Social media reactions for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming World War II survival-thriller Dunkirk are in, and the verdict is it’s another epic piece of filmmaking from the fan-favorite auteur.

After launching into the stratosphere with the overwhelming success of The Dark Knight, Nolan became one of the few directors working today who can sell any project with his name alone. Some of his movies have proven to be divisive (see: Interstellar), but all of his efforts in the last decade plus have earned widely positive reviews and done well at the box office. Nolan’s involvement with a new film is enough reason for many to look forward to it, which is why Dunkirk was on so many most anticipated lists at the beginning of the year.
 The marketing campaign has sold audiences on an unrelenting and tense ride, depicting the real-life rescue mission to save 400,000 soldiers stranded on a beach. Always one with an ambitious eye, Nolan looked to tackle three different points of view (air, land, and water) in under two hours of screen time. Like most of his movies, Nolan was also painting on a large canvas, making great use of the IMAX format and practical effects to place viewers back in WWII. Based on the trailers, Dunkirk looked to be a must-see on the big screen for the spectacle alone, but moviegoers will be pleased to hear the quality of the film is up to Nolan’s high standards.
