‘Dunkirk’: 9 Things You Need to Know About Christopher Nolan’s WWII Blockbuster

“Dunkirk” recounts the events of Operation Dynamo during WWII. The mission was planned after large numbers of British soldiers were cut off and surrounded on Dunkirk beach by the German army during the Battle of France. The movie is told from three perspectives: The soldiers trying to survive on the beach, the air force trying to keep them safe from German forces, and the navy and civilian boats who attempted to rescue the soldiers. Tom Hardy, Fionn Whitehead, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh star.

Warner Brothers opens in theaters July 21 and will certainly be one of the biggest movie experiences of the year. Nolan shot 75% of the movie using IMAX cameras. Watch the latest trailer below.
