Dunkirk is coming to 4K, Blu-ray, Blu-ray Limited Edition and DVD – Release Dates
Earlier this year I was blown away by the IMAX screening of the rather stunning, Dunkirk, the film is one of the most acclaimed films of the year, now thanks to Warner Bros. Pictures, Dunkirk is making its way to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, Limited Edition Blu-ray Filmbook and 2 Disc DVD.
Nolan directed “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay, utilising a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. The film was partially shot on location on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, where the actual events unfolded.
Director Christopher Nolan said, “I’m excited to be releasing ‘Dunkirk’ on 4K UHD with HDR. The film was shot entirely on the highest definition Imax and 65mm film and this fantastic new format, with its increased resolution and superior colour reproduction is able to maximize Dunkirk’s impact in the home.”
The film’s ensemble cast includes Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.
