Warner Bros. today, released the first teaser trailer of one of the highly anticipated films of the decade, Christopher Nolan’s, Dunkirk.


Dunkirk, as reported, is based on the remarkable true story of allied and British soldiers’s survival and evacuation, who were enclosed and annihilated by German forces, during World War II, in the beach of Dunkirk, France in 1940. The cast includes Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, academy award winner – Mark Rylance, and Harry Styles in acting debut.

Christopher Nolan, is a film enthusiast and a believer of film and practical effects. The film is being shot in IMAX 65 mm and large format 65 mm cameras. It is slated for release on 21st July, 2017.
More importantly, Chris Nolan, is been speculated to have crashed a real World War II plane for the movie, considered as one of the biggest stunts in history of cinema, or at least in his career. An auteur filmmaker, who prefers to capture everything possible in camera to special/visual effects, it does not come as surprise for his followers.

Today, 20th July’16, marks the 4th anniversary of ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’
What Nolan siblings have accomplished through ‘Batman’ trilogy is phenomenal and unprecedented. The siblings transformed the inherent characteristics and dynamics of ‘Batman’ franchise.

Until, Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan were entrusted by the studio, Warner Bros for renaissance of ‘Batman’, the characterization was frivolous. It does not necessarily mean that, the Pre – Nolan directed films were inferior. But, they catered to an exclusive segment.

Nolan siblings created a universe for Batman, and went to the origins of the characters. Thus, the characters became more organic, intense and purposeful. The trilogy itself was an evolution. Reportedly, even people who were not fond of comic characters, enthusiastically watched the series, beginning from ‘Batman Begins’ (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), and concluding installment ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (2012) multiple times.

Rationale: #Joker was never a villan nor a hero. He intended to restore balance in #Gotham city as he believed, goodness in abundance would eventually lead to destruction. He was a symbol more than #Batman, and was never really killed by Batman either, he chose to die once. He exists spiritually and would surface, when its needed.

Actor: #HeathLedger [ Posthumously received Oscar for best performance in a supporting role for Joker. In 2016, a documentary reveled the self written notes by Heath Ledger himself on how did the character take over him. He locked himself in a room and didn’t come out for months even before the shoot started. He enacted the character in front of the mirror, gradually got obsessed, and became the character for real. Even Nolan mentioned that he was calm throughout the production and always pondering about the character, he lived as Joker on and off the set. Eventually, obsession led to his biological death. He does exist spiritually among many of us]
