Wow, Tom Hardy is Looking Old in This Canal+ Ad

BETC and Tim Bullock offer an amusing take on Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’

Wow, Tom Hardy is Looking Old in This Canal+ Ad

In an amusing spot for Canal+, BETC has offered up a fresh take of Christopher Nolan’s epic ‘Dunkirk’.

This new version is almost true to the original, except the pilots seem to have aged a bit… but despite their advanced age, failing bladders, trembling hands and half-blindness, they heroically stick in there and play their part.

The result is a slightly tragi-comic and the message is clear – don’t let films grow old before watching them. Luckily for its subscribers, CANAL+ has the first broadcast rights on major films in France.

To produce the spot BETC teamed up with director Tim Bullock and Insurrection, while Mathematic provided special effects. The film will be broadcast on TV, in cinemas and on social media.
