There’s no men in capes or cities folding in on themselves, but Dunkirk is setting itself up to be a hell of a war drama. The film is based off the real events around the evacuation of Dunkirk, in which nearly 400,000 British troops found themselves boxed in by German bombers. From the looks of it, the movie has the potential of rivaling the first 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan.
Though the effects and cinematography will make this films visually stunning, it’s the cast that is going to be what makes it an early awards contender. The film stars Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden, Barry Keoghan, Tom Glynn-Carney, and Harry Styles.
Dunkirk is set for release on July 21, 2017.
