I’m literally moments away from headed back to a movie theater for the first time since March. It’s a decision a lot of people, including critics who might have to return to make a living, will have to make very soon with the release of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. Do they risk putting themselves out there while the coronavirus is a very real danger? Or stay home and hope the movie gets dropped on HBO Max or something?
Well, Tom Cruise has made his call. And surprise surprise, the guy who throws himself off of buildings for a living decided to jump in with both feet and see Tenet in a crowded theater.
Cruise filmed part of the experience and captured it on Twitter, captioned simply “Big Movie. Big Screen. Loved it.”
I mean, that’s just too perfect, isn’t it? We see Cruise walking us through the experience, wearing his mask (and of course his is so much cooler than ours) and thoroughly loving the whole thing. You can see him leaning forward in his chair like an excited school kid. I don’t know who that guy is next to him but he sorta looks like Christopher McQuarrie? It probably isn’t, but maybe?
Anyway, Cruise says he “loved” Tenet, and that’s not a shock. That he and Nolan haven’t teamed up for some planet-sized spectacle yet is a damn mystery. I’m betting it happens now.
