There’s no way an action movie shooting in seven countries will have a budget of 120m.

This will be more expensive than that.

I wonder if any of these countries have granted the production rebates or tax incentives.

I found this on incentives in Estonia
Up to 30% discretionary cash rebate. The maximum (30%) grant can be applied if the film production uses Estonian-based filmmakers, actors and other production crew, Estonian story and/or Estonian-set storyline.

Tartu Film Fund: 10-20% rebate for eligible expenditure incurred in the Tartu area by local film production companies providing production services to international co-productions. The film fund is capped at €150,000 annually.

Viru Film Fund: discretionary cash rebate or co-financing for qualified expenses incurred in the Eastern region of Estonia, including above and below-the-line expenses (except producer's fee in excess of 7% of the total eligible expenditure). No residency requirements. The film fund is capped at around €50,000 annually. Minimum spend: €0

Around the same budget as Inception had then? According to Wikipedia it had a budget of $160 million.

Yeah but that was ten years ago. Inflation might make that number larger.

Saw some set photos of Marvel's upcoming Black Widow movie, and I was amazed at how many similarities it shared with Tenet.

Both are:
- spy films (or at least I assume) coming out summer 2020; Black Widow in May, and Tenet in July
- currently shooting in formerly communist Eastern Bloc countries
- using a tram and an armored fighting vehicle in an action scene

Oh, and did I mention that there's also Bond 25 coming out in April 2020?

There's a very real chance that come July 2020, audiences could be burnt out on the spy genre, which will affect Tenet's box office unless it has some kind of high-concept hook setting it apart that we don't yet know about.

Safe to say, summer 2020 box office is going to be fun.
