I don't think I've ever seen a modern day war movie that wasn't rated R (in the US).
Good observation, but it's a smart move in this case - making an R-rated Christopher Nolan film would be box office suicide since the majority of his audience is under 18.

The Majority of his audience is under 18? huh?

I do trust in Nolan. I haven't seen his earliest directed works but have seen everything 2000 and beyond. Even his so-called mis-steps like Interstellar were films I found very enjoyable. I'll be seeing Dunkirk.

Hmmm.. what makes you say that? Even his superhero movies are made for a more adult audience...

I am a huge Nolan fan and I am wondering in which theater can I watch this in 70mm in Toronto? Or should I just go to a regular Imax screening?

Best places to watch are either the IMAX in Vaughan or Mississauga. They offer the 70mm experience in IMAX. Most folks will agree that it's the best way to watch it.
Which format is the one, true Dunkirk? Nolan is known for relentlessly checking the quality of his films across the different distribution mediums, but in this case we’re talking about a film that was shot natively on two different 65mm formats. The ultimate expression of Nolan’s vision is no doubt the IMAX 70mm, with the traditional 70mm presentation running right behind.
You can find the screenings for IMAX 70mm here:

Anyone know from previous history if 70mm Imax movies are usually available in the 2nd week, ie. Weekend of July 29/30.

I wish the IMAX at the silvercity here was a real one. It's a fake imax :( I still go see all my films on it, but it's not the same.

The museum here has a real IMAX and plays commercial movies on it, but they play them months after they come out. Usually right at the same time as you can watch it at home. Kind of kills the desire to pay them full price to see a movie you can watch at home.

Coming out in a few days and no reviews at all?!

Anyone know if there an embargo in place or if we have a possible dud?
I see this but don't really know the people posting; seem like second-rate bloggers/critics?

The embargo should be lifted today but I forgot what time. Anyways I have decided to watch in my regular cineplex with Imax. Going to mississauga for 70mm is too far for me.
