  • -You can see his big-screen debut in Christopher Nolan's

  • fantastic new movie, "Dunkirk."

  • I saw it the other night.

  • You are fantastic, my friend. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • You were really good.

  • -Thank you very much. Thanks.

  • -And the movie itself is just --

  • I didn't know this story about Dunkirk.

  • I didn't know that it was --

  • -Yeah, it's a pretty crazy story.

  • I think the thing with it is there's no --

  • There's no, like, crazy back stories

  • to any of the characters, really.

  • I think they're a relatively blank slate.

  • And it means, when you're watching it,

  • you're kind of projecting your fear.

  • You're almost, like, watching them,

  • just imagining it as you, and it's, you know...

  • I found it very emotional, and I was in it, so...

  • -Yeah.

  • I mean, from all different angles

  • and aspects and different jobs, I got to say,

  • the cast was fantastic.

  • -The cast is unbelievable.

  • -Shout-out to the casting director.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • The casting director is John Papsidera...

  • -John Papsidera.

  • -...who is -- man, oh, man!

  • I'm telling you, when you see a movie that has good casting,

  • I always go, "That is the greatest."

  • Because sometimes you see someone

  • that just takes you out of the movie.

  • This thing, I didn't know.

  • I just loved every single person.

  • I was like... [ Panting ]

  • And I saw it on a 70-millimeter projector.

  • -You were like what?

  • -[ Panting ]

  • I was in labor. I was in labor through half --

  • It turns out, it was the movie of the summer.

  • -It is. It really is a summer --

  • But it's, like, a -- it's a --

  • You just have to check it out.

  • I think I would go back and see it, as well, in IMAX.

  • -I have to say, you have to watch it in IMAX.

  • -Really? -Yeah, it's crazy.

  • -The thing I liked about it -- I saw it in 70 millimeter.

  • And you could hear the projector going like...

  • [ Imitates projector whirring ] -Yeah.

  • -So that was going... [ Imitates projector whirring ]

  • And I was going... [ Panting ]

  • -Well, you can hear all the IMAX cameras when you're filming.

  • They're quite loud.

  • -You can. -[ Imitates camera whirring ]

  • -Oh, of course, 'cause it's real film.

  • But, man, oh, man.

  • Christopher Nolan -- how is he?

  • Is he just a tricky guy?

  • -I mean, I'm such a fan of his. -Yeah, me too.

  • -And I'm such a fan of so many people working on this film,

  • and it just felt like such a...

  • I felt so lucky to be there, to be honest.

  • -Well, what a great story, and it's moving,

  • and I just didn't really know anything about it.

  • If you see it, it's basically, what the idea is,

  • these soldiers are basically trapped.

  • -Yeah.

  • -And the Germans are just killing them off, bombing them.

  • So what happens is, these people who have boats --

  • fishermen, local people from England who have --

  • they drive their own boats over to save the soldiers.

  • -Yeah, I think that's what makes it so...

  • -That's a little part of it, though.

  • -...so nice to watch is, it's kind of the opposite

  • to what a traditional kind of movie set around war is.

  • Not as being the heroes and kind of going and saving the day.

  • It's just about community, heroism,

  • and how these small acts from civilians

  • and the normal people who are at home,

  • coming to save us kind of together

  • makes this massive thing.

  • And I think it's very much about the spirit of people,

  • and, you know, how, when people come together,

  • you can do incredible things.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -We have a clip.

  • Here is Harry Styles' big-screen debut

  • in Christopher Nolan's period war drama, "Dunkirk,"

  • in theaters Friday.

  • Check this out.

  • -What's wrong with your friend?

  • [ Hatch squeals ]

  • -He's looking for a quick way out...

  • in case we go down.

  • ♪♪♪♪

  • -Torpedo!

  • [ Explosion, men shouting ]

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -Whoo! -Hoo!
