If you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat for more footage from Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated World War II action-thriller Dunkirk then you may be in luck when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters later this month. Did we mention this won’t be a trailer but rather seven minutes of glorious Nolan-directed epicness? We probably should.
The folks over at /Film have reported that Warner Bros. is including a seven-minute long prologue for Dunkirk in front of 70mm IMAX 2D screenings of Rogue One. If you’re lucky enough to have scored tickets to one of these screenings, you’re certainly going to be in for a treat with both the Dunkirk preview and seeing Rogue One in beautiful 70mm IMAX.
Written and directed by Nolan, Dunkirk stars Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Harry Styles, Cillian Murphy, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden, Barry Keoghan, and Tom Glynn-Carney. The upcoming film was shot entirely on IMAX 65mm film and 65mm large-format photography and is pretty much guaranteed to provide nothing but the most pleasant viewing experience.
Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, they face what seems to be an impossible situation as the enemy begins closing in. If that doesn’t sound intense to you, then I don’t know what is. I’m beyond psyched to see what Nolan has done with this film.

Paramount taps ‘Fargo’ creator Noah Hawley to write, direct next installment in ‘Star Trek’ series
Fresh off the release of his feature directorial debut Lucy in the Sky last month, Noah Hawley has been set to write and direct the upcoming next installment in the Star Trek franchise, according to Deadline.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and the rest of the principal cast are all expected to return for Star Trek 4, which Hawley will also produce for his 26 Keys banner along with JJ Abrams and Bad Robot.
The film is not in any way related to the R-rated spinoff Abrams and Quentin Tarantino have been developing with writer Mark L. Smith and will serve as a direct sequel to 2016’s Star Trek Beyond.
S.J. Clarkson had been attached to direct Star Trek 4 as recently as last year and was poised to become the first woman to helm a film in the sci-fi series but reportedly parted ways with the project after development stalled in mid-2018.
Hawley — perhaps best known for his work on FX series such as Fargo and Legion — recently made his directorial debut with the Natalie Portman-led drama Lucy in the Sky, which tanked at the domestic box office amid harsh reviews from critics.
Production on Star Trek 4 is expected to get underway in 2020.
