'Dunkirk' Trailer Puts the Battle in a New Light
Dunkirk is bringing the battle to the big screen.
The new trailer for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk reveals more from the World War II-set film, which tells the story of one of the war's biggest battles, the 1940 evacuation of the French City of Dunkirk.
Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh and Harry Styles are among the cast.
In March, Nolan showed off footage at CinemaCon.
“Dunkirk and the legend of it is something that British people grow up with – it’s in our DNA," said Nolan. "The idea of taking this paradoxical situation and putting it on the big screen – it’s something that’s been close to my heart for some time, it’s something I didn’t think I was ready to do.”
Dunkirk hits theaters July 21.
