Dunkirk

 

Postby Hugo » Tue Dec 29, 2015 9:32 am

UPDATE, 11:17 AM: Following up on earlier reports including one from Deadline this morning, Warner Bros has confirmed that Christopher Nolan’s next film is indeed the WWII Dunkirk evacuation project. It’s called Dunkirk, and Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy will be part of an ensemble made up largely of unknowns. Pic will be shot on IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film. Everything else is as our International Editor Nancy Tartaglione reported it earlier this morning.

This looks like it's gonna be an epic war film! Dunkirk is one of the most fascinating episodes of WWII and hopefully Nolan won't screw it up :lol: 8-)

From that trailer it does seem to suggest that they are correcting the myth the RAF were not around to stop the German planes.

A recent documentary on Channel Four has shown that the RAF and in-particular the Spitfire actually made certain that the evacuation was possible. By stopping most of the German planes getting through. It's just that the troops on the ground could not see the planes fighting at the high altitudes or were inland breaking up the bomber formations before they reached the beaches and the ships rescuing them.

If the film does show this and sticks largely to historical facts in the 2 or so hours, then it will be a good film and for that reason will deliver all the excitement you need.

With Nolan and Zimmer involved, what could go wrong? I want to see this.

First reactions are overwhelmingly positive.

Can't wait to see this film in IMAX. :D

Harry certainly picked a good movie to debut in.

lol I had to search to understand this comment, I had no idea.

I wonder how many of his fans knew about 'Dunkirk' before his casting? :lol:

‘Dunkirk’ Flying To $51M; ‘Girls Trip’ Driving To $28M+; ‘Valerian’ Still A Disaster With $16M+

Dunkirk is excelling with a $19.7 million opening day, bound for a $51M opening weekend at 3,720 venues.

That’s a very good start for this movie I’m told, one that will enable this British World War II title to leg out to a 3x multiple. Director Christopher Nolan’s previous movie Interstellar posted a three-day of $47.5M and churned a near 4x multiple at the domestic B.O., ending with $188M. His films just have great holds.

Heading into the weekend, many predicted Dunkirk wouldn’t take flight given its standard appeal among older Caucasian men. However, great reviews, an A- CinemaScore tonight, plus Nolan’s fanbase are lifting this pic past its $35M-$40M projection. Yes, men over 25 make up close to 50% of the main draw here per ComScore/Screen Engine’s PostTrak, but Dunkirk is also playing incredibly well to older females and younger guys.

“Dunkirk will somehow make money,” one packager praised about its prospects. “Don’t ask me how, but I am done betting against Chris Nolan.” As pointed out previously, Interstellar with a cost $165M before P&A turned a $47M-plus profit.

I just got back from the theatres. The viusals were stunning but the story could have been better TBH. It's just not as epic as I thought it would be. More than 300k men were evcacuated from the beaches of Dunkirk and you get the feeling there were handful of them.
It was just an ok war film in the end.
