The first reactions to Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, courtesy of an internal IMAX screening, have emerged.
Fans of Christopher Nolan movies have been waiting very patiently through all the delays to Tenet‘s release due to the pandemic. Thankfully the sci-fi blockbuster now has new release dates so it shouldn’t be too long before we get to see the much-anticipated film.
In the meantime, we have got the first reactions to the film, thanks to an internal screening of Tenet for IMAX employees. Speaking on a Wall Street conference call (via Deadline), IMAX CEO Rich Gelfond said:
“Several people at Imax were involved with Tenet at the post-production phase. Their reaction was, ‘Oh my God – I forgot how great it was to be in a movie.’ Tenet is just a beautifully filmed, beautifully made, wonderful movie. … It wasn’t just one person, at one age. It was a number of IMAX employees who spontaneously said that to me.”
Nolan has a long history and close relationship with IMAX – with Tenet being shot entirely with IMAX equipment – so it’s not surprising that employees got their own screening. Hopefully, their positive reactions will be replicated by audiences around the world very soon.
Armed with only one word – Tenet – and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real-time. Not time travel. Inversion.
Tenet sees Christopher Nolan directing a cast that includes John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.
Tenet is set to arrive in 70 markets on August 26th, including the United Kingdom. It will come to the United States on September 3rd.
