Although not much is known about the film, Tenet is reportedly the follow-up to Nolan's Oscar-nominated war drama Dunkirk, that earned the noted filmmaker his first Best Director Oscar nomination. Billed as an action epic film, Tenet will be filmed across seven countries.

In August, the trailer of Tenet was secretly unveiled before some early shows of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Variety reported the 40-long-teaser has not been released on the web, and there is uncertainty about when it will. However, the teaser reportedly stars only John David Washington, and features the tagline “It’s time for a new protagonist.”

The Hollywood Reporter provided a detailed description of the trailer. As per their report, the trailer begins with a shot of shattered window-pane, punctured by a bullet. Washington is then seen standing behind the glass. He moves closer to examine the glass. Then, a montage of shots showing Washington in action appear on screen. The teaser ends with Washington's face being covered with an oxygen mask as he slowly breathes.

The tentpole is expected to debut into theatres on 17 July, 2020.
