Dimple Kapadia starrer Tenet, is said to be the ace director Christopher Nolan's most ambitious film. After winning Oscar nominations for war drama Dunkirk, the maker has returned to his science fiction roots. Tenet's story is still under wraps, the first trailer provides few answers and raises many questions.
Based on international espionage and shot in seven countries, Tenet is set to be a visual spectacle. It stars a hugely acclaimed cast, including John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh, Michael Caine, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Clemence Poesy.
Talking about his 11th film, Nolan had earlier revealed to Entertainment Weekly that the film will cross several genres. He said, "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."
The Tenet trailer, which was released on December 19, backs this statement.
In Tenet, we see glimpses of a suspense thriller based in a world of science fiction. Little light is shed on the details but bits of the story are revealed. After passing the test of loyalty John David Washington's character is welcomed to the afterlife. He is then tasked with the prevention of the Third World War, which is said to be worse than a nuclear holocaust. John is often seen alongside Robert Pattinson throughout the trailer. The two are in a world where the time flies differently for them than their surrounding.
The look and feel of the trailer appears to be more influenced by his previous 2010 sci-fi thriller Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Along with Mumbai's skyline, John can be seen travelling to several different locations. Other characters shown in the trailer seem to be aiding John at his mission, and one of them is Dimple Kapadia, who can be seen saying, "You have to start looking at the world in a new way".
