Tenet IMAX Feature Takes You Behind the Scenes

A new Tenet IMAX feature has arrived and has writer/director/producer Christopher Nolan, John David Washington (The Protagonist), and director of photography Hoyte Van Hoytema talking about shooting the movie with IMAX film cameras.

Continuing the longstanding partnership between IMAX and acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, sequences of Tenet were shot using 15 perf/70mm IMAX cameras. Tenet is the latest of Nolan’s trailblazing films also shot with IMAX cameras, including Dunkirk, Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

Nolan designed Tenet with IMAX in mind – capturing the film with IMAX cameras, among the highest-resolution cameras in the world, and also refining the film throughout post-production in an IMAX theatre to further optimize how audiences will experience the film in IMAX.

Exclusively in IMAX theatres, sequences shot with IMAX cameras will visually expand to fill the entire screen, allowing moviegoers to experience more of the image with unprecedented crispness and clarity.

Tenet began showing in select theaters on August 31st, three days ahead of its official September 3rd domestic release.

John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) 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. Not time travel. Inversion.

The film also stars Robert Pattinson (Twilight films, upcoming The Batman), Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, with Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh. Nolan wrote and directed the film, which was 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 film has been rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some suggestive references and brief strong language.
