For Christopher Nolan's next cinematic epic comes Dunkirk, which takes place during World War II. The film is depicting the mass evacuation of Dunkirk, which took place between May 26th and June 4th of 1940. Code named Operation Dynamo or alternatively known as the Miracle of Dunkirk it saved over 330,000 soldiers. Although the initial estimates stated that in 48 hours 45,000 men could be evacuated, instead Operation Dynamo became one of the most successful and ambitious military evacuations of all time.
So, with all the history part out of the way lets talk about the cast. Nolan, like many directors have certain actors they will always or frequently hire and this is no different for Dunkirk. Nolan regulars such as Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy are confirmed to make and appearance in the movie. However, if you spent a few seconds in the Dunkirk teaser trailers comment section it seems that most are there for one of the most unexpected castings. Harry Styles role in the film is currently unknown however it seems he may have a considerable role in the movie, only time will tell. But here is an image of him spotted on set.
Nolan's Dedication To Practice Effects
Christopher Nolan is one of the very few Hollywood Directors left to use practical effects, most famously he used practical effects in the truck flip scene from The Dark Knight. Yeah the only CG in that scene was removing a piston that launched the truck. But even the man himself is on a mission to top that, as it is reported that Nolan is going to crash a REAL vintage Nazi plane, and just in case this dedication to the old school practical effects the plane in question supposedly cost a whopping $5 million. Now if that isn't dedication to a movie then I don't know what is.
Alongside Nolan's usual set of actors there is no difference in music as its reported that Hans Zimmer, who wrote the legendary soundtrack to Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The movie is also produced by Christopher Nolan alongside his wife since 1997 Emma Thomas (Side note, together they created the film company Syncopy Films)
