Christopher Nolan loves to play with the minds of his fans. And sometimes also with your patience. The director of Origin and Interstellar is given to enter the darkest and convoluted recesses of the human mind, and the new advance (to call it somehow) of Tenet, his next film, seems to confirm that the tape will go in that same line .

A few black letters on a white background. Then the colors are reversed. The palindrome Tenet is read. It turns on itself. You can read the same wherever you look. The video takes almost half a million views. Is it an encrypted message or a heavy joke? The fans, perplexed, ask to know more, because this pill knows very little.
The tweet has been launched from the new official account of the film, which already confirms the release date and only has this message on its board of publications:
What will be the plot? We only know that it will be a spy thriller that will operate internationally. Some followers have speculated that it is a secret sequel to Origen, but they remain that: speculation. The only thing confirmed is that it will premiere on July 17, 2020, in what promises to be the summer bombshell.
Nolan also confirmed that he would shoot an introductory short film to explain the history of the film, something similar to what he did with The Cobol Job of Origin. Another clue as to the possible relationship between both works?
Tenet will star Denzel Washington’s son, John David Washington (Infiltrated in the KKKlan), which many have already seen in leaked images of the film. Very select rooms showed the actor in several exclusive clips as a promotion, but these fragments have not been slow to spread through the network. Some experienced digital navigator can find them easily. In the images you can see the actor in a suit, placing his hand on what looks like bullet holes in a glass. A tense repetitive and growing music sounds in the background. It seems that there will be a lot of action on Tenet.
David Washington will be accompanied by Robert Pattinson (The Lighthouse, Twilight), Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy, Everest), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Captain America: Winter Soldier), Kenneth Branagh (Dunkirk, Hamlet) and Michael Caine (The Dark Knight, The Footprint). A cast with big stars that only manages to increase the mystery around Tenet.
