The first full trailer of Christopher Nolan’s war film DUNKIRK has just released, promising yet another cinematic experience. The film that is set for a 21st July 2017 release will narrate the evacuation of Dunkirk, a British military operation that saved 330,000 lives as Allied soldiers were surrounded by German forces.
This WWII film is based on the events of Operation Dynamo, also known as the Miracle of DUNKIRK, which saved a huge number of Belgian, British, and French troops who were cut off from any connection and surrounded by Nazi forces. The operation was carried out between 26th May and 4th June 1940.
Christopher Nolan is known for his epic action films such as “Interstellar,” “Inception,” and “The Dark Knight” Trilogy. This time too, as we can see in this extended trailer, there is no dearth of action, and it seems to have some ultra-violent battle sequences.
The trailer however doesn’t show any specific character but only its ensemble cast that includes: Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Harry Styles. Probably, in the next trailer we will have more clarity on the main characters.
With DUNKIRK, Christopher Nolan has even aimed to achieve the standards of Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan. At least in this trailer, the war scenes depicting the harrowing battle promises a lot more.
