When 400,000 men couldn’t get home… home came for them.

From acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy) comes one of the most antcipated films of the year, DUNKIRK.

This epic World War II thriller opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.

The story unfolds on land, sea and air. RAF Spitfires engage the enemy in the skies above the Channel, trying to protect the defenseless men below. Meanwhile, hundreds of small boats manned by both military and civilians are mounting a desperate rescue effort, risking their lives in a race against time to save even a fraction of their army.

DUNKIRK features a multi-generational ensemble cast, including Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy and Academy Award winner Mark Rylance, along with a blistering score from long-time Nolan collaborator Hans Zimmer.

Receiving rave reviews from critics across the world, DUNKIRK is being considered as one of the best World War II dramas of our time and Nolan's finest work of his career.

"Dunkirk the event may have been "a colossal military disaster" according to Churchill, but Dunkirk the movie is a glorious, breathtakingly vivid triumph from a director at the top of his game." THE RADIO TIMES


"Effectively one enormous, stunningly rendered and thunderously intense set-piece stretched to feature-length, Dunkirk thrusts you into a pressure cooker and slams the lid on." EMPIRE MAGAZINE

"Christopher Nolan's epic isn't just the best film of his career, but one of the best war movies in decades." THE MOVIE MINUTE

"This is visceral, big-budget filmmaking that can be called Art. It's also, hands down, the best motion picture of the year so far." ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"Let other directors play with toy soldiers and computer effects. This is big-time, old-school filmmaking. Dunkirk isn't overdone. It's simply done epically." NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

"No war film you've seen before - from Das Boot to Saving Private Ryan to The Thin Red Line - comes close to what Nolan has created here." SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST

"Christopher Nolan's astonishing new film, a retelling of the Allied evacuation of occupied France in 1940, is a work of heart-hammering intensity and grandeur that demands to be seen on the best and biggest screen within reach." THE GUARDIAN
