Tenet (dir. Christopher Nolan, 2020)

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Per Deadline:

It also has added Michael Caine, Dunkirk‘s Kenneth Branagh, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Clémence Poésy to and ensemble cast topped by John David Washington along with Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki.

The film, Nolan’s first feature since 2017’s Oscar-nominated Dunkirk, is being described as an action epic evolving around the world of international espionage. He wrote the original screenplay and shooting spanning seven countries is now underway. The Tenet team includes Dunkirk‘s director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema (shooting in a mix of Imax and 70mm)

Which all seems rather involved for a biopic about Neil Tennant.

I can think of at least one film critic who will be darning and laundering his finest worn out wanking socks at the mere sight of new nolesy wolesy thread.

I'll bet it's significant that the title is a palindrome. Sadly.

What if at the midpoint of the movie it plays out in reverse for the remainder of its runtime, wouldn't that be something?

What if you get to the title screen and then out of nowhere an errant 'H' drops from the top of the frame into the title and before you know what happened you realize you're watching a remake.

It could be a decent and timely film ala Syriana if it really focuses on the guy who approved the CIA's rendition and secret interrogations/torture program.

things in every chuck nolan movie ever

1. oscar-winning actress playing a character with no motivation, whose sole purpose is to deliver exposition
2. The message of the movie is based on a proverb that the audience is familiar with. It is stated out loud by the main character, but is not actually supported by the internal logic of the film.

It's frustrating because it's largely his own fault. He'd likely be respected as a talented architect if he didn't simultaneously insist on demonstrating his inept construction skills. Sure, those buildings look pretty at first but they collapse every single time, mah dude.

Also galaxy brain conservative in his politics. I still haven't gotten over Batman as George W Bush wiretapping the entire city to stop The Concept of Terrorism embodied as the Joker.

Speaking of, I would like to wiretap multiplex ticket windows prior to the release of this film so that we can capture all of the variations of the title as uttered by movie patrons who may be less than familiar with the word.

So miniaturized time reversal pools or something.

I appreciate his general inclination of making small + intimate films but it's refreshing to see him branch out and go a little more high-concept for a change.

It's like Memento except the twist is (get this) the story moves forwards instead of backwards.

This reminds me of when I had to keep telling management in a draft PPM that the word is not "tenant."

The movie will be shit, of course.

I believe it's spelled 'shint'.

Tenet as the test of whether movie theaters can open this year.

The studio is pressing ahead with release plans for “Tenet,” the mysterious and much-anticipated new movie from “Inception” director and proven moneymaker Christopher Nolan. Executives are making plans to open the movie widely across the United States as scheduled on July 17 amid the ongoing spread of the coronavirus. They’re going through all the paces of a big summer release, despite many reasons a successful rollout may not be remotely possible.

Second trailer premiering tonight on...Fortnite.

This reminds me how when our company went out for financing, I kept having to correct "tenant" to "tenet" in all our materials

"proven moneymaker Christopher Nolan"

that would be about as generous an epitaph as he ever deserved tbf
