    Yeah, I can see where it can be hard to follow things when your shooting everything out order. Sometimes things can be easy to follow when your watching, than they are when you're reading a script.

    The time-reversing theme and the title being a palindrome make think it might actually be possible, though I'm not sure how you would actually pull it off since the dialogue would be gibberish played in reverse.

    Or would it? :eek:

    Reporter- Was crashing the plane part of your plan?

    Nolan-Yes....the sequence is on page 256

    Reporter-Oh......

    Trailer .gifs. That opera house scene is going to look amazing in IMAX. Some already saw it during a special IMAX prologue

    So they crashed the plane? The IGN article says they blew it up.

    Multiple sources are reporting that 'Tenet' will not meet it's July 17th release date and is being pushed back to July 31st or later; possibly affecting 'Wonder Woman 84' August 12th release date.
    Update: Wonder Woman 84 now moved to October 2.

    *Tenet.

    Not much of a delay, honestly. It should be pushed back later.

    Totally agree. The news it's being delayed is hardly surprising. It is surprising the delay is only two week's worth. As it is, I was starting to have doubts the theatres in my are would be open by July 17. Still not confident they'll be open two weeks later.

    Warner wanted to push Tenet back father, but Christopher Nolan insisted that it be released in July. I had been thinking that things would be at a point where there would be no problem opening things up in July, but seeing how bad things are getting now, I'm starting to think that might be a mistake. We started opening things up here in AZ earlier this month, and pretty much every day since things started opening we've set a new record for COVID-19 cases, and our hospitals are almost completely full.
    I understand Nolan is passionate about the theatrical experience, but I don't think it's worth risking people's health just to see a movie.

    From 'Deadline Hollywood' - Nolan will reportedly receive 20 percent of Tenet‘s first dollar gross, which means he gets a percentage of the box office revenue beginning with the film’s release rather than when the movie finally turns a profit. This is not the first time Nolan and WB have negotiated such as deal, but it is still a rarity typically reserved for upper-echelon filmmakers.
    All five of Nolan’s most recent films have grossed at least $525 million at the global box office. If that’s the floor for Tenet‘s earnings potential, Nolan could conceivably make a minimum of $105 million. If Tenet plays more like Interstellar ($665 million) or Inception ($832 million), he’s walking away with a stupefyingly large check. Such a lucrative deal puts even greater pressure on Tenet’s box office totals for Warner Bros. to walk away financially satisfied.

    In other words, it's about the money. Any date after July 31 and the percentage of his first dollar gross goes down.

    Oh, great. He's willing to encourage people to risk their lives so he can get richer. Suddenly I never want to see another Christopher Nolan movie.
