Happy Friday, Here’s a Badass New ‘Dunkirk’ Trailer

If the initial teaser for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk left you feeling a little cold, fear not. This first full-length trailer should assuage all concerns.

Check this out:

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

This is infinitely better than the first glimpse we had, and looks like a fascinating blend of dogfights (which seem few and far between in Hollywood these days), and a real attention on the details of these men’s lives. Wonderful tension, shots with beautiful texture, all the things we’ve come to expect from a Christopher Nolan production is here.

Dunkirk stars Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and some kid I’ve never heard of… Harry something. I think he’s a singer?

This has all the potential in the world to be a classic in the war genre. We’ll see when it opens July 21st. I know I’m down.
