Director Christopher Nolan returns to his time-traveling roots, this time within the world international espionage in “Tenet,” with the film’s first trailer released today.
Like many of Nolan’s film, there is not a lot of details about the plot of the upcoming action thriller, which Nolan also wrote, as well as produced with Emma Thomas.
Here we see John David Washington as a mysterious agent of a top-secret group who may (or may not) be trying to prevent World War III. There’s plenty of cryptic dialogue, a car chase and a few things going in reverse that recall Nolan’s other mind-bender, 2010’s blockbuster Inception.
The film is stacked with big-name talents including Robert Pattinson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh and Elizabeth Debicki.
Last month, Warner Bros. also announced that a longer prologue for Tenet will be shown before Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in some IMAX screenings, something the studio also did with Nolan’s other films including “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Dunkirk.”

Nolan fans now have a new film to look forward to. The Oscar nominated filmmaker is set for release on IMAX on July 17, 2020, per Hollywood Reporter published today.
It is no surprise that the studio has taken July as a perfect time to release the English auteur’s epic blockbusters. During the past few years, his name has been synonymous to hugely ambitious narrative scope and visual spectacle.
In fact, most of his most recent movies such as The Dark Knight, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and were all July releases and received both critical and commercial successes.
His last film, the World War II epic blockbuster “Dunkirk”, was also released in July of 2017. That film grossed $520 million at the boxoffice and received eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and his first Best Director nomination.
In total, Nolan’s movies grossed nearly US $5 billion worldwide and received 34 Oscar nominations, ten of which received the winning trophies.
Not much has been revealed about the upcoming Warner Bros. “event film,” but given his industry stature it is sure to attract plenty of major talents. We are sure to follow the development of this film and will publish more information when they are released.
