Christopher Nolan’s Tenet Will ’Push The Boundaries Of Cinema’


During a recent interview promoting his new movie A Million Little Pieces, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson was asked about Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. While he has clearly been sworn to secrecy, his enthusiasm was palpable. “I love Christopher Nolan movies,” he said. “When there was an opportunity to try to go for a role in any one of his movies, I’ve been the first person to have my hand up, saying, ‘Let me try.’ I was very fortunate and lucky to have been accepted into the cast of Tenet. John David Washington is phenomenal and incredible, and a wonderful, genuine guy. He’s gonna be a star. Robert Pattinson is brilliant and great. I loved working with him.”

As for the experience of working with Nolan, Taylor-Johnson has nothing but praise. “Working with Nolan is working with a legend,” he explained. “It’s about being able to stand back and observe how his mind works. How he is, as a filmmaker, and how he puts his films together is quite extraordinary. There’s no expense spared. He’s definitely trying to push the boundaries of cinema, in high concepts and sci-fi concepts, and the cinematic side of things is extraordinary to watch. It was a real honour and pleasure to be in his presence, and to work on that movie. But to be honest, there’s nothing else I can really say about it.”

Tenet arrives in theatres on July 17, 2020.
