LOS ANGELES (EON) – Warner Bros. has released the official trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming war epic, Dunkirk.
Set in 1940, the World War II picture details the evacuation of 400,000 Belgian, British, Canadian and French troops who were surrounded by the German Army, ultimately facing capture or slaughter during the Battle of France.
At its heart, it’s a survival story. The enemy is closing in on the British on this beach with no escape. I wanted to put the audience in the story.”
In addition to directing, Nolan produced the movie alongside Emma Thomas and Warner Bros.
Dunkirk hits theaters July 21.
