When a trailer for a Christopher Nolan film is released, you sit up and pay attention. Unfortunately, the first trailer for Dunkirk, like the initial trailer for Nolan’s previous film, Interstellar, doesn’t give away a whole lot of information. We’re still sitting up. We’re still paying attention. We may even have to rewatch The Dark Knight Rises and Inception just to quell our excitement.
There’s a little something for everyone in Dunkirk. You got your Tom Hardy for Mad Max fans. You got your Harry Style for One Direction fans. You got your Cillian Murphy for Scarecrow fans. You got your Mark Rylance for Oscar/English accent fans.
Our main concern is genre fatigue. Can Nolan bring something new to World War 2 cinema? It’s been the subject of many a fine film. Our guess is probably yes. This is the man that gave us Bane, the zero gravity hotel fight scene and Sammy Jankis.
Whether we’re right or whether we’re wrong, we’re not going to know for a long time, because this puppy aint coming out for almost a year. Happy waiting.
