Many of that excitement is coming from the screen name, Christopher Nolan, who directed both The Dark Knight Rises and Inception. The acclaimed director has been very vocal about his desire to premiere Tenet in a live theater as well as letting people know how this film compares to other Hollywood blockbusters. His involvement will be a big factor in whether or not he receives a Golden Globe nomination for Best Director.
Most of the anticipation comes from the fact that Nolan is making the movie for the first time ever. While he may have been involved in previous films, this will be his first time directing. This will be an experience that will allow him to put into action his creative ideas and how they relate to the production of a film. This experience will also help him to understand what kind of support he needs from the studios to get the job done.
As previously mentioned, Nolan is doing the film in order to herald the resurgence of theatrical release. He did this after the original Dark Knight was a hit. He believes that there is a market out there waiting for a sequel and for him to take the characters from the original film and give them a new story. He is working on it now and is expected to begin filming shortly. The hope is that it will be released later this year or early next year.
What can we expect from The Dark Knight Rises? Will it still be a faithful adaptation of the books written by Christopher Nolan, or will it be an entirely different film altogether? The hope is that it will be a mixture of both films, because it will be a challenge for the director to pull it off.
Of course, if The Dark Knight Rises does become a huge success, then there will be another chance for the different director to make a movie without having to use a name other than his own. If it doesn't do as well, then he won't have to worry about another project, but instead the opportunity might present itself to him to go back to the original name.
The last word is that the director has said that he will be producing the film with his production company, Syncopy. This company was one of the few that was able to bring Batman to the big screen, along with The Dark Knight. Hopefully, they will be able to repeat that success this success with Inception.
