Check out the new poster for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk

The second poster for Christopher Nolan’s epic World War II thriller Dunkirk has been released and it features a close up shot of Fionn Whitehead in a crawling position covered in sand, on the beach of Dunkirk which was under attack by the German armed forces. The poster does a great job at capturing the intensity of the subject that the film deals with and has the tagline ” When 400,000 men couldn’t get home, home came for them” which was also used in the film’s official trailer. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the poster release.

Dunkirk comes from the highly acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan who has earlier given us masterpieces such as The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception and Interstellar. He has written, co- produced and directed this film based on the WWII Dunkirk evacuation which stars Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Fionn Whitehead, Aneurin Barnard, Harry Styles, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden, Barry Keoghan, and Tom Glynn-Carney.

Let’s take a look at the trailer of this highly anticipated film.

Dunkirk highlights an event that shaped our world. The film follows allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire, Canada, and France who were cut off and surrounded by the German army from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, France, between May 26- June 04, 1940, during Battle of France in World War II. What followed was an incredible military operation which miraculously evacuated these troops from Dunkirk.

Christopher Nolan has taken his technical game up by a few notches with this film and it is evident in the trailer. Reportedly, the film will have more IMAX footage than any of Nolan’s previous works. He shot the film in the same location where the historical evacuation took place in Dunkirk, France. Trust, Christopher Nolan to go the extra mile with every film.

The film hits theaters on 21 July.
