Christopher Nolan’s upcoming mind-bender Tenet, still scheduled for a theatrical release in July despite the coronavirus pandemic, dropped its trailer on Friday. The sci-fi action thriller seems to draw some inspiration from its predecessors, Inception and Memento, which certainly makes it even more captivating to watch. Also, with a production budget of $205 million, Tenet is Nolan’s most expensive undertaking to date.
Set in a world of espionage, actor John David Washington plays the protagonist who happens to be an elite spy, military-type operative, and time engineer, surprisingly all at once. The trailer reveals that the character played by John D. Washington has to stop World War III by manipulating time. The concept of the movie looks at the reverse-engineering time to change the future. The word “tenet” is revealed to be a password of some sort that ensures people take him seriously. Though the trailer reveals most about the film so far, the plot of the movie is still shrouded in secrecy.
Nolan loves making distinctive films that revolve around ‘time’ being the core of the film. His 2010 hit Inception serves as the best example which had its entire concept pivoted on time-engineering. Tenet, in many ways, is reminiscent of Inception.
Tenet is scheduled for theatrical release on July 17, 2020.
Tenet’s star cast includes Martin Donovan, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh, Dimple Kapadia, and Michael Caine.
