Like I said; movies are not the same as they used to.
The film directors are lacking imagination and creativity.

Reading comments on Tenet is entertaining.

* I was to start a thread on the new films of 2020, but after watching couple dozens trailers of the most recent new releases I simply wasn't enthralled @ all...so I just gave up.

I hit the end of my rope. Batman doesn't do it anymore, Wonder Woman the same, Suicide Squat, Venom, ...all those comics that keep shooting excessive sequels with a zero value (brain and box office). A pandemic can easily do that.
Without the money incentive everything goes down the toilet bowl.

Tenet can't even suggest an exit door, a miracle, a vaccine for tomorrow ...
...From my readings. And I lost my appetite for restaurants and theaters.
Tenet I got the feeling that it might be released on 4K Blu-ray before year's end.
Good enough for me...there's no rush. Meanwhile I'm highly entertained with dogs, cats and wildlife...all that jazz, and it's no movie.

What I do more is listening to music. So Tenet music soundtrack ...

I feel bad about Tenet being so good but turning out to be a box office dud due to Covid. It may not be visually jaw dropping like interstellar or inception but it is definitely a solid 9 /10 and has an interesting and inexplicably fictional premise and intentionally challenging screenplay. Producers should have delayed the film release like all other production houses have done given the unprecedented times. I wish more people go and see it, if not for anything else than, to encourage Nolan to continue on his daring path of creating mind benders and securing finances to future big budget sci-fi genre. We were the only two people watching the film in a 150 seater imax auditorium; felt guilty about the waste of energy and resources, but what the heck, it was a great experience and some people pay for this privilege in better times.

$250 million globally during a pandemic; I find it extraordinary.
I can wait ...

* The last film I saw @ a IMAX theater was 1917, with approximately twenty moviegoers total in the theater. That was @ the start of the pandemic.
It made $385 million globally, with a budget of roughly $90-100 million (Wiki).

I just watched the trailer so far. Opening scenes in the movie was shot a stone throw from my house. Whole city was a shit show for two weeks last summer when the film crew was here.

given the production and marketing cost being in the range of $400m it might not recoup the cost. I saw somewhere Nolan stating no green screen usage in the movie, fully old school natural FX.
