Tenet movie: Robert Pattinson, Christopher Nolan tease SECRET film ‘It’s not time travel’

This July sees Christopher Nolan’s latest movie Tenet released in cinemas. That is, of course, assuming movie theatres are reopened in some capacity by then. Very little is known about the new film and now the director and star Robert Pattinson have teased a little more.

On Tenet’s plot Pattinson, said he struggled to understand it himself but revealed: “This thing, it’s so insane.

The 33-year-old revealed how the huge crew flew around the world together.

The new Batman star, called Nolan’s special effects “crazy” and added: “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.”

Despite Pattinson saying Tenet isn’t a time travel movie, the film’s behind-the-scenes book description appears to tease time is still a key theme.

The book is called The Secrets of Tenet: Inside Christopher Nolan’s Quantum Cold War and is listed on Amazon.

The description reads: “FROM DIRECTOR CHRISTOPHER NOLAN comes a mind-blowing espionage thriller so unique that audiences will puzzle over its intricacies for years to come.

“The Secrets of Tenet takes readers on an exclusive journey into Nolan’s time-bending masterpiece, offering rare insights into all aspects of its creation.”

It adds: “Featuring in-depth commentary from Nolan himself and a range of other key collaborators—including producer Emma Thomas and production designer Nathan Crowley—The Secrets of Tenet delivers an essential masterclass that lays bare the director’s process and his singular creative vision.

“Illustrated with candid behind-the-scenes imagery and compelling conceptual art, this is the ultimate exploration of a film guaranteed to linger in the imagination long into the future . . . and perhaps the past.”

Nolan loves to mess around with time in different ways in his movies from Memento and Inception to Interstellar and Dunkirk, so no doubt a fresh take on the theme will be seen in this film.

Tenet is released in UK cinemas on July 17, 2020.
