First Poster: Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk”

Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled the first poster for Christopher Nolan’s new WWII drama thriller “Dunkirk”. The one-sheet comes ahead of a new trailer expected to debut online this week and in cinemas with “Rogue One”.

Based on true events, the film chronicles the evacuation of Dunkirk during the British military operation that saved a third of a million Allied soldier lives as they were surrounded by German forces.

Shot entirely in IMAX 65mm film and 65mm large-format photography by Hoyte van Hoytema (“Interstellar,” “Spectre”), the film stars Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden, Barry Keoghan, Tom Glynn-Carney, and Harry Styles.

“Rogue One” attendees at film-projection IMAX theaters this weekend will also be treated to a special seven-minute prologue. “Dunkirk” opens in cinemas on July 21st next year.
