I’m one of those guys who finds great comfort in the halls of cinemas, just like many of you. Prior to the Movement Control Order, I used to visit the cinema at least three times a week. Not only that, but I also think there’s no better way to watch a film than to be in a cinema. Seriously, I even prefer watching romantic comedies or more dialogue-heavy films, in the cinema more than at home. But of course, there are some movies that I’m more okay with watching at home than in the cinema. David Fincher’s upcoming biopic, Mank, for example, is one movie I would’ve loved to watch in theatres but am okay with watching at home, as well.
One movie we NEED to catch in theatres, though, by hook or by crook, is Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi action-thriller, Tenet. Since Batman Begins, all of Nolan’s movies beg to be caught on the biggest screen possible. Tenet, which was shot on 70mm and IMAX, is no different. But if that isn’t convincing enough, Christopher Nolan’s sermon at CineEurope certainly will be. Nolan shared the following with CineEurope participants (per ComicBook.com):
I don’t want to say too much about it other than we’re extraordinarily excited about what we’ve been able to do with this material. I think of all the films that I’ve made, this is perhaps the one that is most designed for the audience experience, the big screen experience. This is a film whose image and sound really needs to be enjoyed in your theatres on the big screen and we’re very, very excited for you to see what it is we’ve done. We’ve made big films in the past, but this is a film whose global reach and level of action is beyond anything we’ve ever attempted before. I think we only would have been able to pull off this film with the level of experience we’ve had doing action films in the past.
