While this may be true, I'm hoping the next film he makes doesn't have marketing state that it's from the director behind Dark Knight/Inception/Interstellar blah blah blah.

I'd be fine with just "From Academy Award-winning director Christopher Nolan" should he win one, or just his name. It's a test of how much of a household name he is. The Internet may know his name, but my mom doesn't. She doesn't even know of this film's existence, and commercials for this film pass by her on the daily. It'll have to take more to grab the masses.
That means Mr. Nolan would be endorsing the usage of an Academy Award to sell his name, and I don't think he would approve of that.

#Dunkirk heading to about $20M opening day FRI, wknd on track for around $52M. Will be 1st non-sequel to hit #1 since #WonderWoman.
:ugeek:
On top of that, it would be the first wholly-original film to hit #1 since The Bossy Baby, and the first wholly-original live-action film to hit #1 since Get Out.

I was genuinely expecting a C+ or something like that.

I was curious about the CinemaScore rating. I thought it would be a B+ or something, similar to Inception. I've noticed that the audience score on Rotten Tomatoes has been steadily getting lower (it's at 87% now).

"imma film my dog taking a shit"

WB, "we'll give you 150 million"

We'll see how it goes. Buzz this evening after my show was extremely positive. I wonder if Nolan is sort of alienating his diehard fans on the Internet but possibly bringing in a different audience for this one. They possibly end up offsetting each other.

Yeah, that's not what's happening.
