Movie Artwork

Director Christopher Nolan is bringing the World War II movie, Dunkirk, to theaters on July 21, 2017, and moviegoers in select areas will have the chance to see the movie on 70mm film instead of via Digital Cinema Projection systems, which are now commonplace in the industry.

The movie was created using large-format 70mm IMAX and 65mm film cameras, of which Nolan is a big fan. He has previously created portions of previous movies with the cameras, such as The Dark Knight, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Interstellar, and he's a big proponent of showing movies with film instead of digital projectors.

“I have been a longtime proponent of film – particularly the IMAX film format – as a storytelling medium,” said Christopher Nolan. “The immersive quality of the image is second to none, drawing the audience into the action in the most intense way possible.”

For more information about why this is a good thing, please see the Journal article titled Watch the Upcoming WWII Movie 'Dunkirk' on 70mm Film.
