The Length Of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk Movie Has Been Revealed

The length for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk movie has now been revealed. Surprisingly, it will be one of Christopher Nolan's shortest movies to date. It is actually going to be much shorter than a lot of blockbusters that are out this year.

Story continues below....

As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, insiders have confirmed that Dunkirk will only be one hour and 47 minutes long. This is shorter than the two hours or two and a half hour long movies that have been released this Summer. The likes of Wonder Woman, Transformers: The Last Knight, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming are all well over two hours long.

The length of the film is also quite short since Nolan in the past has loved to make films close to the three hour mark. 2014's Interstellar was 169 minutes long while The Dark Knight Rises clocked in at 165 minutes long. The short length of Dunkirk could potentially help it at the Box Office because this means cinemas will be able to book more showings for the film per day.

It's possible the film is short because it's based on a true story and is just about war. Usually Nolan films are quite long because he likes to use the time to explain his complicated storylines. There is no complicated storyline in his latest film so we could see a lot of fast-paced action instead. The movie will be told in three different perspectives so it doesn't have a linear narrative either.

The film comes out in North America on July 21st, 2017. The film could be a Box Office hit since people usually go out and watch any film that is directed by Nolan.
