Christopher Nolan’s new film, Dunkirk, will arrive in theatres on July 21, but sensing an opportunity, Warner Bros allowed the few critics who have seen the film to post comments about it on the social media.
The first screening for the war movie was held over the weekend, and the social media embargo was lifted soon after. The reactions, as can be expected from a film by the director of the Dark Knight trilogy, Inception and Interstellar, are ecstatic.
“Christopher Nolan is one of the great filmmakers of our time,” tweeted critic Eric Davis.

30 seconds in, Nolan once again delivers a spectacular edge-of-your-seat opening sequence. And then it just keeps upping the tension— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) July 10, 2017
From direction to editing to cinematography to score, w/ #Dunkirk Christopher Nolan proves he is one of the great filmmakers of our time— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) July 10, 2017
DUNKIRK is very suspenseful. My palms were sweaty almost the entire film. Not my favorite from Nolan, but still a home run. pic.twitter.com/3btS9U28Yy— Brandon Norwood (@bwood0824) July 10, 2017
DUNKIRK is fantastic. Truly thrilling from first to last second. A heartbreaking, heart-pounding, nail-biting offering. Nolan fans, rejoice.— Anna Klassen (@AnnaJKlassen) July 10, 2017
I have seen #Dunkirk and it is a triumph: beautifully filmed, deeply moving, strong turns all round (and yes, that includes Harry Styles)— Anna Smith (@annasmithjourno) July 10, 2017
Dunkirk is thrilling, beautiful & a must in 70mm IMAX - but it's also hard to ignore that it has zero distinctive personalities/characters.— (((Eric Eisenberg))) (@eeisenberg) July 10, 2017
DUNKIRK: intense! 3 intercutting stories on 3 time frames. Almost a silent film, w/ incredible score. May be divisive. I LOVED. See 70mm! pic.twitter.com/E6Xga21Skm— Alicia Malone (@aliciamalone) July 10, 2017
Can't wait to review "Dunkirk,' a mix of modern storytelling (interwoven timeframes), classic filmmaking (real Spitfire dogfights) #Dunkirk— Stephen Whitty (@StephenWhitty) July 10, 2017
