First Reactions to IMAX screening of Tenet by IMAX employees

image host

Some IMAX employees had the opportunity to watch a screening of Tenet before its worldwide release. Deadline has reported the reactions as follows:

Due to strong ties between Imax Corp. and filmmaker Christopher Nolan, a number of employees have gotten a look at his long-delayed film, Tenet, as it gets ready to finally make its commercial bow on August 26.

“Several people at Imax were involved with Tenet at the post-production phase,” CEO Rich Gelfond said Tuesday during a conference call with Wall Street analysts. “Their reaction was, ‘Oh my God – I forgot how great it was to be in a movie.’ Tenet is just a beautifully filmed, beautifully made, wonderful movie. … It wasn’t just one person, at one age. It was a number of Imax employees who spontaneously said that to me.”

Descriptions of internal Tenet reactions came in response to an analyst’s question on the earnings call about the company’s staff getting to enter theaters again. That experience has remained out of reach for U.S. film fans for the past four months. CFO Patrick McClymont added to Gelfond’s comments by observing that “a number of our colleagues” were in China last weekend to “try out” the newly refined theatrical setup. Imax said 409 of its locations there have reopened, with several new precautions in place.

Robert Pattinson, once again, shows that he just might be the finest actor of his generation with a brave and crazy performance as the Dauphin of France, Reno Reviews

I’m very late with putting this together as I was overseas when The King premiered in Venice and so I missed posting the initial reactions. But as usual I like to roundup reviews that focus on Rob’s performance – so here it is a tad late but as they say better late than never. Note: there are a few in The Cruel that actually praise Rob but overall thought he was miscast.


Film Inquiry (Venice FF)

A snippet of a devilishly chic inspired performance from Robert Pattinson injects several larger layers to the proceedings, even if his accent will come under particular scrutiny. However, he is drastically underused…

The Film Stage (Venice FF)

The son of the Daphine, for instance, is played with considerable camp by Robert Pattinson. … Pattinson’s attempts to rectify this by using an affectatious French accent are amicable enough but they are played for rather questionable laughs.

Espinoff (Venice FF)

Robert Pattinson steals the show.

Fotogramas (Spain) (Venice FF)

With the years, Pattinson has proven to be a brilliant blank page on which the most disparate directors outline characters of all stripes and backgrounds. This time Pattinson indulges in one of his feasts of histrionics, facing his enemies with a sibylline evil, always bordering on cruelty. A new proof of the chameleonic character of an actor who still has a lot to tell.

Evening Standard (UK) (Venice FF)

As his rival, the Dauphin, Robert Pattinson is preposterously fabulously pert and camp, a hoot every moment he’s on screen.

The Skinny (UK) (Venice FF)

If you enjoy your period epics with a touch of camp, Pattinson’s gleeful turn as this bitchy Frenchman should bring you plenty of joy; each comic appearance adds a moment of lightness to the gravity of Michôd’s film.

BBC Culture (Venice Film Festival)

The film’s liveliest scenes come when the army reaches France, and Robert Pattinson camps it up as the ludicrously evil Dauphin.

One Room with a View (Venice FF)

…and Robert Pattinson threatens to steal the show in a few hilarious scenes, charmingly mangling English as a second language as the Dauphin of France.

Vanity Fair (Venice FF)

And then there’s Robert Pattinson, matinee idol of a half-generation ago, who shows up for a few scenes as the sneering, lewd dauphin of France. He’s got a riotous wig and a French waiter from The Simpsons accent (say chowder!) that had the Europeans in my audience hooting with laughter. (I couldn’t quite tell if they were irked or amused.) It’s a delightfully ridiculous performance in a movie that otherwise takes itself very seriously.

“it’s the most ferocious acting of Pattinson’s career.” Variety

As usual, I am going to do a roundup of reviews coming out of Cannes initially (The Lighthouse is being called the hottest ticket in Cannes), but will update this post regularly as the film gets released. The reviews will focus on Rob’s performance, but if he’s not mentioned (which will be ridiculous for this film), then I’ll give an overall review of the film. NOTE: Some reviews may contain ***spoilers*** so read at your own peril. I’ll try to keep out the spoilers in the extracts below.

The Cool

IndieWire (Directors’ Fortnight Cannes)

The movie provides a welcome platform for these actors to unleash their wildest abilities: Pattinson spends the first half sulking around, his eyes darting every which way as he attempts to make sense of his dreary surroundings. But when the material calls for him to unleash his fury, his eyes bulge and his body quakes in a pure show of physical intensity. It’s the sort of showboating the actor tends to avoid, but this histrionic material gives him the ideal excuse to lash out, and with winning results. 

The Wrap (Directors’ Fortnight Cannes)

Both Pattinson and Dafoe seem to have a great time — you could not say as much for their characters, I suppose — letting madness take its toll, and both abide by the rule of “go big or go home.” Dafoe carries more of the dialogue for the first half, but Pattinson anchors things with a sturdy physical performance that will no doubt calm those concerned about a certain reported upcoming role.

When he does get to loosen to his tongue, the actor tears into his lines with scenery-chewing glee, at one point delivering an invective- and insult-filled monologue that the Cannes audience greeted with mid-film cheers.

CineVue (Directors’ Fortnight Cannes)

Robert Pattinson proves himself once more to be a fearless character actor who brings a layered understanding to Winslow and does not hold back when the shit almost literally hits the fan.

Roundup of reactions to Robert Pattinson #HighLife Long Awaited Trailer

image host

Wildbunch released the long awaited trailer for #HighLife and here are some of the initial reactions:

Geek Tyrant “Robert Pattinson is on a Spacecraft Full of Convicts and Death Row Inmates in The Trailer For HIGH LIFE”

Robert Pattinson has a new sci-fi space thriller coming out called High Life and it actually looks pretty damn good. The movie doesn’t look anything like I expected it to be and that’s a good thing. It looks better, darker, and more insane.

Refinery 29 “Robert Pattinson’s Trippy High Life Takes You Out Of This World”

The trailer feels like a high-octane psychological thriller, but infused with the eroticism Denis became known for in previous movies such as Chocolat. Though the film is science fiction, it appears to remain grounded in exploring the depths of the human condition more so than the depths of space.

Consequence of Sound “André 3000 and Robert Pattinson get sucked into a black hole in first trailer for High Life”

One of our favorite films out of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was Claire Denis’ surreal sci-fi stunner, High Life. Starring Robert Pattinson, who’s on an impeccable run of indie darlings (see: Good TimeThe Lost City of Z, and Damsel), the film follows a bunch of convicts enlisting in an experimental voyage that goes straight into a black hole. Sounds fun, huh?
