It’s time for a first glimpse at Nolan’s new World War II movie “Dunkirk”. Warner Bros has released this first short teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s action thriller a few days ago. The movie is about the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940. When Allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain and France were surrounded by the German army during a fierce battle in France at the start of World War II, they figured out how to evacuate as many as possible by boat across the English channel.
Synopsis: “Dunkirk” opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
The movie will be featuring a prestigious cast, including Tom Hardy (“The Revenant,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Inception”), Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies,” “Wolf Hall”), Kenneth Branagh (“My Week with Marilyn,” “Hamlet,” “Henry V”) and Cillian Murphy (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), as well as newcomer Fionn Whitehead. The ensemble cast also includes Aneurin Barnard, Harry Styles, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden, Barry Keoghan and Tom Glynn-Carney.
