Harry Styles

In the lead-up to the release of Christopher Nolan’s new war epic Dunkirk, we managed to have a sit down with two of the movie’s stars, Fionn Whitehead and none other than Harry Styles himself.

Both play troops on the ground, trying their best to get off the beach and back home to England, dealing with the rising panic of knowing the German army is sending planes their way to pick them off from the air.

During the chats, there was A LOT of topic we got through, including how Harry deals with those Heath Ledger comparisons, made by Christopher Nolan himself, who faced similar, “why did you cast him?” flack when it was announced he would be playing The Joker, but quickly shut everyone up once they seen his stellar turn in The Dark Knight.

We also asked them what their favourite Nolan film is (they couldn’t cheat and say Dunkirk, obviously), and the One Direction-er also had some very interesting things to say about Conor McGregor, in terms of both his unique fashion sense, and how he reckons that upcoming bout with Mayweather might be turning out.

Dunkirk is in Irish cinemas from 21 July, and we absolutely, wholeheartedly recommend you check it out and the biggest, loudest screen you can find.

Plus that cast – including Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Barry Keoghan, Kenneth Branagh, to name just a few – is phenomenal.

If you somehow haven’t seen the trailer yet, you can check it out right here…
