Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” Coming Home in December

Even if you managed to make it to a theater to catch Christopher Nolan’s latest epic, having Tenet in your home seems like a no brainer. The reason, aside from the pleasure of plunging into Nolan’s complex, confounding spy thriller again, is being able to pause it, rewind it, puzzle it out on your time. The film is a trip, and the more time you get to stroll its switchbacks and MC Escher-like corridors, the better.

Here are the details. Tenet will be available on 4K, Blu-ray, digital, and DVD on December 15. If you’re willing to pony up the dough, the 4K combo pack can be yours for $44.95. The Blu-ray will set you back $35.99, and the DVD will run you $28.98. You can pre-order any one of them starting on November 10.

If you’re not a nerd about the technical details and the crispest viewing scenario, there’s still a reason why the 4K or Blu-ray deals might be worth your money—they include a documentary. Looking at the World in a New Way: The Making of Tenet is an hour-long deep-dive into the development and production of the film. It includes cast and crew interviews and unpacks a lot of the riddle. If you’re a craft nerd (and if you read this website, you just might be), this is worth the price of admission alone.

Tenet is still playing in theaters. It came into the world at the weirdest, scariest possible time, of course, and that limited its theatrical reach. Yet even debuting in the middle of a pandemic, Nolan’s film still grossed $347.1 million as of November 1. There’s simply a tremendous appetite for a big Nolan film, and now that it’ll be available in your home before the Holidays you can expect all those folks who chose to avoid theaters to happily dial in Tenet for their home viewing pleasure.
