If you haven’t heard about Dunkirk yet, it’s one of this year’s most anticipated movies. From filmmaker Christopher Nolan (who also did Interstellar, Inception, and The Dark Night), the film is set to be a blockbuster hit.
But here’s the thing: I’m probably going to see it, but only because of Harry Styles.
Don’t get me wrong — I’m sure it’s a great movie. Maybe even brilliant. Nolan’s other films, such as Interstellar and Inception, are known for being mind-blowing and incredibly well done, and I’m sure this won’t be an exception. But would I see Dunkirk if Harry Styles wasn’t starring in it? Absolutely not.
What surprises me is the amount of backlash I get for saying that. People act like I’m personally attacking them just because I don’t really care to see the movie, I just care to see Harry Styles dressed as a hot British soldier. What’s so wrong with that?
You can judge me all you want, but honestly, the movie itself just isn’t my thing — I’ve never been a huge fan of war or survival stories. The plot itself just doesn’t interest me. But what does interest me? Harry Styles. More specifically, Harry styles in his first (and allegedly last) acting role of his career. How is the pop star going to transform into a war hero? I need to know.
Nolan supposedly didn’t realize that Styles was already famous when he chose him for the part over hundreds of other actors. I am going to take this to mean Harry Styles is an amazing actor, which is no surprise to me. There’s something about Harry Styles that makes me believe, deep in my soul, that he can do anything. Have you seen him pull off heels? Have you heard that falsetto? In his music video for “Sign of the Times”, he can even fly. I’m going to start a petition to get him to unretire from acting.
Anyway, go see Harry Styles in theaters tomorrow. I have a feeling it’ll be worth it.
