Prologue for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet arriving soon in IMAX theaters
According to Vital Thrills, Warner Bros Pictures is reportedly releasing a prologue for director Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming epic thriller Tenet with the MPAA officially granting it a PG-13 rating for “violence and intense action”. It is also heavily speculated that the Tenet prologue might be attached to the upcoming screenings of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on December 20.
In true Christopher Nolan fashion, the Tenet: Prologue is very likely to only be exclusive to IMAX theaters just like his previous films including: The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Dunkirk, which had all received an IMAX prologue treatment ahead of its scheduled release.
Tenet will be an international espionage thriller filmed across seven countries. John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) stars, with a supporting cast that includes Robert Pattinson (Good Time), Elizabeth Debicki (Widows), Dimple Kapadia (Fugly), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Rises) and Kenneth Branagh (Dunkirk).
The film, which is written by Nolan and will utilize a mixture of IMAX and 70mm film, which is something he’s become famous for. Nolan will produce Tenet along with his partner Emma Thomas with production currently underway. The movie is set to hit theaters on July 17, 2020.
The director first made an impact in 2001 with his indie film Memento. His next film, Insomnia, was also a modest hit. but it wasn’t until Batman Begins hit theaters in 2005 that Nolan became a box office force in his own right. The Prestige was Nolan’s last movie to gross under $200 million worldwide. His other films include The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Interstellar and Dunkirk.
