Back in August we showed you the first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s latest film, Dunkirk. It was just one minute long and most of that minute was spent pumping up Nolan by reminding everyone about the previous films he has released.
Well, it’s December now, and we are finally getting our first real look at the World War II drama, which tells the story of the 10-day long battle and evacuation in the French city in 1940.
As with most Nolan movies, the cast is strong with this one. You have Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, and even One Direction’s Harry Styles. That’s right, the lead singer of the former boy band will be making his big-screen debut in the film. You can watch him briefly in the trailer below as part of a group of young soldiers witnessing the madness around them.
One thing you have to respect Nolan for is his desire to be as authentic as possible. He spent a lot of money and put in a lot of hard work to capture the realism of the bloody battle.
Dunkirk will hit theaters July 21, 2017.
