This summer, the next film from Christopher Nolan arrives and this week an (unfortunately disappointing) massive blockbuster is arriving, which means it is prime time to drop the first trailer following a theatrical-only teaser earlier this year.
Starring John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, Robert Pattinson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh, Clémence Poésy, Dimple Kapadia, and Michael Caine, Tenet has been described as being set in the “world of international espionage.”
“We’re jumping off from the point of view of an espionage film, but we’re going to a number of different places,” the director recently told EW. “We’re crossing a few different genres in a hopefully exciting and fresh way. [Producer] Emma [Thomas] and I have put together a lot of large-scale productions, but this is certainly the biggest in terms of international reach. We shot in seven countries, all over the place, with a massive cast and huge set pieces. There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made.”
Shot by returning cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema, it’ll mark the first time Nolan teams with editor Jennifer Lame (Hereditary, Manchester by the Sea) and composer Ludwig Göransson (Black Panther) as Hans Zimmer is occupied with Dune.
Watch the trailer below.
Tenet opens on July 17, 2020.
