Nolan took more than five years to write the screenplay after deliberating about Tenets central ideas for over a decade. Pre-production began in late 2018, casting in March 2019, and principal photography lasted three months in Denmark, Estonia, India, Italy, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States, from May to November.

Scenes of time manipulation were filmed both backward and forwards. Upwards of one hundred vessels and thousands of extras were used. Delayed three times because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tenet was released in the United Kingdom on August 26, 2020, and United States on September 3, 2020

However, it failed to break even due to its costly production and marketing budget, losing distributor Warner Bros. Pictures as much as $100 million. Tenet received generally positive reviews from critics, especially for its visuals and production, though it received some criticism for its plot complexity and sound mixing.
