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?

Happy Monday!

If you can inject movie magic into your day, then it’s been a successful day. And if that magic is somehow related to composer Hans Zimmer and filmmaker Christopher Nolan, then your day will truly be memorable.

Case in point:

Kids say play the darndest things.

The 50-Year Space Odyssey

You’re about to enjoy a Throwback Thursday with a revamped trailer of 1968s signature science-fiction epic 2001: A Space Odyssey that will be re-released later this year in 2018.

“For the first time since the original release, this 70mm print was struck from new printing elements made from the original camera negative. This is a true photochemical film recreation. There are no digital tricks, remastered effects, or revisionist edits. This is the unrestored film – that recreates the cinematic event that audiences experienced fifty years ago.”
-Christopher Nolan 

When can we buy tickets (for a space odyssey)?

Happy Monday!

The ’80s and ’90s are never going away. Boomshakalaka! And in the tomorrow night’s brand new Roseanne episode, a special guest is making his return to the Conners house.

Johnny Galecki reuniting with Sara Gilbert is a modern-day Roseanne reunion via the ’90s, as well as a Big Bang Theory reunion from several years back, which is another mega-popular sitcom on a different major network for these two TV actors who remain desired talents for their new and beloved characters in the era of streaming and limitless channels and viewing options because of people’s nostalgia for the past in the present.

Did Christopher Nolan write and direct this Roseanne episode?
