Just yesterday, Warner Bros. released a new trailer teaser for Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan’s upcoming World War II epic starring Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy. Today, they’ve released another brief teaser.
Shot on large format 65MM film, Dunkirk tells the story of survival and despair based on the true events of the evacuation of Dunkirk after allied forces were surrounded by the German army during World War II.
