Another international promo spot has been released for Christopher Nolan’s latest sci-fi action spy thriller, titled Tenet. The spot offers up a bit of new footage, and it also puts a spotlight on the film’s time inversion concept that still has yet to be fully explained.
The story for the film has mostly been shrouded in secrecy, and the fact that nothing has leaked out about it yet is pretty surprising. That will all change, though, when the movie hits theaters internationally before it’s released in the U.S.
Tenet has been described as a “mind-blowing espionage thriller so unique that audiences will puzzle over its intricacies for years to come.” It’s also said to be a “time-bending masterpiece” about a Quantum Cold War. This is the synopsis for the film:
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.
The movie stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.
The film is currently scheduled to arrive in U.S. theaters on September 3.
