Hello movie marauders!! Dunkirk was released July 21, 2017. It is directed by Christopher Nolan, and got a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. I have heard a lot of positive reactions to this movie, but have not yet seen it (But I really want to). Dunkirk is based on a true story about World War II. This article contains NO spoilers, so you don't have to worry if you haven't seen the movie yet. Before we get into the article, I would like to thank all of my 29 followers! Thank you for reading and upvoting my content, I really appreciate it!! Now, lets get to these fun facts about Dunkirk!!!

1. More than 50 boats were used for the movie, which is the most that has ever been put on film.

3. Dunkirk is Nolan's first film to be based off of historical events.

4. Nolan decided to have young/unknown actors play the soldiers because the Dunkirk evacuation had inexperienced and young soldiers--according to first hand accounts Nolan read.
