Must Watch: TENET Trailer Teases Christopher Nolan’s Most Ambitious Film December 20, 2019 Time runs out. Finally, the first footage from Christopher Nolan’s time twisting espionage thriller has arrived. Check it out below. The super-secretive film stars John David Washington and Robert Pattinson as two international spies sent out to stop World War III from occurring at the hands of a mysterious threat, using the unique technology of time reversal. Also stars Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Clémence Poésy, with Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine rounding out the cast. “We’re jumping off from the point of view of an espionage film, but we’re going to a number of different places. We’re crossing a few different genres in a hopefully exciting and fresh way,” Nolan tells Entertainment Weekly. “[Producer] Emma [Thomas] and I have put together a lot of large-scale productions, but this is certainly the biggest in terms of international reach. We shot in seven countries, all over the place, with a massive cast and huge set pieces. There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made.” TENET opens in Irish cinemas on July 17, 2020.
