With the wealth of trailers coming in just as 2016 comes to a close you’d be forgiven for thinking that we’re all done for the year. Not so. In the rush to attach a promo to the Rogue One marketing bandwagon Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk is releasing its first full trailer on Thursday. Today we get a small tease in the form of the film’s first poster.

Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and Cillian Murphy all have their moment in Nolan’s last epic, which has already released an evocative teaser a few months ago. There are also unconfirmed reports that Nolan has aligned with IMAX to screen a seven-minute promo from Dunkirk before the latest Star Wars film.

Nolan blends IMAX footage with 65mm film, and it looks as though he’s creating something very special with this new film. The teaser we saw recently promises a terrifying recreation of one of the most dramatic events of World War II, and with a cast that includes One Direction’s Harry Styles, there’ll be something for everyone.

Dunkirk Movie Synopsis

Miraculous evacuation of Allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain and France, who were cut off and surrounded by the German army from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, France, between May 27- June 04, 1940, during Battle of France in World War II.

As part of our interview with Cillian Murphy for Anthropoid (who appears below with his co-star Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan) we talked about his time on Nolan’s film.

The first full trailer will be out in a few days, until then check out the new poster for Dunkirk below. Yes, it’s another ‘Man with his back to the camera’ design but it’s a very effective first look at the devastation we’re about to be thrown into.

Dunkirk is released in the UK and the US on the 21st of July 2017.
