If you've been eagerly awaiting anything from Christopher Nolan's next movie, epic World War II tale Dunkirk, you're about to be happy. The first "announcement" teaser has arrived and you can watch it below.

Dunkirk is set at a precarious time for the allied forces in the conflict – with hundreds of thousands of troops surrounded on the continent by enemy forces, their backs to the sea, they're faced with a seemingly impossible situation as their foes close in. But, as we know from history, Britain had other ideas...

For this one, Nolan has recruited a fantastic cast that features people he's worked with before and some new faces. The line-up includes Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, James D'Arcy, Jack Lowden and newcomer Fionn Whitehead. And yes, Harry Styles will be in there somewhere.

The teaser doesn't show much of the movie; this is more of a tone piece, showing the troops in their tough situation. Besides, production on the film is still in progress and it isn't due to arrive until July 21 next year.
