Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk receives PG-13 rating for “intense war experience”

15 March 2017 1:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christopher Nolan’s upcoming WWII drama Dunkirk has received a PG-13 rating in the Us.

Every new Christopher Nolan film is an event; the critically praised English director with a loyal fan base has been bringing his unique brand of ambitious blockbusters to cinemas for quite some time now.

With 2014’s Interstellar wowing many and baffling plenty more, fans are eager to see how he handles the more grounded affair of a World War II drama.

Dunkirk tells the story of the Dunkirk evacuation where allied soldiers were trapped on a beach, surrounded by Nazi soldiers.

The stakes are certainly there for Nolan to work his magic, and along with an all star cast that includes Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh, and Mark Rylance, Dunkirk has seemingly all the ingredients to be another hit for the director.

And now we know the age rating for the epic war thriller, »

Christopher Nolan discusses Dunkirk’s narrative structure and the significance of the battle

1 March 2017 4:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christopher Nolan is pretty much the reigning modern-day king regarding captivating yet highly complex storytelling, a trademark that is returning for this summer’s hotly anticipated World War II epic Dunkirk. Despite looking relatively straightforward in its first trailer [watch it here], we should have known the director would have some tricks up his sleeve.

Speaking about the narrative structure to Première, Nolan stated: “The film is told from three points of view. The air (planes), the land (on the beach) and the sea (the evacuation by the navy). For the soldiers who embarked in the conflict, the events took place on different temporalities. On land, some stayed one week stuck on the beach. On the water, the events lasted a maximum day; and if you were flying to Dunkirk, the British spitfires would carry an hour of fuel. To mingle these different versions of history, one had to mix the temporal strata. »

Nolan Explains Simple Yet Complicated Dunkirk Plot Structure

28 February 2017 3:33 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This summer will bring its fair share of superheroes, sequels and remakes, as has been par for the course over the past few decades, but fans will also get a new Christopher Nolan movie with the filmmaker's highly-anticipated Dunkirk. Aside from a new poster for this WWII action-thriller in December and a trailer in August, we haven't seen much from this release slated to hit theaters nationwide on July 21. Today, we have some plot details from director Christopher Nolan, who teases that the story is both both more simple and much more complex than you might think.

When compared to the intricate plot lines of his films such as Memento, Inception and Interstellar, a WWII movie may seem fairly straight-forward for writer-director Christopher Nolan. Premiere caught up with Nolan, who explains that isn't exactly the case, teasing his simple story told in a very complex way. Here's what the filmmaker had to say. »

Christopher Nolan Inspired by Robert Bresson and Silent Films for ‘Dunkirk,’ Which Has “Little Dialogue”

28 February 2017 9:55 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We’re less than half-a-year away from Christopher Nolan‘s Dunkirk, one of our most-anticipated summer studio films (alongside Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, of course), and one of our biggest questions is how (or if) his approach to a period epic will feel different than his recent features. Inspired by Operation Dynamo, a miracle of a mission in 1940 where nearly 340,000 Allied troops were rescued after being trapped by the Nazis in this northern area of France, more details have now arrived.

“I spent a lot of time reviewing the silent films for crowd scenes –the way extras move, evolve, how the space is staged and how the cameras capture it, the views used,” Nolan tells Premiere Magazine. The director revealed that he brushed up on silent films such as Intolerance, Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, and Greed, as well as the films of Robert Bresson (notably Pickpocket and A Man Escaped, »

You see events very much through his eyes,” said Nolan about the character of Tommy. “We want to put the audience on that beach, put them on a boat heading over to Dunkirk, put them in the cockpit of a Spitfire. That’s the ambition and I’m bringing all my experience in filmmaking to bear trying to achieve it.”

20 new TV shows to watch in 2017

Louisa Mellor Kirsten Howard Mar 16, 2017

These are the new TV shows to look out for this year, from American Gods to Mindhunter...

2017 is in full swing. We've passed the point where every other ad slogan you see is screaming about the possibilities of a new you. A slimmer, happier, more accomplished you, one free of flab and toxins and bad habits. That fraudulent notion of the detox was everywhere, promising a simultaneously cleanse of both your soul and your colon.

There is still one useful place you can apply the insidious ‘detox’, however: TV viewing.

A combination of end-of-year exhaustion, festivities and time off work can often lead to weakness of resolve when it comes to television. Turkey comas and lunchtime drinking made us susceptible to the sort »
