Being confused by Christopher Nolan’s work has been our state of being for quite some time. We’re still trying to recollect the ending of Memento and zone out and think about the ever-spinning top from Inception every so often. According to Robert Pattinson, Tenet is really going to blow our minds too. Here’s how The Batman described the script (without spoilers, of course):
Yeah, that sounds like a Christopher Nolan movie. Robert Pattinson called the upcoming summer blockbuster a “magic trick” that completely surprised him. He teased to Entertainment Weekly how the film plays with a number of genres and takes multiple unexpected turns. From our angle, Tenet is going to be a globe-trotting espionage film, but what else could it be? Nolan has doubled down on explaining that it is not a “time travel film” but it is centered around this concept of time inversion.
Robert Pattinson elaborated on his initial impression of the Tenet script with these words:
Wow, we cannot wait! Thankfully, Tenet is just one month away from hitting theaters… unless it somehow gets delayed again at the last minute. The studio reportedly wanted to move the film way back, but Christopher Nolan pushed for his movie to be one of the first major releases to hit theaters after months of closures.
Tenet will be mainly about John David Washington’s mysterious character as he gets approached to assist with preventing World War III somehow. Robert Pattinson will be an “important” supporting character who is, according to Christopher Nolan, named Neil, but the writer/director also threw in this shady description about the role:
Chris Nolan, it’s your character! How don’t you know? Either way, get ready to be confused and intrigued. It’s pretty much what the Interstellar filmmaker does best. Tenet is his most ambitious film yet, taking place in many exotic locations and costing over $200 million to produce. Nolan totally crashed an actual 747 during the making of the film, who knows what else is in store?
Robert Pattinson is gearing up for a heck of a year as a movie star, not only with the release of Tenet, but when he suits back up for The Batman soon in London. The production featuring Zoe Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright and Colin Farrell is getting ready to resume ahead of its fall 2021 release date. Check out Tenet in theaters on July 31.
YA genre tribute. Horror May Queen. Word webslinger. All her writing should be read in Sarah Connor’s Terminator 2 voice over.
