Dunkirk Trailer

"The call went out. We have to go to Dunkirk. Ready on the stern line." Warner Bros has revealed the third official trailer for Christopher Nolan's WWII action thriller Dunkirk, about the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940 at the beginning of WWII. This is the longest, most impressive trailer for this film yet. Starring Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh, James D'Arcy, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, Jack Lowden, and Adam Long. When Allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain and France were surrounded by the German army during a fierce battle in France at the start of WWII, they had to evacuate by boat across the English channel. This is an intense, thrilling trailer and finally packs in a whole bunch of outstanding footage from Nolan's WWII film. The way this builds makes my heart race. Can't wait to see it!

Here's the third official trailer (+ poster) for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, direct from WB's YouTube:

You can still see the first short teaser trailer for Nolan's Dunkirk here, or the second theatrical trailer here.

Dunkirk tells the story of the miraculous evacuation of Allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain and France, who were cut off and surrounded by the German army from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, France, between May 27th and June 4th, 1940, during Battle of France in Word War II. Dunkirk is both written and directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the movies Following, Memento, Insomnia, The Prestige, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy and Interstellar previously. It was filmed on location on the actual beaches where the evacuation took place in Dunkirk, France. Warner Bros will release Dunkirk in theaters everywhere on July 21st this summer. We'll be there opening night. What about you?

    yeah man.. seriously.. I got nothing.. wow
  • Bloody men. Always killing each other... I'm in.

      Yea, but Tom Hardy wearing another mask? What's with masks and this guy. I think he's the greatest actor alive with no one else close to him, but I gotta ask why all these masks? I'm perplexed, an explanation for me?
      • Of course I have an explanation! ;D Well, he's a pilot, and he needs oxygen.
        • Bo
          Cute...very, very cute...but I asked about 'all these masks' in the Bat movie...why?...again in the Mad Max movie...and now this because he need oxygen? I'm deeply unsatisfied with you explanation, tarek. Will you please try again?...pretty please? Hint...I think Hardy has some kind of weird trip going with I know...that's pretty lame... Well, a high level spiritual master enlightened and all guy I've been reading says the only answer to any questions as to why is think he's hit the nail on the proverbial Still...Hardy...masks...weird...thank god there wasn't one in The Drop...great flick...or Taboo...great series... so I'm gonna be okay...
          • We all wear masks Bo. We are part of a big mardi gras. ;D As for why Tom wears lot of masks, I think he is attracted by this kind of roles where the character is a tortured soul and body.
          • Bo
   we're getting could count on you to steer the conversation to a philosophical one, tarek...thank you, sir!...and indeed we all wear masks...important to least most do unless, they, like myself, no longer feel any need to... however, as the great T.S. Eliot wrote in his excellent poem The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock...'to prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet'...great line. I still think it of interest...a human interest point if you will...that Hardy now is again wearing a mask yet again in another movie...why I find that of interest is of interest in and of itself, no doubt. I wonder if he has any other scenes in Dunkirk out of his airplane where he's not wearing that oxygen mask. Perhaps you'll let me know as I have no interest in seeing this film until it comes around cable. He's a great actor and I'm delighted that he's here among us working and making stuff I find worth my while. God knows there is very little of that for me these days. Later gator. Good discussion regarding masks, etc.

            I still remember the poster I had of you on the back of my bedroom door when I was a kid!! You're hot!!
          • Bo
            I've absolutely no clue what this reply is about, means, it's purpose, etc.
          • LeoForPrez
            That's because you are an idiot
          • dan
            no mask in "legend". no mask in "lawless" - both fantastic movies. I think you're overreacting.
          • Bo
            You do, do you?, Dan. I was teasing/joking as is my want with my friend tarek here. It was between us and he understood. So. Perhaps overreacting is something you might look at here?...take it easy, man...chill...Peace. Oh, Legend was pretty good, but far from fantastic...Lawless was neither and didn't work and wasn't a very good movie...that'd by in my opinion I might add. Which makes me right, in my opinion. Joking here again, Danny boy in case you are unable to pick up on that
          • dan
            you were over reacting - there was no mention of it being a joke. by the way - why would you think I need to "relax". I'm not upset at all. also, I didn't ask for your opinion of the films. I was giving MY opinion. it appears your reading comprehension skills need a lot of work. you're a really odd person.
          • Bo
            Why you would seem to think that I would have the slightest interest in what you think is beyond me. Your self centered insertion into a conversation I was having with tarek wasn't invited and your thinking and consequent misunderstanding is your problem. I do thank you for your only correct observation...I am really an odd person and gratefully so. Better than being a normal, unaware, busy body who butts into other's conversations and then arrogantly states their incorrect thoughts about said conversations. Let's leave this as being done, Dan. I decided to at least respond to your silly an immature need to tell me what you think as if what you think is of utmost You're the kind of person I've little to no interest in and will not read any further utterances from you on the matter. Tarek and I enjoyed our banter and why you think what you think about it is just ridiculous. So... I shall make use of the delightful, in this case, delete button before reading any other word from you. Now let's see if you can resist replying anyway knowing I won't read it...I have a pretty good idea you won't be able to just seem like that kind of guy...which is an odd kind of't resist...all this because of a silly joke with another poster who understands my humor and which was none of your business in the first place. Think about that dude. You no longer exist to me.
          • LeoForPrez
            "Now let's see if you can resist replying anyway knowing I won't read it" HAHAHAHAHHAH Heard that one before. Bo has no self control.
          • LeoForPrez
            making more friends? HAHAHAHHAAH
      • CyraNOSE
        How many has he wore? This is only the second I know of.
        • Bo
          Well, you're not paying attention. He wore one all through the Batman movie, wore one for several sequences in the Mad Max movie, and now this one playing a pilot. Look, if people here would pay attention they would realize I was in communication with tarek and our bantering is filled with jokes and irony, etc. This is no big deal. As I made very, very thinking is Tom Hardy is the best working actor today and might be the best ever...he is certainly one of the best ever....mask(s) or not. Cheers!
      • LeoForPrez
        Pilots wear at 11 HAHAHAHAHHAH
  • TheOct8pus
    Visually looks good, and I'm sure there's plenty of emotions to go around, but if I didn't know what this movie was about, I'd have no idea what was happening based on the trailer. ....oh....and why do directors love covering Tom Hardy's face?

    WAR!! HUH!! - Good god ya'll WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?! -Absolutely NOTHING! -Say it again! WOOOOOOWWWWW! *enter the funk* Yeah, looks damn good.
    Wow! Looks certainly quite busy. I was surprised to see the boy wear a sweater vest I also own.
    • Your style is classic I guess!
    Notice the helmets in the poster...yeah.
  • As much I love Interstellar, Inception and The Dark Knight...I'm not feeling compelled to see it. I've seen Band of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan, We Were Soldiers, The Thin Red Line, Patton etc etc. I'm done with war movies. They take an emotional on me and I just don't enjoy them anymore.
    • bumboclot
      Yeah that's really rough. Almost as bad as being in a war. Maybe that's the point of war movies.
      • Not looking for sympathy, just sharing a viewpoint. And I have much respect for anyone that puts themselves on the line for their country. I have several friends and family that are serviceman. And I get portraying the gritty realism of war in film, just doesn't mean I enjoy it.
  • LeoForPrez
    The only movie I must see this year
  • Lewis
    Visually it well be as stunning as normal for Nolan, but I'm concerned with how epic this will be. I really don't want to sit through an overly long war movie with several strands of plot. Still not convinced that for a man of his style he's picked the wrong war material to use, when with the 75th anniversary of the SAS was last year he could of used new unreleased material on that fledgling group in WWII.
  • Moe
    Just not feeling it. At all... I dont know why. Nolan is an exceptional director but I'm not feeling it...
    • CyraNOSE
      That's what she said.
  • Can't get into it because the topic doesn't interest me...
    • CyraNOSE
      Ok, thanks for telling us.
  • This is one of the most moving and incredible stories of heroism of WW2 - or any war. The British people at their finest. I’ve a guess that they must be saving the spectacle for the actual movie rather than blowing it in the trailer. I sure hope so. I know I’m going to be a blubbering mess throughout it all.
  • TAH
    Really looking forward to this one. It's surely going to be brutal watching though.
  • This looks great. Finally something other than the American perspective. But ultimately, the Germans permitted the British to escape from Dunkirk - that's historical fact. The Brits were allowed to evacuate; so if anything it should be a story of German forbearance.
