*** My 4-star review ***
“What do you think we’re seeing?” asks the Protagonist (John David Washington). “The detritus of a coming war” is the response from Barbara (Clémence Poésy).
This final trailer – which features Travis Scott song The Plan – dives much more into time-travel. Bullets leaping from tables into clenched fists, a plane “un-burns” after a crash (or before, maybe).
Here’s the synopsis:
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 is out in the UK next Wednesday. (No I haven’t seen it! I’m assuming my press screening invitation has just plopped onto my virtual doormat sometime in the year 2145. I’ve booked to watch it on Wednesday morning at an actual cinema with my 11 year old though, and I’m hoping the clear-sightedness of the young will mean he can tell me what’s going on.)
The international cast of TENET includes Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Martin Donovan, Fiona Dourif, Yuri Kolokolnikov, Himesh Patel, Clémence Poésy, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.
