Kenneth Branagh has said that even he isn’t sure if he’s playing the villain in Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. The film has already been known for being so mysterious that the cast themselves aren’t too sure what it’s about or what’s going on.
“I kid you not, I read this screenplay more times than I have ever read any other thing I have ever worked on. It was like doing the Times crossword puzzle every day, I would imagine. So my conversations with [Nolan] about my character were constant, because the character’s evolution was not set. It was a series of constant surprises.”Kenneth Branagh, Total Film
The recent trailer made Branagh’s character look as if he was going to be the villain – he’s a Russian national who is attempting to start World War III, even if audiences aren’t sure why. There are many questions surrounding the highly-anticipated film and Nolan is playing his cards close to his chest.
The biggest of all of these questions regarding Tenet is when it will actually be released. It has been intended to be released for the 17th of July but with lockdown measures in place due to coronavirus, it remains to be seen whether this will happen.
It will inevitably be pushed back until cinemas are safe to re-open again and people are more willing to attend but it will definitely not be released to VOD rental as many have chosen to do.
