The first teaser trailer (or “announcement” as Warner Bros. calls it) for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk was released this afternoon. The official website has also gone live, while the social media sites still look bare. You can also see the announcement in theaters and IMAX with Suicide Squad this weekend. Dunkirk invades theaters July 21, 2017.
Production on Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk has officially started in France this week. For the last week or two, what appeared to be either costume or camera tests have been taking place. Harry Styles has been spotted on location, as well as Cillian Murphy, Christopher Nolan and Mark Rylance. Coinciding with the start of filming, Warner Bros. has also released the first official synopsis for the film.
You might know Cillian Murphy as the talented Irish actor from In the Heart of the Sea, Peaky Blinders, or Red Eye. Or you might know him as the man with a sack over his head in Christopher Nolan films like Inception, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and Batman Begins. TheWrap is reporting that Christopher Nolan has selected Cillian Murphy for his ever-growing ensemble cast enlisted for Dunkirk. Murphy joins Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh — all of whom will likely outrank newcomers Finn Whitehead, Jack Lowden, Aneurin Barnard, and Harry Styles. Dunkirk is set to start filming in the next few months. What are the chances Murphy ends up with something obstructing his face from camera in Dunkirk?
