Rumor: First Teaser of Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ to Go Before ‘Suicide Squad’


The release date for Christopher Nolan‘s next epic, “Dunkirk” is just under a year away, but a teaser for the film may be coming sooner.

The folks over at ScreenCrush have latched on to a rumor that first originated at TrailerTrack. According to them, the first teaser for the film, which has been in production since May, will appear in front of another Warner Bros. feature, “Suicide Squad,” when it releases later this week.

The folks at SC note that the studio has done this in the past, most notably with “Interstellar” and the Batman films.

“Dunkirk,” as is the case with any Nolan project, has garnered buzz.

Nolan wrote the screenplay for the film, which tells the story of the Dunkirk evacuation during Operation Dynamo at the beginning of World War II. The operation would ultimately save around 330,000 Allied soldiers from the surrounding German forces. In addition to directing and writing, Nolan is also producing with Emma Thomas.

The film stars Cillian MurphyMark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy. Newcomers Fionn Whitehead, Jack Lowden, Aneurin Barnard and One Direction crooner Harry Styles also have roles in the film.

Frequent collaborator Hans Zimmer is on board for the score, and Hoyte van Hoytema is on board for cinematography. Van Hoytema, who previously worked with Nolan on “Interstellar,” has certainly been busy as of late. In recent years, Hoytema has worked on films such as “Spectre,” “Let the Right One In,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “The Fighter,” and “Her.” The news about van Hoytema was first reported by The Film Stage.

“Dunkirk” will be the first directorial effort since 2014 by Nolan, who’s known for undertaking massive film projects with big ideas.

“Dunkirk” is slated for a July 21st, 2017 release. The film will be shot in IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film.
