'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.

This is Why Harry Styles Isn't Really in the 'Dunkirk' Trailers

If you watched any of the trailers for Dunkirk and couldn’t spot Harry Styles, there’s reason for that.

Director Christopher Nolan recently opened up about why he doesn’t really appear on screen.

“We’re not trying to oversell Harry in the movie for the specific reason that it’s an ensemble,” he told EW. “We don’t want people who are huge fans of his being disappointed that he’s not in it enough.”

As for his acting skills, Christopher said, “I think what Harry does is extremely subtle because it’s very real. It’s not cartoonish. It’s not obvious. He really taps into the reality of the situation. It’s a subtle performance. It almost risks being missed because what it’s actually doing. I think it’s a great character for him, and I think he did an incredible job.”

Dunkirk hits theaters on July 21.

Dunkirk's Christopher Nolan Didn't Realize Harry Styles Was Incredibly Famous

Christopher Nolan, the director of the upcoming film Dunkirk, revealed that he didn’t realize just how famous Harry Styles was before casting him in the upcoming war movie.

“I don’t think I was that aware really of how famous Harry was,” the director told the AP. “I mean, my daughter had talked about him. My kids talked about him, but I wasn’t really that aware of it. So the truth is, I cast Harry because he fit the part wonderfully and truly earned a seat at the table.”

“She was just more excited than anything I’ve ever done because I was going to be acting with Harry Styles,” the movie’s star, Mark Rylance, added about his niece. “I went up in her estimation. I won the Harry!”
