Rarely does a war drama manage to nudge in on a franchise as big as Star Wars, but this is not any old film. Christopher Nolan's upcoming 2017 flick Dunkirk, an expected masterpiece set in the middle of World War II, is going to give fans an early taste of what is to come.
Just as long as your sitting in select IMAX theaters during screenings of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The filmmaker created the movie specifically for the biggest of big screens, shooting it in IMAX 70 mm. And, as millions flood into the cinemas for the fantasy adventure film, a certain few will get to see 7 minutes of footage from the Warner Brothers team.

Nolan Well Versed In IMAX Extravaganza
With a cast featuring Tom Hardy, Aneurin Barnard, Cillian Murphy and One Direction's own Harry Styles, Dunkirk is shaping to be another perfect illustration of Christopher Nolan's love affair with IMAX. Using particular scenes for The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, the Brit feels at his best taking the reigns behind large scale in-your-face cinematography.
It wasn't just the caped crusader though that utilized his special skills, going the extra mile with Inception and Interstellar. Following a career that has produced some of the best movies this century like The Prestige, Memento and the Al Pacino and Robin Williams thriller Insomnia, this 7 minute teaser might put Star Wars into some sort of perspective.
