Christopher Nolan may very well be one of today’s most recognized filmmakers in the business. Between his work in grounding the character and world of Batman and his Dark Knight Trilogy, and his work in making mainstream substantive films like Inception and The Prestige, he’s made a name for himself as one of the most interesting voices in the business.

His last film, Interstellar saw him venture into the realm of space and time. With each passing movie, it seemed he was moving further and further into the abstract realm. However, with his new upcoming film, Dunkirk, he seems poised to bring things back to reality. The first trailer was an interesting, if not unfocused look at an interesting historical event, but if you were like me, you were left wanting a lot more.


Luckily for us, it sounds like we’ll be getting that all too soon. In a new trailer teaser from Warner Bros, the studio teases that the new trailer for the film will hit this coming Friday (May 5), at 9am PT.

Hopefully this time around, we’ll get something with better focus on plot and character, rather than tone and style. However, those who are hoping for a war film in the vein of Saving Private Ryan may end up being disappointed. First off, this film is only rated PG-13, and as such, there won’t be scenes of intense carnage. Additionally, Nolan stated in the past that Dunkirk isn’t a war film. First and foremost, it’s a suspense film, which is surprising given the epic scope it has.

Perhaps with this new upcoming trailer, that aspect will come across better. As it stands, it looks more like a less violent war film — one that seems to retread very common World War II territory we’re accustomed to seeing.

Do you think this new trailer will help Dunkirk set itself apart? Let us know your thoughts down below!

Dunkirk hits theaters on July 21, 2017.
