Looking to boost the film’s awards prospects, Warner Bros. will rerelease Christopher Nolan’s sweeping war epic Dunkirk in select theaters across the country, commencing Dec. 1.
Dunkirk will play in 50 Imax cinemas and on 70mm screens in 34 markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Dallas, Atlanta and Toronto, among others.
On January 24, the film’s rerelease will be expanded to include 250 additional locations.
“With Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan broke new ground in the use of large-format cameras to create a theatrical event that demands to be seen on the largest possible canvas. As we head into the holiday season, we are excited to offer audiences another opportunity to be swept up in this truly immersive moviegoing experience, whether for the first time or again,” Warners president of marketing and distribution Sue Kroll said in a statement.
Released in July, Dunkirk grossed a stellar $188 million domestically and $525 million globally. The movie recounts the famous World War II battle of the same name.
The ensemble cast features 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.
Nolan directed Dunkirk from his own screenplay, using a mixture of Imax and 65mm films.
