It looks nice, I guess. Maybe it will be more than just a vignette of well-shot scenes.

The film should've released in November or December during Oscar season where it had a much better chance of appealing to the target audience for this film.

One Direction fans know no bounds. I haven't looked at the comments from the newest trailer but when the first teaser dropped I remember all of the comments "WHERE IS HARRY?!?!"

LOL Youtube comments aren't really a good gauge of a film's success with a certain demographic. They're typically the loud minority.

It's amazing the amount of work that Nolan is doing with this film.

This shot right here is incredible. I thought the smoke in the background was CGI until I looked at some behind-the-scenes and it turns out it's real smoke. The massive scope of this shot with no CGI is insanity.

Those 1D fans going go nuts when they figure out he got 2 lines then dies but they already paid for them seats. No doubt those 2 lines going be best acting in world to them but going be funny see them complain as they probably expect he have a major role.

I think this looks pretty fucking great.

Expecting serious tension, brilliant music and moody cinematography. Hoping it's on the shorter side.

I was super hyped for this because Nolan, but that trailer deflated me. Looks like it might be bad.
Making a war film is different than making a blockbuster. I'm scared this will end up being Nolan's Pearl Harbour.

A big budget WW2 movie with British troops and it's about the greatest disaster of the war.

Still waiting for a Battle of Britain movie or even better, a movie about the Long Rage Desert Group / early SAS.

The main character is Patrick Wayne, and it takes place a few years before he went to create Wayne Tech. He was somehow involved in the Dunkirk evacuation.

Yeah these two, I do hope the French have some mention as they were also evacuated and not just the BEF. I hope this is at least somewhat historically accurate.

The trailer looked ok, I'm not sure what kind of movie they're going for here. It'll do well in Britain especially with anti-european views so prominent in the media at present.

I'm curious to see if Americans see a WW2 movie that doesn't seem to have any Americans in it

I'm betting on no

Looks good though, something about Nolan's dry and cool style is a good match for the setting

bless the fuck up for sure. the English side of the war has been woefully underrepresented in film for a while now. the fact that based Nolan himself is making a war movie about it is great.

If people are expecting a "War Movie" they will be disappointed.

This movie will be all about the evacuation of personnel from Dunkirk.

Might be because I'm not really a fan of watching movies or playing games based on historic wars but man this film is doing absolutely nothing for me

Coming from one of the biggest Nolan fanboys around I think this might be the first film of his I don't like. Can't actually believe I'm saying this. Enjoy your Oscar at least.

I mean in the way of saving Private Ryan or thin red line. This is going to be more about the evacuation.

It's neat that they went to that kind of effort. It hearkens back to the days of films like Bondarchuk's Waterloo. Dunkirk doesn't go to as crazy extents as that film but it's still nice to see.
