Five weeks on from its release, Christopher Nolan’s historical epic Oppenheimer is still one of the most-watched films in the UK right now.

But if you’ve already seen and loved Nolan’s latest, then Netflix has an update you just might want to check out.

On Friday, the streaming service announced it had added Tenet to its platform, and it’s now available to stream.

Tenet was Nolan’s 11th film to be released, hitting cinemas in 2020, three years before Oppenheimer.

Mixing elements of science fiction and action thrillers, Tenet tells the story of a CIA agent who discovers he has the ability to alter the flow of time.

Golden Globe nominee John David Washington (star of BlacKkKlansman and Amsterdam, as well as the son of acting heavyweight Denzel) takes the lead, with Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, Himesh Patel and Aaron Taylor-Johnson also among the cast.

The movie’s roll-out was hit by several setbacks due to the Covid pandemic, and its release date was pushed back three times in total before it finally hit cinemas in August 2020.

Because of the timing of its release, and the fact it pulled in pretty mixed reviews (Tenet is possibly Nolan at his most expansive and maximalist, which it’s fair to say isn’t to everyone’s taste), there’s every chance you didn’t see it at the time, so if you’ve got a spare two and a half hours this week, why not give it a go?

And by the way, if you’re looking to stream any more of Christopher Nolan’s films, Netflix also has his early offering Memento, while the Dark Knight trilogy is streaming on Now, as is his directorial debut Following.

Meanwhile, Dunkirk is available on Amazon Prime Video, as is the Superman film Man Of Steel, which Nolan worked on and produced but notably did not direct.
