Breaking News:

Details have been scare — no surprise — yet a few golden nuggets of information have just been revealed about Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming cinematic mind-bender. The film will be titled ‘Tenet’ and, according to the Hollywood Reporter, will have an intriguing premise from the writer and director famous for his imaginative stories filmed with innovative large-scale practical effects (‘Inception,’ ‘Interstellar,’ ‘Dark Knight Trilogy,’ ‘The Prestige’). 

“…is described as an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage.

Tenet is being filmed in seven countries, using a mix of Imax and 70mm film.” 

Yes, yes and YES!

Mr. Nolan is producing with his wife and longtime producing partner Emma Thomas and joining forces with Warner Bros. Pictures once again for this epic film centered on international espionage. Surely, there will be a twist (or two) in the story as well as a twist in the filmmaking process involving practical effects that will take the story — and cinema — to the next level.

The cast, of course, features the great Michael Caine. The rest of the cast includes several rising stars:

  • John David Washington
  • Robert Pattinson
  • Elizabeth Debicki
  • Kenneth Branagh
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson
  • Dimple Kapadia
  • Clémence Poésy

One notable absence from this announcement is a longtime friend and musical collaborator, Hans Zimmer. Reportedly, the film’s score will be brought to life by 34-year-old Swedish composer Ludwig Göransson (‘Creed,’ ‘Creed II,’ ‘Venom’).

Robert Pattinson, one of the movie’s lead actors, previously stated the following about the film last month in an interview, which was covered by AZ Central (Part of USA TODAY).

“Like, I’m doing a big movie with Christopher Nolan after this. It’s the craziest thing I’ve seen in years. It’s the length of three movies.”

The length of three movies, huh? Well, I guess I’ll splurge on the large soda for a prime-time sugar rush for opening night on July 17, 2020.

When do the IMAX tickets go on sale?
