Filmmakers around the globe have now grown a tendency to play with Time and its concepts. From the 1985’s Back to the Future and the recently released Avengers: Endgame, Hollywood has always surprised us with unreal time heist movies by one way or another. The upcoming action-thriller film Tenet is also no different. From the director of the Dark Knight Trilogy, this highly anticipated film will hit the theaters soon this year. So let’s know more about it!
When is Tenet coming out?
As revealed by the production in 2019, Tenet is set to be released on July 17, 2020. Despite the halt in the global activities due to the CoViD-19 distress, Warner Bros., the distributors, seems to be adamant about the release date of the film. Although most of the biggest films planned for this year were pushed back to be released in 2021, Tenet remains unaffected of everything.
Beginning in May 2019, the filming was done in seven different countries around the world, including the USA and India. The exclusive trailer of the film was released by Warner Bros. on December 19, 2019, and has since been a hot topic of discussions. You can check the trailer here.
The budget spent on making this film was estimated to be around $200 million! Now to be a blockbuster at the box office it needs to gross $400 million at least. This might be a bit difficult because of the closure of one of the biggest theatrical market of Indian Cinemas under the CoViD-19 Alert. However, we can still hope for the best.
Anyways, now the wait isn’t for much longer until we dive ourselves into the depths of this movie. After three years, the Oscar-nominated director Christopher Nolan is coming back with Tenet and it is definitely going to shine like all his previous projects.
What’s the Plot of Tenet?
Nolan has been so discreet about the storyline of the film, that no matter how hard you try, you won’t get to a final point. However, some bits of the plot can be deduced from the trailer. The film will deal with the mystical world of espionages, one of whose members go on a mission to prevent World War III which will be something worse than a Nuclear Holocaust. Now how does he do that? Yeah, you guessed it absolutely correct; a little gamble with Time!
But there’s something going to be so unique about this time travel as it will also work with a “reverse mode”. In the trailer, we got to know that “Tenet” is not just an ordinary word but some type of a code-word that will “open the right doors and some of the wrong ones too”. Interesting, right?
The makers were so wary of having the script leaked that Robert Pattinson, one of the leads in the film, was made to read the script alone in a locked room and for once only!
Thus, after this, you can say that Nolan has something bizarre waiting for us!
Who is Going to Be in the Movie?
The makers have not revealed the characters’ list yet but we still know a lot about its prestigious cast. The protagonist of the film will be played by the American actor John David Washington. Stars like Robert Pattinson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson who were seen playing some of our beloved characters like Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and Quicksilver in Avengers will be featuring in the movie.
The rest of the cast includes Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, Clémence Poésy, and Denzil Smith. The popular Indian Actress Dimple Kapadia will also show her presence in this film.
With such great cast, plot and direction, Tenet will not fail to blow your mind away. So, let’s wait and watch the explosion happen.
