Based on an essay by H.G. Wells, Things to Come is a visionary story of colossal scope, spanning seventy years and the destruction and creation of civilization. Beginning in the near future (the late 1930s, naturally), a second World War breaks out, laying waste to all that is civilized. Fortunately, visionary scientist John Cabal (Raymond Massey) proposes to the world a scientific and ordered existence that will deliver all from the misery and toil that war has wrought. The film then leaps ahead to 2036, and the world has stabalized into a leisurly place of order and comfort – not at all to the liking of everyone! This science fiction masterpiece encompasses lofty ideals as well as down to Earth human passions that are struggling to survive a technological onslaught. From the jaw dropping visuals to the stirring performances, Things to Come is a pillar of film making achievement, as visionary as its story.

Tenet is an upcoming action thriller film written and directed by Christopher Nolan. It stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh. A secret agent is tasked with preventing World War III through time travel. Principal photography began in May 2019 and took place in seven countries, Estonia, India, Italy, Norway, the United Kingdom, and United States. Filming in Estonia happened in June and July, with the Linnahall, Pärnu Highway, and adjacent streets closed to facilitate it. Tallinn mayor Mihhail Kõlvart expressed concerns about potential disruptions as the original shooting schedule required that the arterial Laagna Road be closed for one month. Production eventually reached a compromise involving temporary road closures and detours. The city government later granted a two-day extension to allow filming to be completed. Scenes were shot in Ravello, Italy and Hampstead, England at Cannon Hall late August, and on the roof of the Oslo Opera House and in Tjuvholmen, Norway, and in Rødbyhavn, Denmark at Nysted Wind Farm early that September. A five-day shoot occurred later that month in Mumbai, where Nolan had traveled in February and April for location scouting. He decided on Breach Candy Hospital, Cafe Mondegar, Colaba Causeway, Colaba Market, Gateway of India, Grant Road, Royal Bombay Yacht Club, and the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. A restaurant set named "Chaand" was built near the hotel, but never used, serving only as an alternative Forty boats were positioned at the Gateway of India, where the crew also rescued a man who had attempted suicide. A stunt where someone jumps off a building was done in Grant Road and a helicopter was applied for aerial footage of the hospital. Tenet is scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures on July 17, 2020 in IMAX, 35 mm, and 70 mm film.

Tenet is a 2020 spy film written and directed by Christopher Nolan, who produced it with Emma Thomas. A co-production between the United Kingdom and United States, it stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh. The plot follows a secret agent (Washington) as he manipulates the flow of time to prevent World War III. Nolan took more than five years to write the screenplay after deliberating about Tenet's central ideas for over a decade. Casting began in March 2019, and principal photography took place in Denmark, Estonia, India, Italy, Norway, the United Kingdom, and United States, starting in May 2019. Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema shot on 70 mm and IMAX. Delayed three times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tenet was released in the United Kingdom on August 26, 2020, and United States on September 3, 2020, in IMAX, 35 mm, and 70 mm. It was the first Hollywood tent-pole to open in theaters after the pandemic shutdown, and has grossed $146 million worldwide, making it the sixth highest-grossing film of 2020. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the performances and action sequences, though some criticized the confusing plot, impassive tone, and sound mixing. As of September 6, 2020, Tenet has grossed $20.2 million in the United States and Canada, and $126 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $146.2 million. With a production budget of $200 million, Tenet is Nolan's most expensive original project. IndieWire speculated that the marketing could push the final sum to $300–350 million, though analysts predicted lower advertising costs than usual, owing to inexpensive live sports ads. Observer estimated it would need to make $450–500 million in order to break even. Nolan is reported to receive twenty percent of the first-dollar gross.
