Christopher Nolan’s upcoming original action thriller, a spy film with time manipulation elements called “Tenet,” doesn’t come cheap.
That is an enormous budget for an original film not based on a popular IP, though its within Nolan’s wheelhouse. Previous films of his include “Inception” which cost $160 million, “Interstellar” at $165 million, “The Dark Knight” at $185 million and “The Dark Knight Rises” at $230 million. His most recent film, “Dunkirk,” came in at a relatively cheap amount of around $100-150 million.
“Tenet” co-stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clemence Poésy, Himesh Patel, Dimple Kapadia, Martin Donovan, Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine. Ludwig Goransson is handling the score for the film which will open July 17th.
