Tenet Plane Crash

While the world waits to see if Christopher Nolan‘s new film Tenet will actually make it to theaters in July, part of the usual marketing blitz is still happening thanks to magazines who need to publish the stories they planned out months in advance. In this case, not only are we getting a handful of new Tenet photos, but we’re learning that director Christopher Nolan actually crashed a real 747 airplane for a key action sequence in the movie. But not from the sky. It’s not quite that dramatic. Read More »

tenet trailer breakdown new

The new Tenet trailer is here (after debuting in…*checks notes*…Fornite), and to put it bluntly, it rules. Action-packed, full of stunning visuals, and, since it’s a Christopher Nolan movie, mysterious as hell. While this trailer reveals the most about the film so far – for instance, it’s not about time travel, even though it sure looked like it was – it’s still shrouded in secrecy. In an attempt to figure out what the heck is going on here, I’ve compiled a Tenet trailer breakdown, just for you. So put on your cool suit and oxygen mask, and get ready to communicate with the future.

the batman production

There are a few guarantees in Hollywood: movie stars will rise and fall, everything will get a reboot or sequel, and there will always be a Batman — usually played by the latest handsome, brooding actor du jour. When the cape and cowl has been inhabited so many times, how can any actor hope to make an impression, especially when past iterations played by Michael Keaton and Christian Bale are so beloved? That’s something that Robert Pattinson had to wrestle with when boarding The Batman as the newest Caped Crusader.

Pattinson was a bit of an unexpected choice, considering the British actor seemed deathly allergic to fame and blockbusters in the aftermath of the young-adult vampire series that put him on the map, choosing instead to forge his post-Twilight career path with a series of increasingly weird arthouse flicks. But that particular challenge of putting his own spin on a character that’s been around for 80-plus years is exactly what drew Pattinson to the role, the actor revealed.

tenet time travel

There’s no simple, straightforward answer for a Christopher Nolan movie. His films have been subject to endless theories and speculation, particularly before they come out. His upcoming feature film Tenet is no exception — very little is known about the mysterious action thriller starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson, which has only released one frustratingly cryptic, but very cool-looking, trailer.

But Pattinson is debunking at least one theory about Nolan’s movie: time travel. According to Pattinson, there’s no time travel in Tenet, despite the trailer hinting at some time-warping effects. So if not time travel, what is Tenet about? New supplementary material describes Tenet as Nolan’s “quantum Cold War” movie, which suggests a whole host of possibilities. Read More »

The Batman metal chest

Batman has seen a wide variety of big screen takes from directors Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher, and Christopher Nolan. Now it’s time for Matt Reeves to take the Batmobile for a spin, and even though we’re getting a reboot of The Dark Knight franchise with Robert Pattinson stepping up to put on the cape and cowl, the director says The Batman isn’t an origin story. But the movie will still acknowledge Bruce Wayne’s origins, especially since we find him at a time when he’s “majorly struggling.” Read More »
