With Dunkirk already a huge hit in cinemas, watch as director Christopher Nolan explains how he planned such an epic production...
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. The story unfolds on land, sea and air. RAF Spitfires engage the enemy in the skies above the Channel, trying to protect the defenceless men below. Meanwhile, hundreds of small boats manned by both military and civilians are mounting a desperate rescue effort, risking their lives in a race against time to save even a fraction of their army.
Directed by Christopher Nolan from his own screenplay,“Dunkirk” features a stellar ensemble cast, including Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.
“Dunkirk” was filmed on location in France, Holland, the UK and Los Angeles using a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. It's in cinemas now.
