Christopher Nolan’s hotly-anticipated feature film Dunkirk, is to screen in IMAX 70mm 2D film at the Science Museum on its worldwide opening weekend.
The Science Museum, one of only three venues in the UK showing Nolan’s epic cinematic event in the largest commercial film format, will screen the film in IMAX 70mm 2D film. IMAX 70mm film projection combines the brightest, clearest images at almost 10 times the resolution of standard 35mm film projection with specially created sound for a high-quality viewing experience.
Nolan has often used IMAX film and for Dunkirk, more footage was shot on IMAX film than in any other Nolan film, with extensive use of IMAX cameras in an innovative hand-held capacity.
The film is relates the events in the Second World War when hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces in Dunkirk.
The film’s cast includes Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.
The creative team on Dunkirk included director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema, production designer Nathan Crowley, editor Lee Smith, costume designer Jeffrey Kurland and visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson. The music was composed by Hans Zimmer.
Dunkirk screens at the Science Museum from 21 July 2017.
