It’s here. The trailer of Tenet, the most anticipated film of 2020, is here. And as expected, it is grand in scale and will leave you scratching your head. The first thing that comes to your mind after watching the trailer is that it looks a spiritual successor to ‘Inception’.
It’s no secret that Christopher Nolan’s films always turn into a global phenomenon. By the looks of it, Tenet seems to be heading in that direction as well. Not much has been revealed in terms of plot, but we do know — and as is evident from the trailer — ‘Tenet’ is an action epic dealing with the world of international espionage and spies. While this seems like regular subject matter for any filmmaker to attempt, what makes this a Nolan project are the wildest reports that the film will also deal with the space-time continuum. Star Robert Pattinson has called the film “unreal”.
Obviously, the film has a massive star cast, led by ‘Blackkklansman’ star John David Washington. He is joined by Elizabeth Debicki, and Robert Pattinson. , Aaron Taylor Johnson, Clemence Poesy and Indian veteran actress Dimple Kapadia are also part of the cast. Nolan regulars Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine also have crucial roles in the film.
Nolan and his wife Emma Thomas are producing the project, with WB distributing. Hoyt Van Hoytema, another frequent Nolan collaborator, is the cinematographer of the film. Ludwig Goransson has done the musical score of ‘Tenet’ and Jennifer Lame has the editing duties.
With all the details about the film out-of-the-way, here’s the eagerly anticipated trailer. It’s evident from the first few scenes itself that the film is about nuclear catastrophe and a possible World War 3 that can only be prevented by Washington’s character. There are also clear hints of time travel. Fans of Robert Pattinson would probably be disappointed as it seems he has a supporting role, whereas Washington is clearly front and center of the film. I will leave it for you to make further interpretations of the trailer.
