Tenet is in Auckland's IMAX cinema now
It's been a long wait for new movies since the Covid-19 pandemic hit.
Some have been postponed from the schedules and moved to next year, or released straight to streaming sites, so 2020 has been a difficult year for movie-lovers.
However, one of the biggest films of the year has released in New Zealand, ahead of the rest of the world.
Earlier this year, there was speculation director Christopher Nolan's Tenet would lead the most unusual blockbuster season yet.
But when the US decided to postpone their release of the film, it was questionable New Zealand would get to see it.
A decision to screen Tenet first overseas meant New Zealand is one of the first countries in the world to view the new movie from Christopher Nolan.
And now Auckland has dropped down its Covid-19 Alert Level, there's a chance to see the film in its best possible presentation - the IMAX Theatre at Event Cinemas in Auckland's CBD.
Acclaimed director Christopher Nolan's latest has an all star cast including John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki and Michael Caine.
Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.
With special footage shot for IMAX cinemas, Tenet cries out to be seen on Auckland's biggest screen - the IMAX theatre.
