Everything is being dialled up for Tenet, with just over 5 weeks to go until it is released on July 30, the stakes are extremely high not only for an epic event level movie, but also for the re-opening of movie theatres as the world moves forward and takes another back to normality following the COVID-19 crisis.
Tenet has recently had a massive spread thanks to Entertainment Weekly, and audiences were also offered a unique look into the film thanks to a special interview with stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki, where the three performers sat down to talk about their experience working together and with the film’s director Christopher Nolan.
Watch the full interview below:
It’s clear from watching this interview that Washington, Pattinson and Debicki all have tremendous chemistry together and that this helped to create an incredibly joyful and fun atmosphere that made Tenet a joy to work on. Each of the performers shone and attention and light on the other’s performance, and it’s again another tribute to Nolan’s knack for casting.
There was also considerable praise from the cast for director Christopher Nolan, and the offer and experience to get to work alongside him for Tenet. “Working with Christopher Nolan was a dream,” said John David Washington. “I haven’t seen the film yet, so I gotta make sure I made it first, y’know if I’ve made the cut, then it’ll be that much more enjoyable.”
Debicki who portrays the film’s mysterious female lead also echoed Washington’s sentiment when it came to working with Nolan, “I still sort of can’t believe that I have gotten the chance to work with THE Christopher Nolan.”
Describing the experience of the film, Washington said “it seemed like the film was taking on different personalities based on the locations that we were on. I have to say too, because of the relationships Chris, Mr Nolan, developed with his team there’s a sense of like we know what to do already, at the same time there’ a great sense and feeling of discovery, and the unknown. That’s what I live for to sort of get comfortable, to get to know un-comfort and welcome it with open arms and find some great things artistically in the way in which we express ourselves in front of the camera.”
Here’s the official synopsis for Tenet:
Armed with only one word – Tenet – and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a mysterious secret agent (John David Washington) journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.
Tenet will arrive in cinemas on July 31.
