Christopher Nolan Reveals Why He Didn't Release 'Dunkirk' During Oscar Season

Christopher Nolan is on the cover of the latest issue of Variety, out now.

Here’s what the 47-year-old Dunkirk director and screenwriter said:

On releasing Dunkirk mid-summer instead of at the end of the year when most Oscar contenders are released:: “We saw it as a blockbuster. It’s a strange [term] to use in relation to the subject matter, but we saw it as an entertainment, albeit one that’s intense and suspenseful. We wanted it to reach the widest audience possible, and that happens in summer.”

On how Dunkirk differs from Saving Private Ryan‘s blood-filled opening: “I needed suspense, and the language of suspense is one where you can’t take your eyes from the screen. The language of horror is one where you hide your eyes. You’re looking away. It’s a different form of tension. We constructed our set-pieces not around violence, not around blood, but around physical jeopardy.”

On his recent comments about Netflix and accused the streaming giant of trying to shut down theaters, calling its decision to forego cinemas for a straight-to-subscriber launch “mindless”: “I should have been more polite. I said what I believe, but I was undiplomatic in the way I expressed it. I wasn’t giving any context to the frankly revolutionary nature of what Netflix has done. It’s extraordinary. They need appropriate respect for that, which I have.”

'Dunkirk' Cast Wasn't Allowed Water Bottles or Chairs on Set!

Dunkirk director Christopher Nolan didn’t let the cast use water bottles or chairs while filming, according to Mark Rylance.

“[Christopher] does things like he doesn’t like having chairs on set for actors or bottles of water, he’s very particular,” the 57-year-old actor told the Independent.

Mark‘s co-star Barry Keoghan explained Christopher‘s reasoning behind the decisions.

“They’re distractions – the noise of [the bottles], they’re like toys almost, playing around with toys,” he shared. “[The lack of chairs] keeps you on your toes, literally.”

Mark added that Christopher is “very particular about using film and everything being real in front of the camera, so there were a lot of old techniques used in this film to make it look real. The flames on the water and men swimming in them; he really wants to minimize the amount of post-production and CGI stuff.”

Michael Caine's Voice Can Be Heard in 'Dunkirk'

Here’s something you probably didn’t realize about the movie DunkirkMichael Caine‘s voice can be heard in the film!

The 84-year-old Oscar-winning actor has been in every one of Christopher Nolan‘s movies ever since Batman Begins in 2005, and this one is no exception.

Michael‘s voice can be heard giving orders to the pilots played by Tom Hardy and Jack Lowden.

“It’s shocking to me that a lot of people haven’t [spotted the cameo], when he has really one of the most distinctive voices in cinema,” Nolan said in an interview with NJ.com. “I wanted very much to squeeze him in here. It’s a bit of a nod to his character in Battle of Britain. And also, it’s Michael. He has to be in all my films, after all.”

Battle of Britain is a movie from 1969 in which Caine plays a pilot.
