It's time for our first glimpse at Nolan's new World War II movie. Warner Bros has released the first short teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's WWII action thriller titled Dunkirk, about the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940. When Allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain and France were surrounded by the German army during a fierce battle in France at the start of World War II, they figured out how to evacuate as many as possible by boat across the English channel. The full cast includes Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh, James D'Arcy, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, Jack Lowden, Adam Long. As expected, this looks epic in scale and it still has the gritty Nolan feel to it. I can't wait to see more from this.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, direct from WB's YouTube:
Dunkirk tells the story 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 Battle of France in Word War II. Dunkirk is both written and directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the movies Following, Memento, Insomnia, The Prestige, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy and Interstellar previously. It was filmed on location on the actual beaches where the evacuation took place in Dunkirk, France. Warner Bros will release Nolan's Dunkirk in theaters everywhere starting July 21st, 2017 next summer. How does this look so far?
