Were you blown away by the engrossing and gritty War for the Planet of the Apes this weekend? Well we've got more extraordinary big screen spectacle for you this week in the form of Christopher Nolan's World War II epic Dunkirk. Here's why you can't miss it.
It's an extraordinary true story brought to life
The film dramatises the remarkable Operation Dynamo, a joint civilian-military operation that rescued Allied troops from the beaches of Dunkirk in May and June 1940. It was one of the most important events of World War II and now you can watch it unfold from the comfort of your cinema seat.
It's Christopher Nolan's first fact-based movie
One of Hollywood's most influential directors, Nolan has turned his hand to everything from superhero blockbusters (his Dark Knight trilogy) to outer-space extravaganzas (Interstellar). However, this is the first time he's turned his visual prowess and skill with A-list stars to a real-life event. The thought of the Inception director dramatising such a remarkable interlude in human history is enough to get everyone excited.
There's an A-list cast
Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh play the characters on land, sea and air, the kind of muscular acting talent that demands to be seen on the biggest screen possible.
Yes, the former One Directioner makes his movie debut as soldier Alex, so if you're curious to discover his acting chops (already praised in pre-release buzz for the film), now's your chance.
Nolan is one of cinema's greatest contemporary innovators, having shot with IMAX cameras since 2008's The Dark Knight.
Dunkirk is no different and promises to show off the immersive, extraordinary qualities of the format like few other movies do.
Don't just watch Nolan's movie: be an active part of the drama and experience it in IMAX.
