Christopher Nolan right now:
COVID-19 is not stopping Nolan from releasing his movie in theaters. You think he's going to let 'TENET' drop on a streaming platform, with all the over-the-air compression and bland sound quality? Not a fucking chance.
'TENET' is going to theaters first, no matter the obstacles. (NOTE: There is now no release date)
Fuck that poll! I want my big, insane blockbusters to hit the big screen. When it comes to a master like Christopher Nolan, whose worst movie is still better than the best movie from many creators, I want to see his releases in the format they're intended to be seen in.
'TENET' looks batshit insane. Nothing about this movie makes sense, and that is perfect!
There are two synopsis for the movie:
A secret agent is tasked with preventing World War III.
An action epic film evolving from the world of international espionage.
For those who got to see the extended clip from the movie in IMAX (it played before 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker'), you know that it's going to be another intense Nolan movie with wild music (not Hans Zimmer, but rising star Ludwig Göransson, who did 'Black Panther', 'Creed', 'Creed II', 'The Mandalorian', Childish Gambino's music, etc.), great sound design, crazy concepts of time, and much more. Even as a big Star Wars dweeb, I personally didn't love 'The Rise of Skywalker', but the 'TENET' preview before the movie made the second trip for that release a top-notch experience.
John David Washington is a great actor, and him playing a James Bond-like figure in a Nolan movie has me amped. Robert Pattinson is also about to show the mainstream world why he is great for the Batman role. I could go on and on, because I couldn't be more amped for this release.
When the hell will I even be able to see it? Not sure! And that sucks! Between this movie's likely delay and no 'Succession' Season 3 this summer, I am rather upset.
But positive vibes here today online, folks. This is coming out soon, I will see 'TENET' one way, or another, and absolutely cannot wait.
