Seems like it'll be more of a drama than a war movie, can't wait to see it either way.

I'm curious if this will find any market share in the USA, considering Americans weren't part of the rescue @ Dunkirk

As long as Nolan doesn't twist history to give USA more of role in rescue @ Dunkirk. Plenty of American world scale war films tend increase the American role on film compared to history. U-571 always comes to mind.

Amazing trailer. I saw it for the first time this morning before the feature film "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" at Scotiabank's laser IMAX theatre.

So glad Christopher Nolan is filming using IMAX cameras again. I was absolutely blown away to see the trailer was almost entirely in its IMAX aspect ratio of 1.44 to 1 and it only cropped down to the regular widescreen 2.35 to 1 for only a little bit. I'd say about 97% of the trailer was shown in full IMAX. Just WOW to what I saw this morning!!! Smiling Face With Sunglasses

edit: after checking wikipedia below I must have just watched the 7 minute IMAX preview instead of the trailer. Super cool.


The announcement trailer debuted in theatres ahead of the superhero film Suicide Squad[28] and was released online on 4 August 2016.[29] According to data analytics firm ListenFirst Media, it generated the most Twitter engagement of all the trailers that were released that week.[30] The second trailer was released on 14 December 2016,[31] and shortly thereafter, a seven-minute preview was displayed prior to select 70mm IMAX showings of Rogue One.[32]

Christopher Nolan explains PG-13 rating in an interview with The Associated Press at the recent CinemaCon in Las Vegas
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/ ... R_NOLAN_QA
AP: This film has been rated PG-13. Was that a choice you made during production?

Nolan: All of my big blockbuster films have been PG-13. It's a rating I feel comfortable working with totally. "Dunkirk" is not a war film. It's a survival story and first and foremost a suspense film. So while there is a high level of intensity to it, it does not necessarily concern itself with the bloody aspects of combat, which have been so well done in so many films. We were really trying to take a different approach and achieve intensity in a different way. I would really like lots of different types of people to get something out of the experience.

I don't think I've ever seen a modern day war movie that wasn't rated R (in the US).

ETA: Oops, forgot about Pearl Harbor.
