Christopher Nolan's "Tenet", partly filmed in Tallinn last summer, finally premiered a couple minutes after midnight on Wednesday, August 26, with film-goers waiting in line to see the long-awaited movie.
Regardless of the late hour, movie fans across Estonia visited their favorite cinemas to catch the action thriller, expected to be a blockbuster, as it is the first major film to hit cinemas since the pandemic began.
The film was partly filmed in Tallinn, mostly on Laagna tee and inside and outside the Linnahall, but wider shots of Tallinn are also used in the movie.
While stars like Robert Pattinson and John David Washington are the leads of the movie, many Estonians and Estonian residents were involved as extras in mass scenes, likely bringing several people to cinemas to spot themselves or their friends in the crowd.
The movie was originally scheduled to premiere on July 17, but was postponed initially to July 31, and then to August 12, as developments of the novel coronavirus in California, and the rest of the U.S., continued, pushing the release back once more, to August 26, when it was finally unveiled.
