Christopher Nolan's 'Tenet' trailer is proof the John David Washington film is going to be another time-bender
'Tenet' trailer has just been released on Fortnite. Although the trailer still doesn’t have a release date, the studio has added Tenet’s original July 17 release date back to its marketing materials
The details of Christopher Nolan's 'Tenet' were so fiercely kept under wraps that even the actors weren't sure about the plot. The trailer for the film just dropped on Fortnite, and fans are scrambling to put the pieces of the spy-thriller together. Unlike other trailers, that explain the entire plotline in three minutes, Nolan played it extremely safe. So, if you don't know what's happening in the trailer, it's perfectly understandable.
The film has elements of 'Memento' and 'Inception' and promises to be quite the mind-bender. Mystery? Check. Sci-fi? Check. Killer special-effects? Double-check. John David Washington seems to be playing a time traveler, who is a spy as well as a military operative. He is in cohorts with Robert Pattinson, who has some unusual plans, which include a plane crash. All this has something to do with a test, that doesn't have many survivors. "That test you passed?" Martin Donovan's character says to him at one point. "Not everybody goes. Welcome to the afterlife." The mission is to stop World War III and the password is Tenet. This is so that people actually take him seriously. In one of the scenes, Washington stares at a glass that is ridden with bullet holes but says the shooting hasn't happened yet. This film is going to wreck our minds for sure with its plotlines of bending time and space. Get ready for another thrilling ride. Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine also star in this film.
Nolan is known for his dark and intense films such as 'The Dark Knight trilogy', 'Inception' and 'Dunkirk'. In the past, he has established himself as one of the most stellar directors, and fans eagerly await his films.
'Tenet' doesn't specify a clear release date, due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the speculation is strong that it will release on July 17, 2020. This release could also be a signal for Hollywood to release the rest of the big films that were stalled due to the pandemic, like 'Mulan', 'The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run', and 'Wonder Woman 1984'.
