That shot in the trailer, from the prologue, where he is escorting the VIP is super important because in the prologue, that shot isn't there, and so when JDW and VIP jumped down they are in the middle of the audience and then the next shot they are at the end of the isle. When watching the prologue (after the 10th time) I thought it was a continuity error. As soon as the trailer came out I noticed that shot, and thought shit, they shot the connective tissue...I've very curious if it's in the actual movie.
We are capable of making the mental leap here and correctly assuming what must have occurred.

As I said on the previous page:
TENET, the word itself, is a palindrome. Perhaps the most popular fan theory is that the film will therefore have a palindromic structure; we will see that shot from the trailer at the end of the film...
...when the story focuses on JDW near the end of his inversion as he rescues himself by reverse shooting the guy in the opera house

The 6 Min Prologue scene that we have seen will be like 10-12 minutes to the official film so chill out everyone.
Do you mean 10-12 minutes if we count the end of the film too?

There wont be footage of the prologue (of the opening of the film) in the End.

Then, how do you believe the film will be structured plotwise? You don't believe Nolan will show us the perspective of events from the point of view of...
...the person who is inverted and rescues JDW (who may or may not be JDW himself)
EDIT: I don't mean to say Nolan will use the same footage twice; he will show us different footage of the same scene at the end (which is what we see in the trailer instead of the prologue).

What you see in the trailer is just a continuity of the scene when they jump from the VIP sector to the people seats and nothing more.
That's what I am saying to you that those extra scenes in the final cut will make the prologue look more complete and having more sense, because the 6 min footage has a lot of editing mistakes. Nolan (or Emma) himself said that the prologue is the beginning of the film and It is just a way to first introduce in the same time to the audience and to the JDW's charachter the INVERSION.

If he needs to put a meaning to the SWAT guy identiny he can easily do that with a QUICK SHORT CROSSCUT (2-5 seconds long) and that's It. The film will no longer be back to the prologue.

Right. We had extras that were in attendance during the opera scene that said there were many other scenes that were filmed that were not in the prologue.

Yes. We are in agreement. That's all it is.

Yes, it WOULD make the prologue look better to have that scene, but will the prologue be re-edited? I don't believe so.
I think it is likely going to stick to it's current length and that scene will pop up at the end of the film.

Could this be further proof the scene is longer in the film? We don't see the SWAT-team enter from this angle in the prologue, right?

It will most likely be re-edited, especially because of the delays they’re definitely gonna go back to the editing room and make changes, we should all expect the prologue to be extended

No, but I think this is just a shot by the stills photographer. There's a visible crew member all the way in the top right.

Hoyte is probably filming from down the stairs or coming behind the SWAT from the foyer

Back in December " I made contact" with an extra that sent me a picture of the brochure of the concert in that National Opera House as proof.
He also told me the following:
*There was a scene when JD was slithering down the large balustrade.
*This saved VIP... There was the second one. He looked more like an Asiatic, but in absolutely same clothes.
*VIP windows (where was an explosion)... On the last shooting day every window round the hall was illuminated with different colors (green, red, blue, orange - if I remember correctly) and there were people shadows in those windows. Just standing an watching.
*There were A LOT of shoot-out scenes in different location.
*When we had a break, I saw Debicki. Not in action. I just know that she was there in a beautiful red dress. Maybe even watching from one of the illuminated windows (?)
