For the first time in nearly two decades, Christopher Nolan will make a movie for a studio that’s not Warner Bros.
Nolan’s World War II film about J. Robert Oppenheimer and the development of the atomic bomb will be made for Universal Studios.
The director spoke to several studios in recent weeks, including Sony and MGM, about the possibility of backing his $100 million drama.

He did have talks with Warner Bros., but the relationship with his former studio home has grown strained.

101st Light Anti-Aircraft and Anti-Tank Regiment (LAA& the Battle for France.

So this doesn't involve #Dunkirk or #Dynamo much... but it is WELL INTENSE. Grab a beer for this one.

*Also another forgotten Welsh unit... /1
#WW2 #SWW #History
60 (RWF) Anti-Tank Regiment was detached from 53rd Welsh Division on 13 October 1939 & sent to Aldershot to reform into 101 LAA & AT Regt (there's a mouthful), an experimental regiment within 1st Armoured Division.

In theory 60 AT Regt had four batteries... /2
each of three troops armed with four 2 Pounder anti-tank guns.

As was the case for the majority of TA units, new kit was slow to arrive and there were only a couple of examples on hand for training.

The 2 Pdr was a nifty piece of kit for 38-40. /3
