Dunkirk is finally now just days away from being released. The Christopher Nolan film may not have been the most anticipated film going into, but it could very well be the best going out of it. Nolan (finally) goes back in time to tell a story we’ve been wanting from him for years, war. His historical drama tells the story of the evacuation of Dunkirk, France during WWII as Allied forces were surrounded by German troops. The operation finished with saving an estimated 330,000 lives.
We’ve had some pretty great films this year, with many creating massive amounts of buzz through their runs, but none of them come close to Nolan’s new film. We all expected greatness being that it is Christopher Nolan, but early reviews were lifted early this week and all I can say is wow. Remember back in 2015 when George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road was around and the frenzy that film created for both the professional and regular movie going audiences? Yeah, that’s the case here. Sometimes I’ll post a few early words from those I follow or tell you what people are saying, yeah, I’m not doing that here. Why? Because you all deserve to see this film knowing as little as possible going in. I’ve yet to see the film, but I’m going as early as I possibly can Thursday night and I highly recommend you doing the same.
With its release so close to happening, the time for new or even old footage is over. And once again that’s very much the case as Warner Bros. has again taken a mysterious approach to the marketing of a Nolan film. Truthfully, every film should market a film like it’s directed by Christopher Nolan. Anyway, to continue to quench the thirst for this WWII film, I’ve attached every image and poster/banner released for the film thus far. While still just stills and one-sheets, the Nolan stamp is clearly still there with the beauty, tone, and feel. With trailers, images, and posters expressing such a strong vibe, let’s all hope it ends up along the lines of Fury Road, or even better. Dunkirk sails into theaters this weekend on July 21st, 2017.
