WEYMOUTH shines in the new Dunkirk trailer – but there’s something not quite right in the background.

In the new trailer for the Second World War blockbuster, Weymouth harbour, the backs of the hotels on the Esplanade and the Pavilion theatre can be seen. Award-winning actor Mark Rylance is seen casting off his small wooden boat on the way to help collect soldiers stranded at Dunkirk.

Eagle-eyed Echo readers got in touch to point out that the Pavilion, as it appears in the trailer, was rebuilt in the late 1950s. But there is one even more modern addition to the trailer – the Jurassic Skyline, previously the Weymouth Sea Life Tower.

Echo reader Carl Perry spotted the addition.

He said: “One mistake I’ve noticed in the trailer is that in the top left hand corner above the roofs you can see the Jurassic Skyline built in 2012.”

The Jurassic Skyline can be seen for a split-second at 44 seconds into the trailer. The former Condor Ferries’ offices can also be seen at the back of the shot.

The new film tells the true story of Operation Dynamo. During the Second World War, in 1940, Dunkirk was the scene of the mass evacuation of more than 338,000 allied troops, who had retreated in the face of the German advance. This evacuation, also known as the Miracle of Dunkirk, was aided by the hastily-assembled fleet of more than 800 ships.

Film crews spent time filming along Weymouth Harbour and at Swanage Railway in July last year, much to the delight of Dorset star-spotters and film fans.

Mayor of Weymouth and Portland Richard Kosior said he was surprised the modern addition had been missed, adding: “I’m surprised the editing team didn’t pick it up. And it took the diligent view of Weymouth’s Echo readers to identify it. Let’s hope they can do something about it.”

Borough council spokesman for Tourism and Culture and Harbour, Jason Osborne, said that although the gaff was a bit ‘embarrassing’ for the film team, he didn’t think it would spoil anyone’s enjoyment of the movie.

He added that hopefully when national and international audiences realised it was filmed in Weymouth, that people would want to visit. He said: “It’s a win, win really.”

The war epic, directed by Christopher Nolan, is one of the year’s most anticipated films and will hit cinemas on July 21. It stars Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy and One Direction star Harry Styles.

Warner Brothers Studios have been approached for comment.
