A big new trailer has been released for Tenet, the next picture from acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, Dunkirk).
Nolan has loved playing with time in his films, wether it be the reversing narrative of Memento, the differing measuring of dream time in Inception, or the effects on time with deep space travel with Interstellar. With Tenet, he’s tackling it with another mind-bending approach.
“Time travel.” “No. Inversion.”
The vague yet enticing synopsis reads: “The Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.” Yeah, it’s best you just watch the trailer and start pondering everything that’s shown off.
Suffice it to say, this film may be at the top of this writer’s most anticipated, and it’s exciting to get confirmation from both Warner Bros. and Roadshow Films that it’s still getting a theatrical release. In the U.S. Tenet will be one of the first major releases as cinemas begin to open, although there won’t be much surprise if its still-locked-in release date of July 17 is moved back a little. The Australian release date of July 16 hasn’t been reiterated yet by Roadshow, so it’s possible the distributor is waiting to see what unfolds with easing restrictions on cinemas before confirming the/announcing a new date.
Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.
