TENET (Only in theaters)

The first big film to test movie audiences as to whether they will head back into movie theaters is Tenet, the latest from writer/director Christopher Nolan. John David Washington is at the center of this story and is referred to as “The Protagonist” He’s pulled out of a medically induced coma after a failed mission only to continue on his mission. It’s one that’s hard for him to conceive of and understand as it involves the inversion of time. Simply put, he’s trying to prevent World War III which would be worse than a nuclear holocaust. The man he’s trying to stop is a Russian oligarch played by Kenneth Branagh. Helping the Protaganist is Neil, played by Robert Pattison and Elizabeth Debicki as the oligarch’s estranged wife.
