Christopher Nolan returns with this highly-anticipated World War II thriller, set against the backdrop of the Battle of Dunkirk.

It’s May 1940. Germany have advanced into France, trapping Allied forces on the beaches of Dunkirk. As troops from Belgium, the British Empire, Canada, and France become surrounded by the German army, every serviceable naval and civilian vessel available attempt to rescue the troops, with the support of the air force.

Featuring an incredible cast including Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Harry Styles and James D’Arcy alongside a soundtrack from long-time collaborator Hans Zimmer, this is set to become one of the biggest films of the summer.
