Dunkirk is the first Christopher Nolan movie to hit the big screen since 2014’s Interstellar.
More down-to-earth this time, it tells the tale of the miraculous evacuation of Allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain and France, who were cut off and surrounded by the German army from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, France, between May 27th and June 4th 1940, during the Battle of France in World War II.
The film isn’t short on big names, as it stars Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, James D’Arcy, Aneurin Barnard, Jack Gover and, somehow, One Direction’s Harry Styles!
If there’s one man that knows what to do with 70mm IMAX in 1.44:1, it’s Christopher Nolan. If he put out a film of him reading the phone book in 1.44:1, I’d probably pay £15 to go and see that in IMAX.
Dunkirk washes up on UK shores on July 21st, 2017.
Check out the trailer below, which Warner Bros UK are calling the Offical Main Trailer, but which also is being called the second trailer by a lot of other places as there was one other trailer in Decenber which Warner called the Survival Teaser. Confused?
Oh, and click on the poster for the full-size image, which is more hi-res than 4K!
