New Trailer For Christopher Nolan's 'Tenet' Confirms The Movie Will Hit Theaters At Some Point

Movie fans had many projects they were looking forward to seeing this summer, but one of its staples was going to be a new time travel film from Christopher Nolan. But of course the COVID-19 pandemic has made the chances of the film's release in theaters this July seem less and less likely, but the director who has been vocal about wanting audiences to see his movies on the big screen had been persistent Tenet will still get that very treatment. The movie still holds it July 17th release date while other big project have completely vacated the next three months of release dates, but it still remains unclear if it will eventually be moved as well.

Below is the trailer for Tenet:
As for the film itself it definitely gives off a vibe most similar to Nolan's classic Inception, but this time dealing with inversion and time travel rather than dreams. Nolan is well known for not giving away too much about the movie's plot in his trailers, so of course its hard to really figure out everything going on here (Which makes it really hard to right an article about, but I'll give it a shot). What we do know is John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) will be the main protagonist who is being brought in to learn about these methods of time travel through experts like Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson's characters.

Like Inception, it seems that the film will see a sort of team of characters form including Debicki, Pattinson, Michael Caine, and Himesh Patel (Yesterday). Nolan has once again assembled an impressive ensemble of young actors here, and really has only brought back one of his frequent collaborators with Caine. Kenneth Branagh will clearly be playing the movie's main villain who is a Russian bent on starting World War III, and who wants to acquire the Tenet technology. 

We also get a look at some major action set pieces, including a chase scene in a theater that feels like it came right of Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. There's also the car chase scene where time is reversed that we saw in the first trailer, as well as a scenes of a plane being crashed into a building which Pattinson's character jokes about at the end. Knowing Nolan's love of practical effects, it shouldn't come as a surprise that most of these scenes are real and just make the movie even more appealing to film fanatics. 

So what did you think of the Tenet trailer? Do you have any theories about what the movie could be about? Do you think it will get a new release date soon? Let us know below!
