There’s always a lot of anticipation surrounding each of Christopher Nolan’s projects, and his upcoming action thriller Tenet is no different. The acclaimed director finally shared the first look at his highly-anticipated movie, and described it as “the most ambitious film” he’s ever made.

The plot of Tenet is still kept under wraps, but it’s expected to revolve around international espionage, time travel, and evolution. First stills that Nolan shared with Entertainment Weekly show lead actors Robert Pattinson and John David Washington, but this project also stars Kenneth Branagh, Elizabeth Debicki and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

The oscar-nominated filmmaker will co-produce this project alongside his business partner and wife Emma Thomas. He described Tenet as their biggest production in terms of international reach, since they’ve filmed it in seven different countries.

“We’re jumping off from the point of view of an espionage film, but we’re going to a number of different places. We’re crossing a few different genres in a hopefully exciting and fresh way… There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made,” Nolan told Entertainment Weekly.

Tenet is expected to premiere on July 17th, 2020.
