Christopher Nolan’s latest blockbuster Tenet is one of the most anticipated films of the year and is set to be one of the first films to aid the reopening of theatres around the world next month.
The beloved director, who is publicly a big advocate for the theatrical experience, recently sent a taped missive to CineEurope participants claiming Tenet is designed to be viewed on the big screen for the audience experience.
“We’re in the final throes of it,” Nolan explained. “I don’t want to say too much about it other than we’re extraordinarily excited about what we’ve been able to do with this material. I think of all the films that I’ve made, this is perhaps the one that is most designed for the audience experience, the big screen experience. This is a film whose image and sound really needs to be enjoyed in your theaters on the big screen and we’re very, very excited for you to see what it is we’ve done. We’ve made big films in the past, but this is a film whose global reach and level of action is beyond anything we’ve ever attempted before. I think we only would have been able to pull off this film with the level of experience we’ve had doing action films in the past.”
He added, “The movie has an incredible ensemble cast led by John David Washington who gives the most extraordinary and iconic performance as the protagonist at the heart of Tenet and I cannot wait for you guys to see what he’s done with his character. I’m very much looking forward to sharing the film with you. I’m going to get back to finishing it right now and I look forward to your reaction.”
However, fans are going to have to wait a while longer to watch Tenet as it was recently announced the film’s theatrical debut is delayed by two weeks from July 17th to 31st July. Whether or not there will be another delay currently remains to be seen.
