The legendary English-American cinematographer, editor, film
producer, screenwriter and director Christopher Edward Nolan, also
known as Christopher Nolan says that Dark Knight trilogy has helped
him in structuring shoots for his latest film Dunkirk.
The iconic film-maker who has helmed many stellar films like
Interstellar, Inception, Dark Knight Trilogy and many more,
credited the Batman films for the inspirations and concepts for
Dunkirk. Nolan said Dunkirk has been moulded into the imagery of
Batman films, only in a different tone.
"I think the time I spent making large scale entertainment ---
with respect to entertainment, this is suspenseful entertainment.
My 10 years of working with the character of Batman is essential to
understanding imagery and sound, and push-and-pull in a particular
direction." Said Nolan.
Nolan also stated that he had always wanted to tell the story of
Dunkirk in the backdrop of WWII and Operation Dynamo, which he
managed to portray vividly in his upcoming movie.
"It's the story of being trapped and surrounded by the enemy at
the town of Dunkirk and having the impossible choice of
annihilation or surrender. And the fact that the story does not end
in annihilation or surrender is why it's one of the great stories."
Christopher Nolan stated further.
