The trailer for Christopher Nolan’s new movie Tenet leaked online, leading movie bosses scrambling to pull footage from social media.
The upcoming espionage thriller film written, directed, and produced by Nolan stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.
However, any plot details have been kept under wraps, with reports suggesting that not only was the movie filmed in reverse but is focused on time.
Cinemagoers in the U.S. who were waiting to see Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw were excited to be one of the first people to watch the 40-second teaser clip.
The trailer has yet to officially be released on the internet by studio Warner Bros., so bosses were quick to remove any footage filmed by fans and posted online on Friday, August 2, 2019.
According to The Blast, the teaser videos were scrubbed offline within an hour, and instead displayed messages of, ‘Video unavailable. This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner Bros. Entertainment’.”
One fan wrote on Twitter: “#Tenet teaser just played in front of #HobbsAndShaw. VERY short but built up well with the music. Quick looks at the characters and some action. It absolutely feels like a Nolan movie. I started to get chills just trying to imagine what this could be about. I’m PUMPED for 2020.”
The clip begins with leading man Washington inspecting two bullet holes in glass. “Time has come for a new protagonist,” the screen read as the BlacKkKlansman star is seen in riot gear. “Time has come for a new kind of mission.” It ends with Washington wearing an oxygen mask.
Tenet will be released in July next year (2020).
