Christopher Nolan’s talents as a director are certainly well-established, given his celebrated body of work, including films like “Dunkirk,” “Interstellar” and the still iconic representation of DC’s laughing villain Joker in “The Dark Knight.” When it comes to his future work though, only the secretive title “Tenet” seems to be planned.

However, not only will more information be revealed relatively soon, but an IMAX prologue is even on the way for the project. Stipulated by Trailer Track, the upcoming prologue will be showcased before screenings of the highly anticipated “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” which is set to premiere on December 20.

This would mirror 2017’s “Dunkirk” IMAX feature, which was showcased in front of the “Star Wars” spin-off “Rogue One.”

“Tenet” thus far features a talented cast of individuals, such as “Ballers” star John David Washington, the new Batman himself Robert Pattinson, original “Thor” director Kenneth Branagh, Elizabeth Debicki from “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, and Nolan film veteran Michael Caine. The overall plot of the film still remains highly classified.

Though it’s as of yet still a rumor, Pattinson is believed to be the villain in Nolan’s upcoming film. In an interview with USA Today, Pattinson explained how phenomenal and spellbinding the “Tenet” screenplay was to him upon his first read.

He says, “I got locked in a room to read the script—I don’t have it myself…I’ve been a little wary of doing big movies for years and years, but there’s just something about Chris Nolan’s stuff. He seems like the only director now who can do what is essentially a very personal, independent movie that has huge scale. I read the script and it was unreal.”

“Tenet” releases in July 2020.
