In a live interview in New York a few years back, Paul Thomas Anderson joked, regarding Interstellar, that the audience needs to “get out and support this movie!” You don’t need me to tell you to get out and see a Christopher Nolan movie: though, if you live near a theater showing Dunkirk in 5-perf 70mm, see it there. Movie gear nerds know that Nolan shot this thing with a combination of huge IMAX 70mm and 65mm formats, and seeing a 70 print of a movie shot on those formats is a really special experience.
Ahead of the film, you can stream the entirety of Hans Zimmer’s score on Spotify. Though it’s really cool stuff, I was a little sad to find out that, despite rumors that The Haxan Cloak was involved – some of his music was sampled for the above trailer, and a deleted post from his Facebook page suggested that he collaborated further – this music really appears to be all Zimmer. For Nolan dorks, of course, that means orchestral bliss.
Check it out below, and go see Dunkirk in 70mm!
