Great poster but why the f*ck is Harry styles in this!!
That took me by surprise when I first heard about it too. I won't judge until I've actually seen him "act" though... he could be pretty decent, but on the other hand his acting could be as bad as his music. :LOL:

Ive literally just read it

After you posted the poster I wondered who was in it because I could only remember hardy and then I read that ridicolus news. It's actually put me off! I hate him

If he's literally in a couple of scenes then fine and hopefully he gets shot in the head fast. But this news could ruin the whole film for me and I've been looking forward to it for a while

Did you want to take a bet now that it won't be in the same league as the 1950's classic.....

Looks Grimm and chilling. Looking forward to it

Only noticed styles in 2 scenes and one looked like he was drowning so my wish may come true. Anyway looks well made

Never bother googling history because you can bet 100% of the time the film you are going to see will bare very little resemblance to what actually happened. As I always say if you want to know about the event watch a documentary......

I got a chance to see the special IMAX preview of this last night. It was good, but not nearly as good as the IMAX previews from Dark Knight or even the Dark Knight Rises. I think because each of the Dark Knight previews could have been a short film as they were relatively self-contained with a beginning and an end. Dunkirk’s preview had a lot of different characters running around with lots of plot already going on too, so it wasn’t as easy to follow what was actually happening.

But the main reason why you’d want to see this preview is to see some of the scope Dunkirk will offer in IMAX. The overall direction of the preview was solid and you definitely felt the scale of the naval and aerial ships/planes. There wasn’t much action in the preview, but they did a good job trying to building up tension and intrigue. This is mostly because of the score, which climaxes in a very Inception like way. The only notable actors I saw in the preview were Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh. The ending stinger was pretty interesting too.

Overall, I’m looking forward to Dunkirk and the preview is worth a special watch if you’re a fan of Nolan or war movies.

I saw it too. Even though it was only 5 minutes it was pretty suspenseful and I was hooked. That last shot has definitely whetted my appetite for release day.

All I hoping is that we finally get a blu-ray restored release of the 1958 film
