*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.
We see this in the prologue.
The first guy is Jefferson Hall. The second is Rich Ceraulo Ko.

*When we had a break, I saw Debicki. Not in action.
This makes sense, because she films other scenes in Tallinn; simply there to watch.

But the opera house scene and the highway scene are two different countries in the film.

Sometimes director request main actors who doesn't have a scene that day to be present anyway. This is because the director sometimes want to have special photoshoot or have additional scenes.

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?
This has been discussed and debunked 4-5 months ago before you were ever a member of this forum. This scene happens once and only once. The prologue was edited down to 6 minutes. End of story, end of discussion.

So are you saying the final version will be extended?

Most likely? Some of the transitions seemed a bit hasty. But we never know. Tenet seems to have a very, very complex plot. They may need to make the prologue short to fit the story in a reasonable duration.

Very true, good point. The only thing I really noticed was when JDW says “let’s get him to the rally point” and then it immediately cuts to the rally point, but the second trailer showed footage of JDW escorting the VIP so the footage definitely exists and I’d imagine they’d use more of it so it’s more cohesive.

The 'colors' in the 2nd trailer where JDW was escorting the VIP looks really good. Do you think that was filmed with IMAX cameras?

Do we know yet what percentage of the movie is shot on IMAX? Or how many scenes? I can’t remember if they revealed that info before the release of his other films
