Director Christopher Nolan. ©2014 Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. and Paramount Pictures Corporation. All Rights Reserved.Warner Bros. Pictures announced recently that Christopher Nolan will be directing the upcoming World War II movie, Dunkirk, which is about the legendary evacuation of a northern French city during WWII.

He will be using 65mm and IMAX 65mm film, which is a continuation of his usage of film, and specifically, IMAX film, to tell his stories. Some of his previous movies have utilized IMAX film to convey greater impact and scale, and he has been a big proponent of continuing to shoot on film instead of digitally (he'd also prefer if you watched his movies on film instead). The leads have not yet been cast, but some familiar names are being considered for the adult roles, including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and Tom Hardy.

For more information about the movie, please visit the Movie Information page for Dunkirk and then add it to your list of Favorite Movies to stay up to date in advance of its July 21, 2017 release!
