Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is finally reaching Indian theaters. The film was released earlier this year in several major markets around the world, including North America and China, with disappointing box office counters.
Here’s everything we know about the big-budget action thriller, Nolan’s first film since 2017’s Dunkirk.
Who Made Tenet?
Christopher Nolan has written and directed Tenet. He also produced the film with his wife Emma Thomas through their production company Syncopy. Warner Bros, Nolan’s favorite studio since 2005’s The Prestige, is the co-producer.
Music, cinematography and editing
Ludwig Göransson composed the music for Tenet. Hans Zimmer, Nolan’s longtime collaborator, was unavailable since working on Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. Hoyte van Hoytema, who has worked with Nolan on Interstellar and Dunkirk, has held the camera. Jennifer Lame, whose recent credits include Marriage Story and Midsommar, edited Tenet.
John David Washington is the leading man. The film also stars Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh and our very own Dimple Kapadia.
What is Tenet about?
If Inception was about planting ideas in a man’s mind by invading his dreams, Tenet is about manipulating the flow of time. In particular, let it run in reverse. How? The trailers don’t make it clear, and that’s okay. Washington’s character called the protagonist is tasked with preventing World War III. Branagh’s Russian oligarch Sator is the villain, although we don’t know what his plans are. Probably the said world war starts?
Taking complex concepts and presenting them through fairly straightforward plots is something Nolan does very well. For example, take Inception’s dream sharing or Interstellar’s black hole and time travel.
Tenet will be released in India on December 4.
