New trailer is out for Dunkirk.

Totally off topic I know, but what the heck.

Might be ok, but I'll miss John Mills and Dickie Attenborough

(Oh yes, and George Cole!)

Looks terrible to me.

Every scene over done and over acted.

Very American

Thought it might be dodgy when I saw that Harry Styles from One Direction was in it.....

Really???
Over done and over acted?
No stiff upper lips eh?
I'll bet the evacuation was an absolute nightmare - and I'll bet there was plenty of overdoing and emotion!!!
I actually think it looks bloody good.
Those CGI Spits were flying a bit close in formation, but the wingovers were reasonably realistic.
The trailer certainly conveys some of the horror and terror...
I hope it'll be exactly the sort of thing to make an x-box generation appreciate what previous ones went through.
I'll certainly be sitting down with Tartarette to watch it.

Taratare,

No I am not looking for stiff upper lip - far from it.

But people under immense stress don't react like this - far from it!

Dramatic music does not play in the background

messages like "hope is a weapon" don't pop up.

It verges on cringworthy in it's American style of storytelling and using scenes as a vehicle to pass messages.

Most of all though it screams fake - I don't believe I'm in Dunkirk I just think I'm watching crap actors following a crap screenplay.

Don't think it will be another 'Saving Private Ryan'

Hate to say it but I think it looks a lot like that other ridiculous film 'Pearl Harbour'.

It's quite amazing that you can totally and completely accurately judge a (most likely) 2 hour+ film by a barely 2 minute-long advert. That's a talent.

I know and thank you for pointing it out.
I'm available for pointing out how crap things are in a variety of fields and for a modest fee will happily judge without due consideration, expertise or even interest in the subject matter.

Ahhh yes, the CGI Mk1 Spitfires that are actually REAL.....

Well, each to their own, but 19 year old Jenny Agutter rather did it for me in The Snow Goose* when it was first released....

* BBC TV movie, made in 1971, based on Paul Gallico's The Snow Goose: A Story of Dunkirk.

MotN, ExRAF has a perfectly valid opinion. A trailer is supposed to advertise and enthuse. If it does not achieve that it fails.

Then as far as pop up captions, I hope these are just part off the trailer.

I liked Warwick Ashton as the Battery SM as epitome of the cool British Army WO.

Just watched the trailer again, and the only Union Flag I could see was the one on the vehicle right at the beginning.

It's the correct way up.

Any chance they'll make the Buchon's engine sound less like a Merlin in the sound track?

Here's a video of the real thing, with the Daimler Benz DB 605 engine:

I'd imagine they will. After all EVERYONE will notice the difference.
