HOLLYWOOD – Eagerly awaited Tenet is almost two days long, according to reports.
Christopher Nolan‘s new film Tenet has a new running time: 46 hours 28 minutes. We learned the figure today from someone on twitter who has fifteen followers and an egg for an avatar. However, film twitter are going wild with the news.
We spoke with Christopher Nolan about his new film and the running time.
So Chris, two days.
Yes, almost that’s right. We think we need a large canvas. IMAX. Almost two days of running time. So bring a bag of crisps and a thermos.
And it’s about time?
Yes. It’s about inversion of time. And it’s about a bunch of people, a hit time of highly skilled professionals doing something that can very easily be read as a metaphor for film making and then everyone in the cinema will go ah! and nod. They work for the government in a kind of agency or something and they’re going to prevent something that’s worse than the apocalypse.
What’s worse than the apocalypse?
An aeroplane exploding!
But seriously. This is going to be my masterpiece. It’s like a Wagner film.
What Hart to Hart?
Not Robert Wagner you dolt.
Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine and Branagh.
