The plot of the Asylum version of Dunkirk is described as (http://www.dailyjournal.net/2016/11/12/ ... _atterbury_/):
A group of British soldiers is sent on a mission to retrieve a mysterious package that contains the algorithm for radar. Trapped behind Nazi lines, they have to sneak back to safety with the war effort in the balance.

I'm probably reaching, but doesn't Asylum make parodies of big blockbusters? So is there any chance that the plot for the Asylum version is based on Nolan's screenplay for Dunkirk? (Probably not, I know :))

If Nolan decided to transmit us the synopsis by giving it to Asylum so they could publish it like their own synopsis but truly it's Nolan's in the disguise, that's one hell of an original way to do so!

Yeah well I know Nolan wouldn't give them the screenplay since he's probably the most secretive guy in the world, but I thought maybe Asylum got their hands on the script at some way.

But as I said, it's pure speculation. Don't think this actually happened lol

The 2017 movies we can't wait to see
Next year is shaping up to be a cinematic cracker. These are the 50 upcoming movies we’re most excited about in 2017
Dunkirk

Few filmmakers tell grander stories than Christopher Nolan, and stories don’t come much grander than the British retreat from Dunkirk in the face of overwhelming Nazi forces. This looks like a modern-day version of one of those sprawling wartime epics you used to watch on bank holiday afternoons. The cast is typically impressive, with Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance and One Direction moppet Harry Styles just the tip of a massive iceberg. Expect plenty of pluck, derring-do and explosions.

It's a "things to do" type of free magazine, also filled with ads for local shops.

I remember seeing Time Out magazine in London decades ago. There is also a New York City edition but on the NY Time Out's website I do not see that article. They actually covers dozens of world cities but this movie article may only be in the London one or possibly only on the London part of the website:

LOL I'm not asking what is Time Out. :lol:

I'm about few other filmmakers telling stories grander than Chris's stories they've mentioned.

Certainly no modern filmmaker. Only Lean, Kurosawa, Kubrick, and maybe 70s/-90s Spielberg have him beat, and Nolan's not even 20 years into his career.
