NEW TRAILER: Christopher Nolan’s TENET

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Summer has always been my favorite season. I love spending an afternoon, sitting under a shady tree, reading a good book or graphic novel. I love going to Cape Cod as often as I can and enjoy the beautiful beaches. Most of all, I love SUMMER MOVIE SEASON. They may not always be the most high brow of films, but Big Summer Blockbusters have always been and always will be, my favorite kind of movies. It’s purest form of the moviegoing experiences. You get your hot popcorn, a cold drink, and hopefully, the world outside of the theatre falls away for a few hours. You can put you problems and worries aside and take a trip to Gotham City or an island resort where cloned dinosaurs roam or a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… and if anyone understands the cinematic magic of the Summer Blockbuster, it’s Christopher Nolan. The best Summer Blockbusters don’t only offer amazing spectacle, but gripping, fleshed out characters and stories as well. To quote Will Smith, Nolan has become a master of “Popcorn and Prestige” filmmaking. The trailer for his new film Tenet, has dropped and it sure looks like a blast!

Tenet Director, Christopher Nolan

Starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Michael Caine, Tenet looks to be a thrilling spy film with time travel thrown into the mix. Watch the trailer here and let me know what you think….

Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, Summer Movie Season 2020 is a bust. Most theatres are still closed and only a few movies like Wonder Woman: 1984 are keeping their current summer release dates. While other movie studios and filmmakers are pushing their movies back to next summer or releasing their films on streaming services or On Demand. Come Hell or high water, Christopher Nolan is determined to release Tenet THIS YEAR, IN MOVIE THEATERS. Though originally scheduled for a 7/17/20 release date, it’s possible Nolan may push back the release date to ensure a larger audience. If I to bet on it, I’d say movie end up will hitting theaters in August or November. If they’re not going to stick to the original release date, these are the 2 most logical months for such a high profile project (and Nolan will still be able get the movie in theaters before the end of the year). I suppose we’ll have to wait and see. I know I’m excited!

TRAILER: Christopher Nolan’s TENET!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Before we get started I have to throw a controversial opinion out there: More often than not, I dislike the work of Christopher Nolan. I know what you’re gonna say “How fucking DARE YOU?!“. Well, put down your pitchforks for a second and hear me out. 

Director Christopher Nolan

     Without a doubt, Christopher Nolan is a great filmmaker. In fact, I’d go so far to say he’s the closest thing we have to a modern day Spielberg. Like Spielberg, Nolan is able to tap in to that formula of “Popcorn and Prestige“. Coined by Will Smith, “Popcorn and Prestige” refers to movies that are both critical and commercial successes. These are films that appeal to mass audiences, but also get serious recognition during award season. Nolan and Spielberg are the only directors I can think of that embody that idea more. Both filmmakers have a lot of Oscar notches under their belts, but those very same films are often huge audience hits as well.

    For me at least, when it comes to Nolan’s movies, The Dark Knight is where the line in the sand is drawn. Up to and including The Dark Knight, I really loved his films. However, after The Dark Knight, I’ve usually disliked Nolan’s subsequent movies. Except Dunkirk which is fucking awesome. I’d like to point out that there’s a big difference between disliking a film and thinking its bad. I’m not saying movies like Inception or Interstellar are necessary bad movies, they just didn’t work for me.

  Now, we have Nolan’s new film Tenet hitting theatres later this year. Starring John David Washington (son of the legendary Denzel Washington) and Robert Pattinson (soon-to-be the latest actor to play The Dark Knight Detective himself, Batman). Though he only has a few roles in major projects under his belt, John David Washington is a very talented actor and his star is on the rise. He’s best known for his work on the HBO series Ballers and his starring role in last year’s Spike Lee movie BlacKKKlansman. I have a feeling that if Tenet is a success (and let’s face it, with Nolan’s track record it probably will be), this will be a big breakthrough for Washington.

   Then there’s Robert Pattinson, anyone following his career at all over the last few years, knows that his talent lies far beyond playing a sparkly vampires in The Twilight Series. He’s currently getting rave reviews for his performance in The Lighthouse with Willem Dafoe. He’s a great actor who often gets unfairly written off as “the Twilight guy”. With Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine set to appear in the film, at the very least Tenet has a pretty solid cast going for it.

  Like most of Christopher Nolan‘s films, details about Tenet are being kept under wraps. What little we do know describes a action adventure/thriller involving espionage and time travel, which sounds pretty damn cool. take a look at the trailer right here:

Tenet opens on 7/17/20
