Christopher Nolan‘s “Tenet” remains one of the most anticipated films of the year. Nevermind the delays. Forget the uncertainty. Nolan’s film looks to be a doozy, and if its composer’s latest comments are to be believed, this is a movie that demands to be viewed from a multiplex seat. Our friends overseas will have to let us know how it is, considering it releases earlier there than in the pandemic-stricken US.
Speaking with Deadline about his work on “The Mandalorian,” composer Ludwig Goransson also opened up about “Tenet,” saying:
“It’s definitely been interesting to see how it all develops, and out of everything I’ve worked on, this is definitely an experience that you need to have in the theater. It seems like they’re opening up the theaters internationally first, and I think people need something like this right now. They need to watch something and experience something, to also be able to kind of get away for a little bit. There’s so many levels to it, and so much to take in. I can’t wait to see how people react to it.“
Goransson continued, expressing his awe at how deeply Nolan understands music, and how powerful the music of his previous films still is.
“I know from watching his films how savvy he is with music, how much he understands it, but I didn’t fully know that he could speak about it almost like a trained musician. So, I was blown away by that. And also, just the way that he’s open with experimentation, and pushes me to really try out new things, and things that I maybe would think that people want to hold off on.“
Goransson joins Nolan in championing “Tenet’s” big-screen appeal, but it will be interesting to see how “Tenet” delivers the spectacle its makers have so passionately promised.
“Tenet” stars John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, and Robert Pattinson and is written and directed by Nolan. The film is said to open later this month in some international territories before hitting select theaters in the US on September 4.
