Nolan, who has been a longtime supporter of shooting on film (versus digital), said of the special release:

The immersive quality of the image is second to none, drawing the audience into the action in the most intense way possible.

In a recent Fandango survey, Dunkirk was named one of the top-five most anticipated films of the summer. In 70MM, audiences will feel they are a part of the race against time to rescue 400,000 British and Allied troops trapped by enemy forces on the beaches of Dunkirk during World War II.

A full list of 70MM theaters in both the U.S. and Canada may be found on the official Dunkirk website at Tickets for regular format showings will also be available beginning 9:00 a.m. EDT, Friday, July 7.

Dunkirk opens in theaters July 21.
