Christopher Nolan, man behind a string of sweat-inducing films, has a new movie on the… far horizon. It’s due out in 2020 – July 17, 2020.
What is this new film called? No clue. What’s it about? Again, no clue. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film has been described as an “event film” – it already has event status – which will also be released in IMAX. That’s it, that’s all the information Warner Bros. has announced.
Of course, the director is known for his secrecy, generally working on his own screenplays and such with not a single piece of information leaking until the appropriate time. But this July release date does give us something – a year and six months to prepare ourselves emotionally for whatever Nolan gifts us next.
Two years ago during the same month of July, Nolan’s World War II epic Dunkirk was released and went on to win three Academy Awards out of its eight Oscar nominations.
In the previous years – again during July – Nolan’s The Dark Knight (2008), Inception (2010), and The Dark Knight Rises (2012) were all released.
The man froths a July release.
You know what else all three of those films, and Dunkirk, have in common? Renowned film score composer Hans Zimmer.
An exception to the July rule is the mind-bending 2014 film Interstellar which was released in November of that year. Again, another Oscar-nominated film.
As THR reports, the new SpongeBob Movie and the Bob’s Burgers movie will open in the same week as Nolan’s new film so – unless he’s taken a 180 degree turn in interests – this untitled project is going to stand out big time.
