John David Washington in Sci-Fi Action/Thriller Tenet
John David Washington stars in the sci-fi action/thriller “Tenet.” You may have seen Washington in the HBO comedy series Ballers. In addition, he also starred in Spike Lee’s crime film BlacKkKlansman. Tenet is written and directed by Christopher Nolan.
The international cast of “Tenet” also includes Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Martin Donovan, Fiona Dourif, Yuri Kolokolnikov, Himesh Patel, Clémence Poésy, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, with Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.
Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real-time. Not time travel. Inversion.
Nolan wrote and directed the film, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 70mm film to bring the story to the screen. “Tenet” was filmed on location across seven countries.
Nolan’s behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema, production designer Nathan Crowley, editor Jennifer Lame, costume designer Jeffrey Kurland, visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson, and special effects supervisor Scott Fisher. The score is composed by Ludwig Göransson.
Initial thoughts after watching the trailer
This Sci-fi Action film looks very intriguing. With Christopher Nolan [Memento (2000), Insomnia (2002), The Prestige (2006), and Inception (2010)] involved we know we are in for some unique storytelling and filming. Also looking forward to watching John David Washington in this film.
