SAVE EVERY BREATH: THE DUNKIRK VR EXPERIENCE got the breath on July 7!!!
Warner Bros. Pictures, in partnership with Microsoft, Intel and Dell, has created Save Every Breath: The Dunkirk VR Experience (VRE), and is available on multiple virtual reality platforms, at dunkirkmovie.com/vr
The pulse-pounding 360-degree short film immerses the viewer in the world of Christopher Nolan’s epic action thriller DUNKIRK. Through three tightly woven sequences, the VRE offers a tantalizing taste of the much-anticipated film, in which 400,000 Allied soldiers are trapped on the beach of Dunkirk, France, with their backs to the sea as the enemy closes in.
Created by Practical Magic, the VRE features specially created original content that thrusts viewers into each of the movie’s three key perspectives -land, sea and air – where they experience firsthand the race against time to survive under enemy fire. The twisting time frames of the scenes mirror the non-linear structure of the circuitous time scales in Nolan’s movie.
The virtual reality experience takes your breath away, submerging you underwater in the channel, surrounded by danger; then taking you to the skies, piloting an RAF Spitfire; and finally onto the beach, one of hundreds of thousands of trapped Allied soldiers awaiting their fate.
Nolan directed DUNKIRK from his own original screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. DUNKIRK opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
The film’s ensemble cast includes Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy. Produced by Nolan and Emma Thomas, with Jake Myers serving as executive producer.
DUNKIRK was filmed on location in France, Holland, the UK and Los Angeles. Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Syncopy Production a film by Christopher Nolan, DUNKIRK.
DUNKIRK opens in conventional theatres and IMAX® on July 21.
