Starring John David Washington as the protagonist, ‘Tenet’ is a rambling sci-fi drama. The movie has not been released in the international market completely. But, the responses that it has been receiving from the audience and the critics until now are amazing. Warner Bros. had announced that the movie will not be released in the US. This decision was taken due to the shutdown of the majority of cinemas in the country owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Approximately, only 20% of the theatres and cinemas are operating. Hence, without delaying the strategy anymore or coming up with a new one, the production house decided to release the movie in 70 countries before the United States.
In the movie, the protagonist is assigned with an important job. He has to make strategies to save humanity from Armageddon. Armageddon is a radioactive element that appears to be a threat that might lead to World War 3. ‘Tenet’ is being considered as the finest work of Christopher Nolan. He is also known as the rare beast who has given the world cinema ‘Inception’. ‘Inception’ was a combination of science and heist with the addition of some mysteries that kept the audience glued to their seats. Critics were expecting that ‘Tenet’ would save the world cinema and will stream on OTT platforms wondering who will get to release the movie. The movie had a colossal budget of $200 million. It was designed to be watched on a big screen only. Watching in the cinema gives an amazing visual experience to the person watching the movie.
Who is Christopher Nolan?
Nolan has previously given us ‘Inception’ and ‘Interstellar’. Those movies are often called fictional more than science but ‘Tenet’ is quite different from both of them. The name of the movie insinuates the ethical code of conduct. John David unknowingly sets foot into the tenets of the secret society and then the timeline keeps on changing which is expected from a Nolan movie because his movies ask the viewers to keep on thinking concurrently. Nolan has been challenging the audience’s perception of time and has preconceptions. The critics have said that the plot can be predicted owing to the James Bond Vibe that it gives. Warner Bros. released the trailer for the movie on 22nd May, 2020 on their official YouTube channel. It has already crossed 27 million views. You can watch the trailer below.
Christopher Nolan stated that he has worked for more than 20 years on the ideas for ‘Tenet’. He also mentioned how he had spent almost 7 years working on the script. He did a lot of research and had read the script around more than a thousand times. Nolan is popular for the exceptional stories that he portrays and his amazing directing skills. His movies have grossed more than $4.7 billion on a global level. He has been nominated for 34 Oscar Awards and won 10 out of them. His movies take inspiration from time, memory, science, mathematics, and personal identity. ‘‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy, Insomnia’, ‘Interstellar’, ‘The Prestige’, ‘Dunkirk’, and ‘Inception’ are some of his finest works. We cannot seem to wait to watch ‘Tenet’ and how it does on the movie chart.
