The Coronavirus pandemic impacted a lot of things including movie watching in theatres, but now it seems that things are looking good. Well, that’s what Tom Cruise’s latest video shows. He landed in a movie theatre to watch Tenet. He was surprised that people identified and waved at him even though he was wearing a mask.

“Great to be back in a movie theatre, everybody,” said the actor to the audience present at the screening and added that he loved the film.
The actor resumed filming for Mission Impossible recently.
Tenet opens in UK cinemas on August 26th. Christopher Nolan had said that it is the most ambitious film of his career. Though the plot details have been kept under wraps by the studio Warner Bros, Nolan said the movie is an espionage thriller that spans several 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,” Nolan told Entertainment Weekly.
He further said the project, which he also produces alongside his frequent collaborator Emma Thomas, has been mounted on a scale that is “certainly the biggest in terms of international reach“. “We shot in seven countries, all over the place, with a massive cast and huge set pieces. There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made,” Nolan added. The director also revealed that Washington, a former football player and the star of “BlackKklansman” and “Ballers”, is “very much the hero” of “Tenet“. “He’s a massively talented actor and physically gifted. He’s an athlete and pretty hard for anybody to keep up with, including the different vehicles we shot him from. This guy moves,” Nolan said.
