The Announcement Trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk is Here

If this trailer seems vague, it should be noted that Christopher Nolan is known for vague.  However, in this case, the story is a little more well-known.  The historical film follows the events from World War II when British soldiers were trying to evacuate Dunkirk.  Dunkirk stars Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and newcomer Fionn Whitehead.

Visually, the trailer looks stunning.  Even in a few shots, Nolan is able to capture beauty in an otherwise tragic event.  The final scene, when the soldiers look up in confusion and fear is monumental.  How he can capture the chain of the events through the eyes of hundreds of soldiers will be captivating to watch when Warner Bros. releases Dunkirk on July 21, 2017!

“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.
