Yesterday we got the first official poster for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, and that’s now been followed by a trailer. While it’s certainly intriguing, it’s perhaps not quite as big as you might have expected, and doesn’t really explain much about the plot, but it does do a decent job of making it look like a slightly more hopeful version of Saving Private Ryan.
It also briefly shows that this marks Harry Styles’ acting debut.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘”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 Harry Styles (One Direction) making his feature film debut.
‘Christopher Nolan (“Interstellar,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) is directing “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen.
‘“Dunkirk” 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.’
The film will be in cinemas next July.
