For one week only Tenet is coming back to IMAX screens. Check out if you’re fortunate enough to have a screening in your home town – I know in Australia it’s only in Melbourne.

From Collider:

Tenet is extended its run in Los Angeles and New York IMAX locations until March 30, after the film received over more than 30 sold-out shows in recent weeks. With restrictions lifting to allow the opening of theaters in these two major markets, Tenet’s late success in these two cities is a positive step for movie theaters. The sci-fi thriller opened in a limited capacity back in August of 2020 and has since been released to streaming services. But finally seeing Christopher Nolan’s latest on the big screen – as the director originally intended – is a huge boon for fans of the inventive director.

The press release went into more detail about the decision, including which theaters had sold out in New York and Los Angeles.

“Since last weekend, ‘Tenet’ has racked up more than 30 sold out shows across both markets — including near complete sellouts over the weekend of IMAX 70mm film locations AMC Lincoln Square in New York and AMC Universal City in Los Angeles. Five of eight Southern California screens sold out both Friday and Saturday night prime performances, including AMC Century City, Burbank, Universal City, Norwalk, and Ontario Mills. Both New York and Los Angeles theaters currently are limited to 25% capacity.”

    I am new to this blog and have left a couple of comments on other posts where no one except perhaps the blog owner sees them. This site is an extravagant anthology on Pattinson’s career and I am loving every bit of it. I don’t really know where I was in 2008 to have not heard of Twilight but I only saw it in the last month when my husband was watching it repeatedly. He is a serious guy, has excellent taste in films and does not like stuff that is sh*t. So curious to see what drew him in, I watched all five. We had long discussions about what might Edward’s character mean — as a metaphorical presence and why we like it. I think we attributed more depth and meaning to the whole situation depicted in the first one, Twilight than the author ever intended. Since then I/we watched most of his movies, read print interviews, watched YouTube videos of press tour for the movies. In our household we are now Pattinson’s fans though we would not go out of our way to see him or scream at him and so on. But what a great guy, inside and out! I don’t understand why the critics, the journalists, and others gave him such a hard time during the Twilight years and soon after doubting his talent and motivation. I don’t understand their bashing Remember Me or not acknowledging Cosmopolis. That last 10 minutes or so in Cosmopolis is gold, his eyes welling up with tears staring into oblivion, and how he walks to the killer’s den, the walk, that was special. And, Rover, they (love Pearce too) took us with them on that long car journey. High Life is another gem and I like reading print interviews where he shares his thoughts on the characters — NPR’s Terry Gross’ interview of both Denis and Pattinson and a print interview in Dazed were superb. All his movies make you think (as they should), even the Twilight ones, at least the first one in interpreting ‘vampire’ metaphorically as something that is socially undesirable trying to reform themselves to fit into civil society. He had the last laugh in Good Time showing the other directors how he could be like street-casted and not worry about his fandom. Lighthouse was also great but I didn’t like the director’s snooty attitude. Damsel was fun. Not a Tenet or Batman kind of person but will see them because of him. Looks like he could not have orchestrated his response to Twilight ‘baggage’ better and he did it all on his own terms. It feels good when ‘underdogs’ win.

    Hi PM doesn’t matter that you weren’t here in 2008 since you are here now. I think people do read your comments, I know I enjoy them. I totally agree about the last 10 minutes of Cosmopolis. I felt like Rob’s confidence grew during that performance culminating in that scene. And “YES” to that feeling good when “underdogs” win. Thanks for your insights 🙂

    Hi Maria, thanks for the reply. This blog is unbelievable. I have written for blogs and such but to keep it going like this for over a decade is remarkable. I never thought much of Hollywood stuff, so not surprising that I missed all the twilight hoopla in 2008 and the joke in our house is if it didn’t have subtitles we won’t watch it. But this guy draws you in by who he is (at least through what we can gather from afar) and not what he is. Waiting for his next Denis movie, though watching Tenet will be a feast for the eyes.
    I don’t have twitter or (God forbid) Facebook/Instagram accounts but needed an outlet for my thoughts on Pattinson. So here I am. 🙂

    Hi sue (waves) … you guessed it right about educating. He is an intriguing character so unlike the other celebrities and when I first looked at some YouTube videos, seeing that he did not spout plastic talking points in his interviews, he caught my eyes, (well, for other reasons too, 😉 who does not like to look at a well dressed handsome man?). Other than my husband, I have not found anyone else in my circle to share my excitement. I recommended Devil all the time to a friend and she was like it is so disturbing, she could not sleep — so she is out. LoL… this site and you all are great! I am rummaging through all your old posts through the years.
