The third and final trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming espionage thriller Tenet is out. The trailer, which is set to Travis Scott’s single The Plan, reveals more details about the plot, characters and showcases some great action and cool looking visuals.
This espionage thriller has John David Washington leading the cast as the agent working with a covert organisation looking to prevent Armageddon. The film employs a concept called inversion which plays with time and yet is explicitly not time-travel. This central concept, around which the entire film revolves, sounds fascinating and also looks great in practice, at least in trailers.
Watch the trailer of Tenet here:
The trailer is full of stunning things to show you. The action sequences look gritty and rooted. Visuals, especially in which time seems to go backwards, are really well-done. It looks like the sky-high budget (for a movie based on an original concept) of more than 200 million dollars was spent well.
We also see more of Kenneth Branagh’s villain, who so far appears to be a cardboard Russian gangster that’s pretty common in spy movies.
Branagh had earlier described the movie’s huge scale while speaking to Irish Times. He said, “This the fabric of the script weaves in so many characters across so many countries and layers of plot and meaning. The conceit is really bold. It’s one of those things that’s almost unique to Chris Nolan. It’s a massive, action-packed blockbuster that reads as a really personal movie with intellectual dazzle.”
The movie also stars Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, and Michael Caine.
Tenet releases in theaters on September 3, “where theatres are open.”
