Personal Quote:

[on releasing Dunkirk (2017) in the summer] It's very exciting to be putting something different out to the audience, but it's also very frightening. It feels like it raises the stakes for the success of the film. It feels like we're carrying a bit more than we realized going into it in terms of what movies can work or can't work in the summer.
