Love me some Nolan!

Also love me trailers that dont give away the whole plot.

Tenet spelled backwards is Tenet, I wonder if this will have some significance in the film.

I first thought that this was Nolan's first straight forward thriller until that car scene. Hopefully he hasn't gone up his own arse again because when he's on point he's the best in the business.

A Christopher Nolan film that messes with time? Surely not.

Tenet? Telephone internet? 14.4?!

Woah. I could see where this might be going. Brilliant!

Looks complicated which will probably ruin his film as usual.

Expository dialogue dump incoming. Shame because he has the chops to be another Frankenheimer.

This is a genuine question, mate, and not a wind-up: I watched the car scene and saw nothing unusual - what did I miss?

It flips back over in reverse time, and then in the next scene with the bullet holes he says "it hasn't happened yet" before the soldier/swat guy comes flying through the sliding door in reverse.

There's also the bit earlier where the boat is going forward but it's been reversed whilst he's still doing pull ups in normal time.

I wonder if this is a world where time is starting to deteriorate through terrorist attacks. You know; they set off a bomb that causes time to go into reverse with the intention of ultimately degrading the space time continuum. Which is why sometimes everything seems normal but in others every object we use goes in reverse, and in extreme cases absolutely everything except our "protected" heroes is backwards.

Or maybe the enemy has magic powers. feck knows, it's Nolan.

Yes, that's just what I was thinking.
Also, I am a lying moron.

Looks a lot like the root of it will be based around retrocausality. More localized and much more 'immediate' than how it was mentioned in Interstellar, in which it's barely touched on tbf. AKA going into/manipulating visually localized pockets of reversed spacetime to affect/adjust the past (and thus future). AKA affecting the past from the present.

They'll have a good scene where they first illustrate it to the audience. Lot of ways to do that visually/mechanically.

From there it can (and will by nature) still heavily involve more 'conventional' time-travel/causality as well, but they kind of did all of that in Interstellar and it seems unlikely they'd retread all that ground.

I don't care what anyone says, I think Nolan is a fantastic director. Interstellar is probably my favourite movie of all time. Other than one or two scenes, that movie is absolute perfection.

Can't wait for this.

Looks like the plot of International Assassin.
It actually does, doesn’t it? The gun in his back in a hotel room, ‘welcome to the afterlife’, the suits chasing after him. At the very least it seems like Nolan has taken some inspiration.

The latest trailer just debuted on... Fortnight. Did no one catch it? Looks incredible! No release date though.

Whoah, that's actually true
For anyone that doubts it:

The word: TENET

The letters: T¹ E¹ N¹ E² T²

Anagrams:
T¹ E² N ¹E¹ T²
T¹ E² N¹ E¹ T²
T² E¹ N¹ E² T¹,
T² E² N¹ E¹ T¹


It's actually remarkable how many anagrams of TENET you can make from TENET.

Nolan is a galaxy brain, I don't know how he comes up with this stuff.

less interested in this now, I'm usually a big fan of his films but this looks a little cliched
