He added: “Their response was: ‘Oh my God – I forgot how great it was to be in a movie.’
“Tenet is only a fantastically filmed, fantastically made, fantastic film… It wasn’t only one individual, at one age. It was quite a lot of Imax staff who spontaneously stated that to me.”
Going on to reference one other of Nolan’s movies, Gelfond added: “Unlike Dunkirk, which was a European-centric film, Tenet is a extra conventional action-thriller blockbuster with the potential for wider world attraction.”
Tenet will probably be launched in cinemas on August 26 within the UK, and September 2 within the US.
