The World War II epic will be shown in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Dallas, Atlanta, and Toronto. On Jan. 24 — the day after Academy Awards nominations are announced —  the film’s re-release will be expanded to include more than 250 additional locations.

Dunkirk” has grossed more than $188 million domestically in four months and another $337 million in international markets. The announcement was made Thursday by Sue Kroll, the studio’s president of worldwide marketing and distribution.

“With ‘Dunkirk,’ Christopher Nolan broke new ground in the use of large-format cameras to create a theatrical event that demands to be seen on the largest possible canvas,” she said. “As we head into the holiday season, we are excited to offer audiences another opportunity to be swept up in this truly immersive moviegoing experience…whether for the first time or again.”

“Dunkirk” is based on the eight-day evacuation of 300,000 stranded Allied troops in 1940 from France. It stars Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, and Harry Styles. Film critics have offered extensive praise for the cinematography, direction, acting, and musical score.

Three other awards contenders —  Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel,” and James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist” — are also opening in limited release on Dec. 1.
