Harry Styles in Dunkirk

Harry Styles swigs on set

Dunkirk? If it’s ringing bells from your A-Level history lessons, you’re half way to understanding the plot of Christopher Nolan’s latest blockbuster, Dunkirk. The silver-screen retelling of the 1940 Dunkirk evacuation is easily one of the biggest films due out in 2017.

It was written by Christopher with Hollywood legend Hans Zimmer putting together the score. If the moody music in The Dark Knight, Pirates of the Caribbean and even The Lion King had you feeling emotional, that’s all down to Hans…

But we know what you’re really interested in. You want to know the cast, the release date and you want to watch a trailer, right? Don’t worry – here’s everything you need to know about Dunkirk so far.

Who ISN’T in Dunkirk?! Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, James D’Arcy and Fionn Whitehead are all starring in the film, but the one to watch is surely Harry Styles - yes, the ex-One Directioner. This is the first time Harry has turned his hand to acting, and he’s already managed to cause a stir even before filming started. Dunkirk is actually the reason behind Harry’s internet-breaking haircut – 1940s soldiers didn’t tend to rock the long locks when in battle. He's meant to be giving an amazing debut performance.   


Release Date
Dunkirk is due out in UK cinemas on July 21st, 2017 – a date that’s been set since September 2015

Unsurprisingly, the cast are filming the majority of the film in Dunkirk, France, before they take over Holland, the UK (ambigious…) and Los Angeles.

The teaser trailer announcement just dropped, and it's tense...

Excited?! We have a feeling you’ll be watching Dunkirk even if you hate war films.

In the mean time, catch up on Harry Styles’ fashion transformation from X Factor to now, and the many reasons we love feminist Tom Hardy.
