also escapist Boy’s Own action adventure films. ‘Where Eagles Dare’ starring Clint Eastwood, ‘The Dirty Dozen’ with Lee Marvin or ‘The Guns of Navarone’ with Gregory Peck.
If you are a fan of classic Mission war movies, you could experience the excitement for yourself. Visit Escape Rooms Scotland in Edinburgh, and follow in the footsteps of Marvin, McQueen and Peck, by playing our wartime game called The Bunker. As the name suggests, players will be trapped in an underground bunker during an air raid in 1942. The game has a four-star difficulty rating and is suitable for between two and six players. Your group will have to work together to solve the clues and unlock the door inside an hour, as the room before it fills up with gas.
Do you have the guts, brains and determination to make it out of the bunker alive? Why not bite the bullet, book The Bunker in Edinburgh and find out? It could be your finest hour.
