Dunkirk becomes the highest grossing WWII film of all time

12 September 2017 11:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dunkirk has become the highest grossing WWII movie in history.

Christopher Nolan’s war drama about the evacuation of troops from Dunkirk beach has been much applauded and casually doing its thing at the box office – outperforming expectations in many markets.

Nolan’s film may have, however, just grabbed its biggest claim to fame yet, in beating out Saving Private Ryan to become the highest grossing WWII movie ever.

Dunkirk now sits at $493 million worldwide, which, thanks to this past weekend’s takings in locations like China, now places it ahead of Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan, sitting at $481.8 million.

While this is quite the achievement for Dunkirk, Saving Private Ryan still claims the top spot in the Us with $216 million to Dunkirk’s $183 million. It’s very unlikely that Dunkirk will reach that number unless Nolan’s movie plays for many months to come thanks to awards recognition. »

Dunkirk makes a splash at China’s box office

5 September 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dunkirk has made its debut at China’s box office, bringing in significant numbers.

The acclaimed WWII drama by Christopher Nolan has been performing well above expectations in various markets around the world. This includes $180 million in the Us.

Having to sit out the China summer blackout like all western films, Dunkirk has at last been able to make its debut in the world’s second biggest movie market, bringing in $30 million this past weekend.

Winning the weekend on its debut, this is a solid opening for Nolan’s latest effort in China, a market he has been historically popular in. The $30 million debut, however, is behind Nolan’s previous effort Interstellar ($42.6 million), but due to Dunkirk’s nature as a WWII drama outside the Pacific theater, this isn’t all that surprising.

WB certainly isn’t down on the numbers, noting that for an artful Hollywood drama this is indeed a solid showing, »

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk crosses $400 million worldwide

29 August 2017 12:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dunkirk has moved past the $400 million milestone at the worldwide box office.

Christopher Nolan’s WWII drama, Dunkirk, has been over performing at the box office this summer, accumulating $172 million at the U.S. box office, and in the process making Christopher Nolan the fifth highest grossing director of all time.

This tidy sum, which should end up somewhere around the $185 million mark, has helped Dunkirk accumulate a very tidy $412 million across all territories. Dunkirk is still to be released in big markets like China and Japan, so that number will climb further still.

Depending on how kindly China take to the picture, the film could possibly pass the $500 million mark as well.

Nowhere has Dunkirk thrived more than in the U.K., however, with the movie about the evacuation of over 300,000 men from a French beach, now sitting at $63 million.

This is an impressive number indeed and means that »

29 August 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The free event will take place on Sunday, September 10 and will be introduced by Piers Handling, Director and CEO of Tiff, followed by a conversation between the director/writer/producer Nolan and Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of Tiff.

We stand in awe of all he has achieved since, and are proud to welcome him back to Toronto,” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of Tiff. “The Ontario Place Cinesphere is the perfect place to do it. This cinema on Toronto’s waterfront opened in 1971 as IMAX’s first permanent home.

Will anyone take Best Director from Christopher Nolan?

28 August 2017 9:07 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here’s an interesting turn in the Oscar race. After years of being ignored and snubbed in the Best Director field, there’s a strong chance that Christopher Nolan will be finally cited in the category for his work making Dunkirk. In fact, it’s hard to argue that at the moment, he’s the frontrunner to win the whole thing. Nolan has built up a reputation as one of the best filmmakers in the business, so he’s certainly overdue for a nomination. The Academy has never seen fit to vote for him in this one particular category. Some of it has been due to the competition. Some of it has been due to the films he’s made. Some of it is just plain bad luck. This year, however, he has a movie that’s the easiest sell to voters yet. Could that change the math for him? »

Christopher Nolan flying to China to support Dunkirk release

17 August 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christopher Nolan is jetting off to China to the support the release of Dunkirk.

The WWII drama has been performing above expectations during its run so far, having accumulated $366 million worldwide, including $156.3 million in the Us, and a mighty $58 million in the UK.

However, Nolan’s latest has yet to be released in China, the second biggest market in the world. The director has a big following in the country and he will be hoping that can translate into big numbers for his critically acclaimed feature.

The director is set to visit Beijing, and rumours of his visit to the city have been met with “considerable fan excitement” on Chinese social media according to Warner Bros. (via THR).

Nolan will be attending a press conference in the Chinese capital city on August 21, which will then be followed by the premiere of Dunkirk on August 22.

This will be Nolan’s first trip to the capital, »

Dunkirk becomes second highest grosser of 2017 at UK box office, beating Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

16 August 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dunkirk has sailed into second position at the UK box office for 2017, overcoming some serious competition on the way.

We reported earlier in the month that Dunkirk had out earned Spider-Man:  Homecoming, Wonder Woman, and Logan at the UK box office. But now it can add another impressive achievement to its name, having also beaten out Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Dunkirk is now the second highest grossing film of the year in the UK, having earned a better than expected $58.1 million, which puts it comfortably ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, a film that sits in fourth place with $53 million.

Dunkirk has also moved past Despicable Me 3’s now third place tally of $55 million.

Dunkirk dropped 43% this past weekend, but it was enough to top the box office charts for an impressive fourth weekend in a row. This is a feat that even films like »

Dunkirk beats Wonder Woman and Spider-Man: Homecoming at the UK box office

8 August 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dunkirk has managed to earn more money at the UK box office than both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Wonder Woman.

This year’s box office has been dominated by superhero behemoths and Disney family movies, not unlike most years in recent memory.

The picture isn’t that different in the UK, with Beauty and the Beast sitting at the top of the year’s highest grossing films, ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 in second.

But in news that will please fans of Christopher Nolan and more adult orientated dramas, Dunkirk has found itself at number eight in the list, and rising.

Having accumulated $35.4 million as of late July, this means that the WWII drama has out earned superhero blockbusters Wonder Woman ($28.9 million, Logan ($29.1 million), and Spider-Man: Homecoming ($31.8 million).

This is quite the achievement and speaks to Nolan’s popularity in the country, the film’s critical success, and the »

Dunkirk has already beaten Interstellar’s total UK box office

1 August 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dunkirk has already out earned Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s previous blockbuster release, at the UK box office.

Bringing in a total of $35.4 million in Nolan’s home territory, Dunkirk has flown past Interstellar’s grand total of $31.3 million in just ten days.

Dunkirk was always going to do relatively well in the UK, the tale of the evacuation of mostly British soldiers during WWII was bound to strike a nerve, and add that to Nolan’s enormous popularity as a filmmaker, and great reviews, we shouldn’t be too surprised to see it doing well.

Dunkirk should be on track for a pretty hefty figure in the territory, with most movies opening to similar numbers going on to make between $40 million and $60 million.

The film is performing better than expected over in the Us as well, having already brought in $101 million. Dunkirk’s international total sits at £232.8 million, still some way off Interstellar’s $675 million. »

Christopher Nolan bans very specific items on set, according to Dunkirk stars Mark Rylance and Barry Keoghan

31 July 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christopher Nolan is as enigmatic as he is talented. From the way he shows up to every set in a suit, his sometimes mysterious marketing for his films, to the inspired/ controversial casting choices he continually makes: Nolan is in a league of his own in many ways. Which is why it comes as no surprise that the visionary director would have more than a few quirks on set. Dunkirk stars Mark Rylance and Barry Keoghan recently spoke with the Independent about Nolan’s approach to filmmaking, and a few of his more unique rules on set…

“He does things like he doesn’t like having chairs on set for actors or bottles of water; he’s very particular”, said Rylance, with Keoghan adding: “They’re distractions – the noise of [the bottles], they’re like toys almost, playing around with toys. [The lack of chairs, meanwhile] keeps you on your toes, literally”.

For a director as seemingly intense as Christopher Nolan, »

Dunkirk: Interview with Costume Designer Jeffrey Kurland

30 July 2017 11:56 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Amongst staggering aural and visual assault, perhaps one of the quietest aspects of Dunkirk (2017, directed by Christopher Nolan) are its costumes – and this is to its credit. Dunkirk is the type of film that requires you to engage quickly with everything you see on screen. Jeffrey Kurland’s costume design is masterful in this regard. A sea of subtly differentiated green and brown with the pop of naval uniforms and briefly glimpsed civilian wear. This is 1940 at its most spare and rudimentary.

Here, Jeffrey Kurland chats exclusively to Clothes on Film about his process for creating the world of Dunkirk:

Spoilers Throughout

Clothes on Film: How did you go about researching the many uniforms seen in the film?

Jeffrey Kurland: As I normally would do. In the beginning it’s kind of a one man job. I trawl the internet, I go to libraries – I actually have my own library I use. »
