Tenet, which stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh, stays on monitor to proceed the development.
Besides a cryptic, Bond-like teaser trailer, we all know little about Tenet. This trailer adjustments that.
