Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.
In a twilight world of international espionage, an unnamed CIA operative, known as The Protagonist, is recruited by a mysterious organization called Tenet to participate in a global assignment that unfolds beyond real time. The mission: prevent Andrei Sator, a renegade Russian oligarch with precognition abilities, from starting World War III.

Elizabeth Debicki insisted on auditioning for her role, despite director Christopher Nolan offering her the part without one. It was important to her to know that she could do what he was looking for, and according to the director she came in and blew everyone away. See more »
When the Protagonist inverts himself and drives the Saab, he initially drives it in reverse-gear to go forward. A moment later the car slows down and the tires roll forward, which means he is driving normally. See more »
Well, I've always known I was a little slow to the party but this movie was hard to follow! It might have been the cinema sound mix but my wife and I kept asking each other what they were saying.. the script was hard to hear let alone understand in its abstract form.. we got the gist of the concept but was still hard to piece everything together in the end! I think it's a movie that requires a few watches to wrap ya head round it, but then again i am a little slow.. lol
