Christopher Nolan’s WWII movie Dunkirk Begins Production in France

I share this so everyone can see that even the most experienced filmmaker with a huge budget sometimes has to cheat a little.

Filming has begun on the Christopher Nolan-directed World War II movie Dunkirk in the exact spot in France where, 76 years ago this week, 100,000 soldiers were evacuated. Here is your first look at Dunkirk set photos, featuring warships circling off the coast to add war-like atmosphere while cast members hold up cutouts of soldiers to create the illusion of more people in battle.

I’m trying to imagine how that is going to look but like all Christopher Nolan’s movies probably perfect.

Last night Mythbuster’s Adam Savage hosted a Q&A with J.J. Abrams, Justin Lin, Chris Pine, Karl Urban & Zachary Quinto on Stage 31 where Star Trek was filmed between 1966 and 1969. The Q&A was followed by a street naming ceremony in honor of Leonard Nimoy. Following the ceremony fans were shown the new trailer and never before seen footage from the film.

Here’s the trailer released yesterday:

“Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In “Beyond,” the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
