I appreciate that just as theyíre about to make the (totally nuts) premise concrete the trailer becomes a series of random scenes before ending abruptly on what I guess they thought was a joke.

This is based on a comic series, which is really more about its own premise than a "plot" tbh so i'm curious as to how they will make it a 2 hour movie

They're after the immortal's DNA presumably so they can sell it or take over the world or something.

Just give them some blood samples? Or establish a non-profit philanthropic organization and say you found this weird blood from a mosquito fossilized in amber.

These Immortals seem like the bad guys.

I would understand the ideal to be "you get a full, happy life that eventually ends" and that both living forever and dying young/avoidably go against this ideal

So since Doctor Strange took the city-folding from Inception and cranked it to 11, Tenet is taking the final fight scene of Doctor Strange and doing the same?

I saw the first 12 minutes of Tenet in IMAX before whatever I last saw in IMAX months ago, and my rear end in a top hat was clenched shut from tension the entire time. I'd compare it to the bank heist scene from Heat.

It's easily one of the most tense things i've ever seen in a theater. The IMAX sound system had a lot to do with that.

Oh yeah, I remember that from when we had... movie theaters.

That made me really want to see it, so I guess it is pointless for me to watch the new trailer. So yes, I'm going to make the comment that I choose not to watch a trailer in the trailer thread. Foolish marketing department, you already sold me on the movie!

I love how these movies always have the villain's big plan on what to do when they obtain immortality is to build an army of supersoldiers. Instead of just selling it, and obtaining an eternal life of luxury beyond their wildest dreams.

Yeah this is what bothers me. Usually teaser is kinda cool stuff and then trailer gets a little more narrative.

This just felt like... it got way more confusing. And not because they tried to tell too much but because they just threw in some random poo poo. As someone else on the internet said... "where the hell is the through line?" the trailer just literally makes no sense.

Now as I mentioned it's Nolan and as feedmyleg said there's a cool movie in there so I'm def intrigued. But just as trailer-craft that one was really bad.

Maybe they're trying to keep the plot under wraps. Or maybe they had narrative trailers and they just didn't work so they just threw a bunch of action against the wall to keep the energy up.


Or maybe the plot is bad.

My guess is the gas masks they're wearing allow them to move forward in time while things are moving backward in time. Whatever the case, I'm up for Nolan playing with time in all of his previous films.

This is actually my fear. My first reaction was that it was to keep the secret under wraps, but ... it's just so bad that instead I feel like the secret just plain probably doesn't make sense.

Nah. Kiimo probably can give more insight but Nolanís trailer dude (is it the same guy) follows almost the same formula for all his movies. His trailers have this 1-2-3 act where each one expands on the previous one. I posted about before. Not sure if it was this thread, though.

Oh hey found my post in the old thread:

Happy Noodle Boy posted:

Nolan trailers always seem to follow the same 3-step pattern.

Trailer 1 - The Teaser:
Dark Knight, Inception, Dark Knight Rises
Trailer 2 - The Story:
Dark Knight, Inception, Dark Knight Rises
Trailer 3 - This will get your rear end in the theater, it'll also be kinda spoilery
Dark Knight, Inception, Dark Knight Rises

And they're all loving awesome.

By the third trailer you can generally start putting the movie together and has more of the bigger set pieces/climax moments sprinkled in.
