Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Achieves Widespread Acclaim
New film expected to overtake ‘The Dark Knight’ as Nolan’s magnum opus
Christopher Nolan’s newest flick, ‘Dunkirk’ is not even out of the box office and already has movie buffs foaming agog in intractable anticipation. Hitting Vietnam’s big screens on 21st July 2017, the WWII film is presumed to shatter box offices, as it has already garnered astonishing universal acclamation and an unprecedented amount of 5-star reviews.
Starring Tom Hardy, Fionn Whitehead and featuring One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles (yes, that’s right...sweet Harry) the story is revealed from three perspectives; the land, the sea and the air.
It’s focused around true events surrounding the Dunkirk Evacuation where troops from Belgium, the British Empire & France are surrounded by Germans during a ferocious battle. As in quintessential Nolan fashion, watch as the unraveling tale becomes a galvanised visual symphony.
