The excitement for Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ is palpable. After all, there’s no single director who enjoys the kind of fan following that he does.
This second trailer definitely reminds you of the “dark” quality that you associate with several of the Nolan’s past films like ‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘Inception’ even though the war genre is very different from anything Nolan has attempted in the past. Also, one can sense that Nolan has ensured that his film appears different from the other war movies — there’s a unmissable look and feel to the film.
For those who still don’t know, ‘Dunkirk’ is an “epic action thriller” about thousands of British and Allied troops surrounded by the German army on the beaches of France in 1940. More than 300,000 troops were ultimately evacuated by sea in an operation that became known as the Miracle of Dunkirk. Read the full history behind the film here.
The cast includes the likes of Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, and Kenneth Branagh, along with Nolan’s new discovery Fionn Whitehead. Other actors include Jack Lowden and Barry Keoghan and One Direction member Harry Styles. Hoyte van Hoytema has done the cinematography; Hoytema previously collaborated with director Christopher Nolan on his 2014 film ‘Interstellar’. Nolan’s favorite composer Hans Zimmer is doing the score for the film.
