LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5 (UPI) — The first teaser trailer has been released for acclaimed director Christopher Nolan‘s next film, the World War II set drama entitled “Dunkirk.”

The clip released Thursday after footage leaked online as it began playing in front of “Suicide Squad” features a group of soldiers on the shores of the French city of Dunkrik.

As bomber planes are heard overhead, the men are seen ducking and taking together while inside a boat. Notably, the city of Dunkrik is known as the location of one of the biggest battles in World War II history.

“At the point of crisis. At the point of annihilation. Survival is victory,” the trailer explains in-between scenes.

The film’s cast, which includes Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and One Direction alum Harry Styles, are noticeably missing from the trailer.

Shot on 65mm large format film and IMAX, Dunkrik will arrive in theaters July 19, 2017.
