Christopher Nolan's is back with a mind-boggling blockbuster ‘Tenet’

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.

Disney Plus steals ‘Once Upon A Time’ from Netflix

Disney Plus steals ‘Once Upon A Time’ from Netflix

The long-running TV series on ABC, ‘Once Upon A Time’ will soon be coming to Disney Plus on 18th September, 2020. All 7 seasons are going to be available on the platform.

Why did Disney Plus take the show from Netflix?

Disney Plus was eventually going to take the series as the show features many Disney characters. It portrays many characters like Snow White, Rapunzel, The Evil Queen, Elsa. There are some other characters also such as Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio, Robin Hood, Alice, and Jafar that have featured in different seasons. The story is adapted from some of the characters of ‘Fairy Tales’. Disney Plus is appraised as a streaming platform that is children friendly. A lot of movies and series are available on the platform without age discretion. But, on the other hand, Netflix is not a platform where there is any kind of age discretion. As a result, the series is more likely to be streamed on Disney Plus than Netflix.

The series was a great hit initially. Within the first two seasons, it amassed a viewership of approximately 10 million. But, as it progressed, the viewer count started reducing. Even then, Netflix released around 7 seasons consisting of a total of 155 episodes. The series was highly appreciated. It was even nominated for 7 Creative Arts Emmy Awards. It never won though as its competitor was ‘Game of Thrones’, one of the most popular and watched shows. Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are the creators of the American drama series. Fans are very much excited after this announcement. They will be able to binge ‘Once Upon A Time’ on Disney Plus from 18th September, 2020. You can have a look at the trailer of Season 7 for the show below.

What is the show about?

The story of the show is set in Storybrooke where Emma Swan along with Henry Mills, her 10 years old son is transported from the Enchanted Forest to the real-world town.
