Newest ‘Tenet’ trailer tells us it isn’t time travel — it’s inversion

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our coverage will be reduced. We can't wait to get back to serving you all of the latest fandom news as soon as we can.

The second trailer for Tenet gives us deeper look at Christopher Nolan’s newest mindbending film and shows off some impressive bits of time warping.

While the first trailer for Tenet focused on the international espionage storylines of the film but gave hints to some kind of time travel, this second trailer delves deeper into the nature of the use of time.

Turns out it’s not time travel — it’s something called inversion.

We still don’t know what that means exactly, but judging from the trailer, it does mean that we’ll get to see quite a few impressive set pieces.

Check out the second mind-bending trailer for Tenet below!

John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle Tenet.

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.

The international cast of Tenet also includes Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, with Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.

Nolan wrote and directed the film, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 70mm film to bring the story to the screen. Tenet is produced by Emma Thomas and Nolan. Thomas Hayslip served as executive producer.

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.

Tenet was filmed on location across seven countries.

The film is currently still set to debut in theaters on July 17th, and while all the official marketing materials — and the official Twitter account — still list that date, the trailer itself doesn’t list a release date.

With many of the theaters in the U.S. and worldwide still shuttered, it remains to be seen whether Tenet will indeed be released on that date.
