“Dunkirk”, The first single from Harry Styles is more than a good cover letter: it is the demonstration of all the talent that the artist encloses and that perhaps until the moment we had not been able to see at his maximum expression.
It's true that in One Direction he gave us a lot, but we know Harry that the style of the British band - a style we love, by the way - did not end up being his at all. That's why we are so excited about this new stage as a solo artist and that's why we know that big things are coming.
Not only in the world of music. In a few months, Harry Styles will also premiere in the world of cinema with 'Dunkirk', the latest film by Christopher Nolan, one of the most acclaimed directors of recent times. Harry is one of the protagonists of the film ... And some have imagined something else for 'Dunkirk' and Harry. This is how the trailer would be with that 'Sign of the times' putting music on it.
The truth is that it can not be more perfect. 'Sign of the times' seems made for 'Dunkirk', as if Harry had found the inspiration to create the song on the set of one of the films of the year.
The lyrics closely resemble the context we find in 'Dunkirk' and the melody may not be more appropriate for the images we see in this trailer that, of course, has been created by a fan of the artist.
#3 A great release date: June 21, 2017
With a filmography composed of some of the most ambitious mainstream films of this century (so far), Christopher Nolan has cultivated a reputation for himself that few other filmmakers have nowadays. Through his work on The Dark Knight trilogy or successful blockbuster films like Inception, Nolan’s the kind of rare director in the industry right now capable of creating original, big-budget films that still manage to draw in large audiences, based purely on his name recognition. That kind of widespread appeal only looks to continue with the release of Dunkirk this summer. The film marks Nolan’s first foray into a wartime situation onscreen, as he works to bring one of the more miraculous stories from World War II to life in theaters. Less traditional than a typical war film, the movie will depict the events of the Miracle of Dunkirk/Operation Dynamo, a legendary evacuation planned by the British, which saved the lives of over 300,000 allied troops trapped in Dunkirk by the Nazis.
In case the anticipation surrounding Dunkirk wasn’t enough already, the film also has a prime end of July release date. Very little footage from the film has been released so far, but a new report from Alberta Film Ratings indicates that a brand new trailer for Dunkirk is on its way. The trailer has been rated PG already, is stated as being 2 minutes and 25 seconds long, and is expected to be released sometime next week, which makes sense with how much time there still is before Dunkirk is officially released.
Now, there was some cause for concern from fans of Nolan’s when Dunkirk was confirmed to be rated PG-13, which led many to think that the filmmaker wouldn’t be able to accurately capture the sense of horror and tension of war. But then Nolan came out and made it very clear that he doesn’t consider Dunkirk to be a “war movie” either, even despite its wartime setting and situations.
In addition to the sheer scope of the story itself, Nolan is going out of his way to give Dunkirk as real and visceral a feel as possible, which means using IMAX cameras more than they ever have been before, in often revolutionary ways. So visually, Dunkirk has all the makings of being the breakout summer hit that so many moviegoers and film buffs are predicting it to be, having popped onto many of the most-anticipated films of the year lists, now all that’s left to be seen is if its story and themes manage to live up to the technical, visual precision that the filmmaker brings to all of his work.
Christopher Nolan doesn’t do things halfway. When Heath Ledger’s Joker blows up a hospital in The Dark Knight, the filmmaker found an actual building his crew could demolish in Chicago. So for Nolan’s movie about the 1940 evacuation of Dunkirk, France — a crucial moment in World War II when more than 300,000 cornered Allied soldiers retreated safely across the English Channel — the typical war-story treatment wasn’t going to do.
