Dunkirk brings in $5.5 million in Thursday previews

"Dunkirk" stars Harry Styles, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and Mark Rylance. Suspenseful without being over dramatic, realistic without being violent, and breathtaking without the flashier CGI of most blockbusters, this is a masterful film that will rank with all-time great war movies. Stephen is happy, as he so often is, about some new music he loves from Phoebe Bridgers, an artist he's been talking up since at least January. And, luckily, I have the chance to tell all of you now as well.

Clearly, Harry Styles, who got his start on The X Factor in the United Kingdom and is lead singer of the band One Direction, falls into the "recognizable" category, but D'Arcy wasn't aware he was in the film until arriving to the set. If you've ever wanted some idea of what it feels like to have the world flip upside down and light on fire before you drown, this is the movie for you.

Nolan's somewhat perversely structured screenplay tells three stories, interlocking, laced with flashbacks and revisits to scenes, moments, really, you may not realize are revisits from a new perspective.

Continue with more depictions of the Dunkirk evacuation and other mostly intense recommendations. The picture quality of an IMAX camera paired with 70mm film is the highest you can experience in a theater, not just because of its insane resolution (Nolan's been quoted saying he estimates it as the equivalent of a digital 18K sensor) but because it creates a visceral experience that makes you feel like you were there. There's not much to say to spoil the movie, as the broad strokes of the story largely plays out as historical fact. Teenage heartthrob, Harry Styles is making his Hollywood movie debut with this film and does justice to the role of Alex. Only Mark Rylance, playing a civilian boat captain, gets to truly articulate the movie's overall themes of service to country and resilience in the face of impossible odds. Tom Hardy takes the lead here as a Royal Air Force Spitfire pilot, engaged in a dogfight with the German Messerschmitts. The visuals are absolutely spectacular.

Let's take a look at those eight films that have helped to cement Nolan's reputation over the years in order of favorable reviews and influence. He, cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema and Hans Bjerno, the film's director of aerial photography, provide myriad powerhouse images. And if you want more information about how Nolan filmed Dunkirk, head to YouTube. Every decision he made is in service of immersing the viewer in this experience, and it's that immersion that provides the emotional connection to the characters.

Christopher Nolan, returning after giving blockbuster Interstellar, leaves you spellbound with his astonishing direction. Dunkirk nails it on all fronts.
