DUNKIRK Gets A 70MM Widescreen Formatted Limited Release As Tickets Go On Sale


Adding to the summer moviegoing fervor as of yesterday's announcement, Christopher Nolan period war epic, Dunkirk, is now looking to leave a mark this season at the box office with a milestone 70MM widescreen presentation at select theaters. Much of the film was captured on IMAX in high-resolution 2D lensing to embolden greater scope and breathtaking image quality during production, and apparently its standing as one of Fandango's top five highly-anticipated summer titles has further driven the incentive some.
“I have been a longtime proponent of film – particularly the IMAX film format – as a storytelling medium,” said Christopher Nolan. “The immersive quality of the image is second to none, drawing the audience into the action in the most intense way possible.”
100 standard 70mm installations plus 31 70mm Imax theaters is the current expected count thusfar. Official tickets and location details for the 70mm premiere are available now at the official Dunkirk website with more info on the film's regular rollout to be published this Friday. Dunkirk is slated for a July 21 release from Warner Bros. Pictures.
From filmmaker Christopher Nolan (“Interstellar,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) comes the epic action thriller “Dunkirk.” 
Nolan directed “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. The film was produced by Emma Thomas and Nolan, with Jake Myers serving as executive producer. 
“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 an impossible situation as the enemy closes in. 
“Dunkirk” features a multigenerational ensemble cast, including Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.
