We’re one year away from a new Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar) film, but to remind us Dunkirk is coming we’ve got the first teaser trailer to do just that — tease the living daylights out of us.

And what a tease it is!

Watch it below.

It’s most definitely a tease — bringing us to a beach full of soldiers, introducing us to its World War II setting — and then right at the end there’s this brilliant long shot of solider in a boat casually looking up to the sky with a hint of a smile on his face before horror strikes and a fierce fight breaks out.

We don’t see the fight… yet, but we know it’s coming. And that ticking clock running throughout tells us time will play a crucial role in the film. Based on…

Christopher Nolan Brings You to the Brink of War in First ‘Dunkirk’ Trailer

Christopher Nolan loves to keep you wanting more.

The first teaser trailer for “Dunkirk,” his new World War II epic, is here and “The Dark Knight” trilogy director wants it to be as “teaser-y” as possible.

Quick shots of a beach, sand blowing over a row of fallen soldiers, and a boat full of increasingly worried troops looking skyward at the approaching whine of incoming aircraft are all you see. Well, that and a few title cards in Nolan’s preferred font since “Batman Begins.”

What’s the movie about? From the press release: “‘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.

'Dunkirk' (2017) Teaser Trailer

The film reunites Nolan with Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy, actors he worked with previously on “Inception” and the Batman films. “Dunkirk” also stars Kenneth Branagh, Oscar-winner Mark Rylance, and Harry Styles.

Shot largely in IMAX 65mm film and 65mm large-format photography, “Dunkirk” hits theaters on July 21, 2017.

The Last Horror Blog: The Movies You HAVE to Watch After Binging Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, odds are you’ve heard plenty about the Duffer Brothers’ new Netflix series Stranger Things. This homage to everything we loved about ‘80s cult cinema has taken the Internet by storm, and with good cause – it not only pushes our Gen X nostalgia buttons for all the things those of us who grew up in the Reagan era came to love, but it’s also pretty damn entertaining in its own right. Sure, the nostalgia occasionally overwhelms the actual show (whose eight episodes often feel like a fever dream recreation of my childhood more than a standalone story), but if nothing else, Stranger Things is a solid reminder that it’s okay to actually go back and visit your youth.

With that in…
