Dunkirk


 

If you happen to catch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in the 2D 70MM IMAX presentation this holiday season, you might be in for an extra treat. These very particular screenings will be getting a seven-minute prologue sequence for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk before the start of the feature.

At this time it’s known that the footage will only be included in certain theaters, specifically, 70mm IMAX locations. That means only 15 theaters throughout North America will have the capabilities Nolan insists on to show his footage of Dunkirk. Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One movie was not shot using IMAX’s signature 70mm film cameras, LucasFilm and Disney are presenting the film in a re-done format on over a dozen theaters across the country.

Dunkirk

Warner Bros. and IMAX have yet to officially confirm the reports but it’s of note to mention that previews for The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises were screened before other IMAX films (I Am Legend and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) in theaters ahead of their releases, and with Interstellar Nolan rewarded theaters still equipped to project on film with early releases. So it is possible that all IMAX presentations (film or otherwise) could have the prologue attached, or at the very least a new trailer.

Christopher Nolan shot key sequences of Dunkirk using 15 perf 65mm IMAX cameras. When seeing these sequences projected on a true IMAX screen it will expand and deliver an unprecedented clarity that will make for a truly immersive experience for the audience. On Dunkirk, Nolan was able to shoot 100 minutes of IMAX material.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk, which is written and directed by Nolan, stars Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, James D’Arcy, Harry Styles and Jack Lowden, and will be released in theaters on July 21, 2017, but there are rumors that earlier screenings for the 35mm and 70mm presentations will start on July 19th.
