Warner Bros. Pictures has released the Dunkirk trailer, providing our first official look at the epic second World War action thriller, directed by Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy) from his own original screenplay.
Utilizing a mixture of IMAX and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen, the film opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
Dunkirk features a prestigious cast, including Tom Hardy (The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception), Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies, “Wolf Hall”), Kenneth Branagh (My Week with Marilyn, Hamlet, Henry V) and Cillian Murphy (Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy), as well as newcomer Fionn Whitehead. The ensemble cast also includes Aneurin Barnard, Harry Styles, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden, Barry Keoghan and Tom Glynn-Carney.
The film is produced by Nolan and Emma Thomas (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy). Jake Myers (The Revenant, Interstellar, Jack Reacher) served as executive producer.
Look for Dunkirk to bow in theaters on July 21, 2017. In the meantime, check out the trailer below followed by the film’s new poster.
