Warner Bros. has revealed the first details for Christopher Nolan’s next movie, which now has an official title: Tenet.
Christopher Nolan is directing Tenet from his own screenplay and using IMAX and 70mm film for the project. The highly-anticipated film is being described as “an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage.” It’s now filming on location across seven countries.
In Tenet, John David Washington leads a cast that also includes Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh. The movie is being produced by Christopher Nolan and his wife Emma Thomas, with Thomas Hayslip serving as an executive producer.
Hoyte van Hoytema (Interstellar) is working as the director of photography on Tenet while Ludwig Göransson (Black Panther) is composing the score. The rest of the behind-the-scenes team includes production designer Nathan Crowley (The Dark Knight), editor Jennifer Lame (Manchester by the Sea), costume designer Jeffrey Kurland (Dunkirk) and visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson (Mad Max: Fury Road).
Tenet is Christopher Nolan’s first movie since the 2017 WWII action-drama Dunkirk, which won three Academy Awards for Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Film Editing. The filmmaker is best known to comic book fans for directing the Dark Knight Trilogy starring Christian Bale.
Christopher Nolan’s Tenet opens in theaters on July 17, 2020. Stay tuned for more updates on the project.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
