You & Everyone Else Missed Michael Caine’s Sneaky Cameo In ‘Dunkirk’

It’s barely hit cinemas and it seems every second person has already seen Christopher Nolan‘s World War II epic, ‘Dunkirk’. 
That’s why it’s such a bloody surprise to learn that Michael Caine actually made a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo that nearly everyone… missed.
In the beginning of the movie, the cinematic icon can be heard barking orders to a couple of fighter pilots, including hottie Tom Hardy, over the radio.
It was a reporter from US site New Jersey Local News who recognised his British twang during an early screening and hit Nolan up about it during a press interview.
“Yes, good for you for spotting him,” the director said. “It’s shocking to me that a lot of people haven’t, when he has really one of the most distinctive voices in cinema. I wanted very much to squeeze him in here. It’s a bit of a nod to his character in [1969 World War II film] ‘Battle of Britain’.
He added: “It’s Michael. He has to be in all my films, after all.”
Nolan does, indeed, have Caine on the brain at all times: he’s featured in several of his movies, including the Dark Knight’ trilogy, ‘Interstellar’ and ‘The Prestige’.
It’s so good we have no qualms in rewatching it to to spot-the-Caine.
