Christoper Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ is one of the most anticipated films of our time. The story will be told from three perspectives – land, sea, and air. With an all-star team behind the camera and in front of it, there’s no way this won’t be one of the top films of all time. Christopher Nolan is a film genius and this is a project that he approached with knowledge and confidence.
For a film of this caliber, the score was very important so Nolan joined with Hans Zimmer after success with Interstellar, the Dark Knight trilogy, and Inception. Nolan says Zimmer’s score makes the tone and sets the narrative in Dunkirk.
He went on to say this about the film and its score and how the audience had to be taken on this journey as a war film but more than that, a thriller.
‘Dunkirk is one of the greatest suspense stories of all time, and our film needed a score to reflect that and to propel the audience through a telling of this story that is more thriller than a war film. Hans’ unique score drives the visceral sense of action the film needs to put the audience right into the story, using images, sound, and music.’
