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?
‘Ready Player One’ was an awesome movie experience–in 2D and 3D–visualized for the silver screen by legendary director Steven Spielberg from the literary imagination of Spielbergian author Ernest Cline. And the critical success, as well as the box office success, naturally sparks the question:
Will there be a ‘Ready Player Two’ film?
The comprehensive success of the film supports the notion of a sequel. Yes. But it’s the Oasis and what this wildly imaginative virtual world has become since the events of the first film or book (insert your storytelling preference here) that really justifies the necessity for an IMAX-sized sequel.
‘Ready Player Two’ with a bonanza of nineties pop-culture references?
The virtual world needs the Carlton dance and Kelly Kapowski.
Adrenaline rushes. Defying death. Doing the unthinkable. C’mon, it’s a Monday!
Fact: Tom Cruise doesn’t care what day it is.
(FYI – There’s one quick, but funny, F-bomb at 3:28)
Well, there’s always Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday…
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now (finally) in movie theaters.
Rest assured, Jimmy’s Daily Planet will not reveal any spoilers. With a prime viewing scheduled for tomorrow night, a general reaction to Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII will follow this Monday.
For now, a visual storytelling recap and promo for The Last Jedi.
Will The Last Jedi be the darker Dark Knight equivalent to The Force Awakens? If so, then this cinematic universe has the potential to become even more epic than before…
and Star Wars, as you know, is already sufficiently epic. There’s a short preview of a spoiler-free review.
