The official runtime for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet has been revealed.

Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is expected to be the first blockbuster to open in theaters to push moviegoers back into multiplexes during the ongoing pandemic. Originally set to open on July 17th, Tenet has already been pushed back twice, with the film currently scheduled for mid-August. However, a recent report suggested that an August opening for Tenet seems unlikely at this point.

A new listing on the Korea Media Ratings Board has revealed that Christopher Nolan’s Tenet runs for 150 minutes, or two hours and 30 minutes. At 150 minutes, Tenet is much longer than the filmmaker’s last movie, Dunkirk, which had a running time of 107 minutes. Nolan’s longest project is still his 2014 sci-fi epic Interstellar at 169 minutes.

Here is the official synopsis for Tenet:

“John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle “Tenet.” Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion.”

Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, the film stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, and Himesh Patel. Christopher Nolan also serves as a producer alongside his wife Emma Thomas, with Thomas Hayslip on board as an executive producer.

Tenet is currently scheduled to hit theaters on August 12, 2020. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the movie and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content.
