Cast and shooting details arrive for Christopher Nolan's WW II epic Dunkirk

12.28.2015

Details have been sparse on Christopher Nolan's latest, which is pretty much par for the course regarding the ever ambitious director. That's about to change as we now have some details on the man's World War II picture, DUNKIRK, that's already set for release on July 21, 2017. As Variety is reporting, the film will follow the (surprise) Dunkirk evacuation, also known as Operation Dynamo or The Miracle of Dunkirk.

Operation Dynamo was the evacuation of Allied soldiers from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk, France, between 27 May and 4 June 1940, during the second World War. Large numbers of Belgian, British, and French troops were cut off and surrounded by the German army during the Battle of France. After a total of 8 days, 338,226 soldiers were rescued by a hastily assembled fleet of over 800 boats.

Joining Christopher Nolan on this WWII picture will be Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy, among an ensemble of "unknowns." Nolan will also be shooting DUNKIRK on IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film (a la HATEFUL EIGHT). Sounds like we're going to see a war picture like never before!

Christopher Nolan's DUNKIRK will open on July 21, 2017.

Interesting

However I'm concerned about the aspect ratio of the film. If the article is accurate, then no 35mm this time, so will Chris scale down the 65mm prints to 2.35:1 and keep the IMAX 70 at 1.78:1 or will he maintain a straight (say) 2.20:1 or 1.85:1 for the whole movie?

Excited about this. Nolan venturing into a new subject matter, the cast (especially Hardy), and the use of IMAX/film format. At this point I'll see whatever Nolan does.

I've always been a fan of Branagh (actor and director) and I'm excited to see he's involved in this.

Tom Hardy is certainly building quite the resume.

They should get Michael Caine, Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy to join this project.

Would love to see him recollaborate with Pearce, Bale, and/or Jackman for one of his films again. And I'm assuming Michael Caine already has a part in this considering his track record with Nolan.
