With Nolan’s film on the horizon, the story of DUNKIRK has not been told in modern cinema since Norman’s 1958 black-and-white version. Coincidentally, DUNKIRK (1958) stars the late Richard Attenborough as a businessman, who sailed his boat from England to Dunkirk to help rescue British and French soldiers trapped on the beaches; his grandson Will Attenborough features in Nolan’s DUNKIRK, where he plays Royal Navy Second Lieutenant Howe.
With the re-release into UK cinemas, we have been sent some never seen before behind the scenes images of the 1958 classic as well as some new images from the film.
Not only that, you can buy tickets for the premiere of the re-release at Camber Sands on the 20 and 21st of September, 2017.
There are some amazing images from the making of the film. From the problems that the secretaries had to put up with to the more lighter moments from making the film.
DUNKIRK follows the dramatic events leading up to Operation Dynamo, where upon the British Army attempted to rescue fellow soldiers and allied troops from Nazi occupied France. Seen from the dual perspectives of a jaded journalist in search of propaganda and a weary soldier desperately trying to give his troop some hope, Dunkirk never shies away from the brutality of war and the bravery of its soldiers.
Watch it on the beaches of Camber Sands on 20th & 21st September 2017.
