As Mamo gets near the end of its first season, we take in the formal mastery of DUNKIRK while wondering aloud: just white people? Really? And at least one of the Matts is a pretty hefty fan of GAME OF THRONES but greets this CONFEDERATE news with a hefty: really, white people? Really?
Many of the posters for Christopher Nolan’s war-rescue picture Dunkirk have been of the super-wide banner variety. Here is a classic vertical design (and nothing gives a vertical impression than a sailboat) that emphasizes the scope and chaos through depth of field rather than panorama. There are a lot of elements and things to see here, shadows of air planes, fishermen working frantically, soldiers drowning in the water, or floating on objects. The fire offers a few flashes of colour in an otherwise desaturated ‘grim seas’ palette. It is also noteworthy that the IMAX specialty releases of films tend to be a bit more adventurous with their poster designs, probably because they are not distributed as widely.
The summer season kicks off in just three weeks and the Boys Of Summer (trademark pending) are back to pick the hits and misses of the forthcoming box office season!
Billed as an ‘announcement,’ but lets call it a teaser as Christopher Nolan’s World War II rescue picture, Dunkirk does not release until July 2017. Shot on 70mm, with all the production value and weight a film can muster, I am excited that Warner Brothers keeps giving him money to make whatever movie he pleases. Enjoy the rhythm and the photography of this handsomely cut teaser trailer.
