The much anticipated new movie from director Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros Studios, Tenet, opens on July 31 — one of the first salvos in the studios' effort to bring Covid-anxious patrons back to movie theaters. Tenet's storyline, though strictly guarded, promises to be vintage Nolan, full of intrigue, time-warps and mind-bends, all wrapped around an international espionage plot. Nolan turns to longtime collaborators DNEG and visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson to create the film's visual effects. Special effects supervisor Scott Fisher, of Interstellar, returns to orchestrate practical on-set effects. Starring Robert Pattinson, John David Washington and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.  
   
Black Widow  
Set in the time period between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Black Widow follows Natasha Romanoff's personal story, as portrayed by Scarlett Johansson. Director Cate Shortland collaborated with visual effects supervisor Gerard Diefenthal and special effects supervisor Chris Corbould to bring the travails and triumphs of the Marvel Studios' heroine to vivid life. Visual effects by Digital Domain, Industrial Light & Magic, Weta Digital, SSVFX and Scanline.
