A minesweeper marked 'J22' appears during one of the evacuation sequences in the latter portion of the film. While there was really a Royal Navy minesweeper operational at the time with this pennant number, it did not participate in the Dunkirk evacuation.
There are no opening credits, except for the film's title.
In Spain, the film was projected on 2.35:1 screens in the 2.20:1 aspect ratio. But the film was finally projected with black bars on the four sides of the screen. This same situation happened with Jurassic World (2015) and just before the film started a text appeared on the screen explaining the 2.00:1 aspect ratio fitting on the 2.35:1 screen adding black bars up an down. Dunkirk (2017) didn't show any explanation before the film.
