New IMAX Featurette for Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Takes Us Behind the Frame

Dunkirk IMAX Featurette

"The immersive quality of the image is second to none." IMAX has unveiled a new four-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, taking us "Behind the Frame" and giving us a look at the incredible work on this movie. The video features extensive interviews with director Christopher Nolan, producer Emma Thomas, and cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema discussing how important it was to film 70% of this in the full IMAX format. "It is the most beautiful way to watch a movie." This stars Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh, James D'Arcy, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, Jack Lowden, and Adam Long. This is an excellent featurette that has boat loads of behind-the-scenes footage and lots of good discussion about making this intense WWII film. Hitting theaters soon. ›››

New Official US Trailer for Action Film ‘Pilgrimage’ with Jon Bernthal

Pilgrimage Trailer

"A powerful man does not become so without sin." RLJ Entertainment has unveiled a second trailer for the indie action thriller Pilgrimage, set in Ireland during the 13th century. The story follows a group of monks who must escort a sacred relic across the "Irish landscape fraught with peril". Starring Richard Armitage, Tom Holland, John Lynch, Stanley Weber, Lochlann O'Mearáin, Hugh O'Conor, Eric Godon, plus the badass Jon Bernthal as a character named "The Mute". We already posted the first official trailer for this earlier in the year, but I'm glad to see another one reminding us that this is finally coming out soon. They're obviously playing up Tom Holland from Spider-Man: Homecoming, but the entire cast looks great. ›››
