It looks like Tenet is still holding true to it’s global release date of July 16, and with the world slowly beginning to open up again, it looks like we might finally see it’s release up on the big screen.
In a recent interview with GQ, Tenet star Robert Pattinson opened up on the scope of Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster and said that gusses at the film’s time-travel narrative are far from being true, and that in reality this will be even more mind blowing than we first thought.
While he did keep pretty quiet on many major details, Pattinson did conclude that the film had a consistent crew of 500 on-set crew and that it’s filming locations including Denmark, Estonia, India, Italy, Norway, the UK and the USA, all had colossal set pieces filmed on them. “250 of them would all fly together, just hopping planes to different countries.” Pattinson said, “This thing, it’s so insane. And in each country there’s, like, an enormous set-piece scene, which is like the climax of a normal movie. In every single country.”
One of the biggest developments of Pattinson’s interview was him downplaying reports of time travel in the film. Of his still, secretive character, the actor said, “he’s not a time traveler. There’s actually no time traveling. That’s, like, the one thing I’m approved to say.”
Pattinson has discussed that he turned to celebrated thinker and author Christopher Hitchens in order to base his still mysterious character around. “I was so obsessed with watching Christopher Hitchens debates. You know Christopher Hitchens? A lot of my character stuff, I was trying to do a Chris Hitchens impersonation, and I completely forgot that I was doing that until I saw my notes. I’m so curious. I mean, I literally haven’t seen a frame of this movie.”
As to where Tenet goes narratively is anyone’s guess, but for the moment the bigger debate is that it is still sticking to its July 16, 2020 release. With no change yet, it’s likely that we’ll soon see a ramp up in marketing content in order to build a buzz for the film’s release.
Tenet will arrive in cinemas on July 16.
