Christopher Nolan films have become a pilgrimage of sorts for most cinephiles, with each new release now such a highly anticipated movie going event that in effect Nolan himself is each films biggest star.
This is evidenced in the teaser trailer for Nolan’s next film Dunkirk, a movie starring Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and oddly enough pop-star Harry Styles of One Direction fame, are all of which absent or at least not directly referenced in any frame of this footage. Instead it’s Nolan’s signature drab, grey cinematography and his trademark intensity that are the focal points of this teaser and it has already garnered tons of attention online.
Dunkirk, tells the story of Operation Dynamo, a final, frantic attempt to evacuate 300,000 allied troops from the clutches of Nazi soldiers in the French seaport of Dunkirk. An original script by Christopher Nolan inspired by an amazing WW-II story gives Dunkirk all the trappings of a potential modern classic. The film is set to be released on July 21st, 2017.
