Not many movies have seen such pressure and attention regarding its release date as Christopher Nolan’s upcoming ‘Tenet’.

When is it Releasing?
Other major blockbuster movies that were set to hit theatres before Christopher Nolan’s film have all been delayed with new release dates as studios ponder hard over whether people will really venture out to movie theatres.
Tenet is scheduled for a July 17, 2020 release. Even though Nolan has been desperately pushing for the film to air on the set date, it is highly possible it may be delayed deeper into 2020 or 2021 if the situation doesn’t improve.
The film is reportedly starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Kenneth Branagh.
What will be the plotline?
What we previously thought would be espionage meets Robert Pattinson successfully debunked time travel movie as he revealed that time travel is not a plot point in a GQ profile published in mid-May. A trailer has been released and from it, what we can gather is that Washington and Pattinson’s characters are working on a mission. A key word-tenet- is also mentioned which will help Washington get more information but also could lead him to a dangerous road.
From Nolan’s past movies- Inception, Interstellar and the most recent, Dunkirk, we know that this will be another mind-boggling epic, action-packed release that will have viewers clutching to the edges of their seats desperate to figure out how the movie will unravel.
