A new trailer for Christopher Nolan's World War II drama "Dunkirk" is here and it looks incredibly tense, with soldiers stranded on the beach and facing overwhelming firepower -- and Harry Styles nearly drowning! (If Nolan kills off the former One Direction star, we will never hear the end of it!)
"Dunkirk" tells the real-life story of how civilians rushed in to save 400,000 stranded Allied soldiers during one of the fiercest battles of the war.
In voiceover we hear (we assume) Kenneth Branagh (who plays a grim-faced naval commander) say: "What has happened is a colossal military disaster... we shall go on to the end. We shall never surrender."
We also get good glimpses of "Bridge of Spies" Oscar winner Mark Rylance, who's one of the civilians who pilot their boats into the war zone to rescue stranded troops, and Cillian Murphy as one of the sailors he rescues, who then refuses to go back to the battle lines.
In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated. Read More
