Harry Who? Christopher Nolan Oblivious To Harry Styles Fame Before 'Dunkirk'


Christopher Nolan Harry Styles

Apparently, being a thrice Oscar nominated filmmaker does not mean you are always completely up to date with all pop culture developments. In fact, Christopher Nolan barely knew who Harry Styles was before casting him in his first movie 'Dunkirk', and only really heard his name through the kids.

If you were wonderng whether or not the One Direction star won his role solely because he's super famous and would appeal to a young demographic, you'd be mistaken. Christopher Nolan, who wrote and directed forthcoming World War II thriller 'Dunkirk', insists that his focus was only on Harry's proficiency as the character of Alex.

Dunkirk Trailer


In one of the biggest military disasters in British history, 400,000 soldiers found themselves stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk in France in 1940 in the midst of World War II. Their journey was about releasing the allied France from the grip of the Germans, but when they find themselves surrounded by enemy forces, with nowhere left to hide their options become limited. Determined not to surrender to the Nazis, an incredible emergency evacuation begins as bomb after bomb is dropped on the fleeing men. The Royal Air Force and British Navy vessels rush to the aid of their trapped troops, as well as boats from brave civilians, and together they manage to save over 300,000 men from the terrifying attack in Operation Dynamo.

Cillian Murphy Harry Styles Mark Rylance Christopher Nolan

If anyone thought that Harry Styles was cast in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Dunkirk because of his star power rather than his acting skills, then you might be about to be proved wrong. Styles’ co-star in the film, Cillian Murphy, has come out in praise of the singer-turned-actor, saying he’ll be ‘terrific’ in the role.

Harry Styles Tom Hardy Christopher Nolan Mark Rylance Cillian Murphy

On Friday the first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming WWII epic Dunkirk dropped, showing us our first glimpses of the Dark Knight director’s first film since 2014’s Interstellar. But for some, Dunkirk is about something else entirely, because the film features the acting debut of One Direction’s Harry Styles.

As usual when anything vaguely One Direction-y happens, their army of fans were out in force on social media and on Friday they weren’t happy. After being teased with photos of Harry and his new short hair filming scenes from the movie, the heartthrob was nowhere to be found in the just under a minute long trailer.

During filming a number of locals were stopped from entering the beach with one person in a land yacht coming very close to driving straight across the set. Three warships circled off the coast adding to the war-like atmosphere while cast members held up cutouts of soldiers to create the illusion of more people in battle. - Dunkirk, France - Monday 23rd May 2016

Josh Hartnett Christopher Nolan

Back in the late 90s and early 2000s Josh Hartnett was the man of the moment, after starring in blockbusters Pearl Harbour and Black Hawk Down. But by the mid-2000s the teen heartthrob seemed to disappear from the Hollywood mainstream, after turning down a number of high profile gigs.

Complained About The Sound Quality In 'Interstellar'? It Was Intentional.


Christopher Nolan

Interstellar is a big hit for Paramount. Make no mistake about it. Despite mixed reviews, very few have disagreed with the opinion that the sci-fi epic is Christopher Nolan's most visually impressive project to date and the box-office numbers have been strong. However, not everyone has been so enamoured with all of the technical achievements of this blockbuster.

Interstellar'Interstellar' has been another success for Nolan, though some audiences have complained about the sound quality in certain scenes

Last week, one cinema in New York posted a notice confirming that its equipment was in fully working order after some complaints regarding the sound mix. In particular, viewers struggled to hear dialogue featuring Michael Caine revealing key information to Jessica Chastain's from his hospital bed.

Interstellar Review


Very Good

Brainy blockbuster maestro Christopher Nolan heads into deep space with this epic adventure, which is packed with thoughtful ideas and big emotions even if the plot wobbles badly in the middle. But although it ultimately feels somewhat forced, the film is still a mesmerising exploration of parenthood and survival, bending time and gravity in ways that keep our brains spinning. And the seamless visual effects combine with some wrenching performances to make it unmissable.

It opens in a future America where a desperation for food has overtaken the need for technology and innovation. Which is a problem for Nasa pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), who is now working a massive corn farm that he runs with his father (John Lithgow). Then Cooper and his daughter Murph (Mackenzie Foy) discover a gravitational anomaly that leads them to a secret base run by father and daughter scientists Brand and Amelia (Michael Caine and Anne Hathaway), who are looking for a new home planet for humanity since Earth is dying. So Cooper joins up and heads through a wormhole with Amelia and crew (Wes Bentley and David Gyasi). Meanwhile, Murph (who grows up to be Jessica Chastain) gets involved in the project back on earth, wondering if her dad will ever return home as he promised.

The first act of the story is a beautiful depiction of yearning for discovery, that innate curiosity that drives people to do crazy things in the hopes of pushing the humanity forward (or in this case, saving it). Nolan directs this section beautifully, with sharp editing propelling the story out into space with real energy and passion. But once they begin visiting other planets, there are some extended episodes that feel oddly contrived, including an encounter that leads to unexplained violence, explosions and melodrama. These kinds of things undermine the characters' motivations to the point where the audience just has to take Nolan's word for it and ride it out, even as the underlying ideas begin to lose their weightiness.

The Strange Critical Reactions To Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'


Christopher Nolan Matthew Mcconaughey

Depending on which critic you generally listen to for your movie recommendations, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is either a genuine masterpiece, full of verve, energy and jaw-dropping visuals, or it's a turgid, shallow sci-fi with cheap, hokey sentimentalism.

InterstellarMatthew Mcconaughey [L] plays a widowed engineer in Chrstopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'

The big-budget movie stars Matthew McConaughey as a widowed engineer who travels into space to embark on a voyage through a black hole. They're the places in space where gravity pulls so much that light can't get out. They're also invisible - despite being the size of 1 million suns together.

McConaughey's 'Insterstellar' To Screen At 3am As Demand Increases


Matthew Mcconaughey Christopher Nolan Anne Hathaway

We're still three weeks away from the release of Christopher Nolan's shadowy movie Interstellar, but speculation is already hotting up regarding the potential of this big-budget sci-fi epic. The plot remains a mystery - other than the fact that it will include ecological cataclysms and wormholes - and it's that intrigue that is driving the growing publicity campaign.

Interstellar Matthew Mcconaughey will be a big draw, though Christopher Nolan is becoming a brand in himself

As Variety notes, Nolan has essentially become a brand in himself - a tag that could previously only be attributed to Spielberg and Scorsese - and Interstellar is tracking to make more than $50 million as word-of-mouth increases. Last year, Gravity opened to $55.8 million and Legendary Pictures have a similar number in sight.

Only one hope remains for humanity if it is to survive into its next generation - they must leave Earth behind. Cooper (Matthew Mcconaughey), is a widowed engineer, living in a time where engineers are no longer needed. He also happens to be one of the world's best pilots. He is offered the choice to stay with his children and except the fate of the human race, or captain a mission through a newly discovered wormhole in search of a new, habitable planet which can sustain the prolonged existence of our species. He chooses the latter option, and begins his interstellar travels in search of a new home.
