Re: Nolanhack's Next Flick

Just popped in because a thought popped into my head: maybe his next film could/should be an Interstellar sequel? First, pandemic or not, Tenet lost money, and it wouldn't be that much of a stretch for him to make a 'one for them' movie like TDKR. Which brings to my second point. The obvious first c...

Re: TENET - General Information

Exactly. Quoting the carefully-constructed words of an AT&T lapdog concerned only with the stock price is disingenuous cherry-picking. Especially in light of Mr. Villeneuve's bombshell essay condemning the move: https://variety.com/2020/film/news/dune-denis-villeneuve-blasts-warner-bros-1234851270/...

Re: Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)

I have been force-fed the trailer for this so many times over the past few months that I actually went from 'couldn't care less if it ever comes out' to 'hold on, I'm excited for this' lol

The power of repeated exposure marketing. It truly does work.

Re: Tenet - Awards Season Discussion Thread

I still can't get over the fact that the 'The Plan' bits that are sprinkled in throughout the film (when the Protag first appears, when he gets on the fire truck ladder, etc.) that I absolutely love, were a last-minute addition lol Like, if the pandemic didn't happen and the film released on time, w...

Re: TENET - General Information

I do not agree with the attack on Protag's character. IMO he is the purest good-guy hero that Mr. Nolan has ever written. Two examples off the top of my head: SWAT: It's not our mission! Protag: It's mine now. Protag: I wanted to be on the first wave. [...] Ives: You want to be on the team that retr...

Re: Tenet - Awards Season Discussion Thread

Love the film (as everyone probably knows) but I agree that if it receives zero noms I would be completely fine with that

Re: Tenet - Box Office Autopsy

Obviously if Tenet had done fantastic, AT&T would have been forced to back off and continue let WB do its thing, and everything would be all roses. But, and don't quote me on this, I'm pretty sure that Tenet lost less money than Mulan, which pre-pandemic-wise would have been the bigger grosser. Now,...
