SKY’S THE LIMIT
Enjoy the spectacular, award-winning brilliance of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk exclusively on Sky Cinema.
When Dunkirk came away from this year’s Oscars with three Academy Awards, it wouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone who has experienced Christopher Nolan’s spectacular World War II epic that two of the statuettes (for Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing) were for its pioneering work in sound. More so than in any of his other films, Nolan’s virtuosity as a director, the masterful use of sound and long-term collaborator Hans Zimmer’s nerve-shredding score came together to create a powerful, immersive experience. Its music and audio played a crucial role in intensifying the spiralling tension as almost 340,000 Allied soldiers, under fire from the advancing German army, were evacuated across the English Channel. From 4 May, you can enjoy Dunkirk’s fivestar brilliance on demand exclusively on Sky Cinema (also available in UHD for Sky Q Multiscreen customers). Feel each emotionally-charged moment slowly count down as the intertwining narrative threads follow the agonising experiences of the soldiers on the beach, the spitfire pilots overhead and the rescue efforts of the ordinary citizens who crossed the Channel to help in the rescue. So pull your sofa up close, hook the TV up to the stereo and lose yourself in Sky Cinema – the best way to watch your favourite movies at home. With a brand new premiere added every day*, all you have to do is sit back, pick a film and enjoy the finest cinema has to offer, whenever you want.
Common: he’d got into a row with a particularly stubborn seagull.
Hats off to Kenneth Branagh as Commander Bolton.
