Prince Philip Has Been Cast For The Final Seasons Of 'The Crown'

  Prince Philip Has Been Cast For The Final Seasons Of 'The Crown' Joining Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth IIAs is the custom for Peter Morgan's award-winning, big budget Netflix show chronicling the lives of the British royal family, the actors are replaced every two seasons so as to reflect the ages and likenesses of the royals as we move through the decades.

Elizabeth Debicki (born 24 August 1990) is an Australian actress. After studying drama at the Victorian College of the Arts, she made her film debut with a brief role in the Australian comedy A Few Best

The biggest fan theory doing the rounds regarding Tenet is that Kat ( Elizabeth Debicki ), Sator' s wife, is actually the mother of Neil (Robert Pattinson). We can't confirm this theory, because the film doesn't explicitly say this – but the reasoning is sound. Here' s what some are referring to as the smoking gun.

Christopher Nolan's Tenet was charged with the insurmountable task of saving cinema from *gestures wildly around* and it seems he's basically done it. Whatever your feelings about the film are, in the UK at least the timey-wimey heist film has pulled in great numbers at the box office and, it seems, people are heading to cinemas to see it.

Ludwig Göransson reveals Christopher Nolan's heavy breathing is part of 'Tenet' score

  Ludwig Göransson reveals Christopher Nolan's heavy breathing is part of 'Tenet' score Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson has revealed that Christopher Nolan’s heavy breathing was incorporated into the score for Tenet. The 35-year-old told journalists at the Tenet press conference that he began work on the movie six months before cameras rolled, enabling the score to be assembled in tandem with the film. He said that guitars were a big part of the score, with distortion effects and manipulations used to create something entirely unique.

TENET is the big movie hoping to draw us back into the cinemas amid the coronavirus crisis. In the run-up to the Tenet opening one anti-piracy expert, who chose to remain anonymous, said in an interview The expert said: "In some ways ‘ Tenet ’ is a perfect storm for piracy, in that it has raised

" Tenet ": Enter Elizabeth Debicki . 01 August 2020. Debicki made her film debut in " A Few Best Men" (2011). From an audition tape, director Baz Luhrmann cast her as 'Jordan Baker' in "The Great Gatsby" (2013).

We're not surprised — the anticipation for Tenet has been mounting and, unlike The New Mutants (sorry) all the press leading up to it has been positive. That it's finally in cinemas in the UK and heading to US cinemas on Friday, September 4, has only buoyed the excitement for the film.

At Digital Spy, we gave it a positive four stars for its impressiveness visually, but also for the acting of its lead stars: John David Washington and Robert Pattinson. But in that leading set, there is another name whose character didn't quite give her the same recognition: Elizabeth Debicki as Kat.

Warning: Spoilers for Tenet follow.

What impressed us most about Washington and Pattinson is how much they were able to do with – sorry Mr Nolan – very thin characters. Tenet is a film that is entirely its concept — the time inversion.

Tenet Reviews: Critics Are More Mixed On Christopher Nolan's New Film Than You Might Be Expecting

  Tenet Reviews: Critics Are More Mixed On Christopher Nolan's New Film Than You Might Be Expecting The reviews are out for Christopher Nolan’s much-awaited film Tenet, and the new release seems to have divided opinion. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Tenet’s release date has been pushed back on three different occasions, with major details about the plot being kept firmly under wraps. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Tenet’s release date has been pushed back on three different occasions, with major details about the plot being kept firmly under wraps.

“‘ Tenet ’ is not so much a decipherable thriller as it is an extreme exercise in reverse-engineered narrative incomprehensibility – the cinematic equivalent of a half-baked pretzel, its goopy symmetrical loops superficial yet delicious all the same. We’re never meant to know what exactly is going on at

As such, the characters are merely mechanisms to move the plot, and the plot is merely there to make time inversion into a story as opposed to a thing. As such, there's not a lot of meat on the bones of Tenet, yet the aforementioned duo manage to captivate the screen.

Of course, Debicki is captivating too — in particular, her physical performance is astounding. Debicki's height, which so often seems to be shrouded, is in full force in Tenet. Nolan knew how to make her height part of her character (as any woman over 5'8" will tell you, being a tall woman can have its societally-normative drawbacks).

As she's trapped in the speeding car, she manages to unlock the doors with her foot from the backseat. As Kenneth Brannagh's Sator leads her down the hallway, she's hunched forward, limbs jerking forward, and her stature is impressive compared to him, a tiny man.

The first ‘Tenet’ reviews are mixed

  The first ‘Tenet’ reviews are mixed The first reviews for Tenet, Christopher Nolan’s repeatedly delayed blockbuster, have finally emerged, and they are very much a mixed bag. Let’s start off with the positive, which is that, at the moment, Tenet currently has 79% on Rotten Tomatoes after 42 reviews. That score isn’t too bad when you consider all of the hype and expectation that has surrounded Nolan’s latest time-traveling adventure, and it is above the scores for The Prestige (76%) and Interstellar (72%).

The plot is currently unknown. The project is described as an action epic revolving around international espionage, time travel, and evolution.

And yet, this is seemingly all Kat is. Her character, her importance, is down to her height and her proximity to a man; she is only useful because of her relationship to Sator, and has no other qualities that would make her helpful to the mission.

In fact, the one job she's given that she can exercise of her own accord, she basically screws up (though her murdering Sator two minutes too early doesn't actually cause problems, even though the characters panic about it for a second). Even her moments of reflection are entirely about other people — her husband, or her son.

Neil and the Protagonist both, despite their flat personalities, are useful in and of themselves; their worth isn't tied to each other, or anyone else. They are key, they are the men who will save the world, whereas Kat is an accessory, a tool to be used in their quest and a symbol of all of Sator's hatred and need for control (which is heavy-handedly explained).

Tenet review: Christopher Nolan's mind-bending time opera is a complete thrill-ride - just don't expect to understand it

  Tenet review: Christopher Nolan's mind-bending time opera is a complete thrill-ride - just don't expect to understand it Footage shows a collapsed bridge in Giresun, Turkey, on Tuesday (August 25) following devastating floods that have killed at least nine people. The concrete structure over a creek gave way following an ''unprecedented amount of rainfall in the area'' which caused devastation, with cars washed away and buildings damaged. A river which burst its banks flooded the city with muddy water and carried huge boulders from mountains through the streets. The Ministry of Interior Disaster and Emergency Management Authority said that more than 150 people were rescued. However, authorities are still searching for at least eight people who are still missing.

Got anymore Elizabeth Debicki Feet Pictures? Big they are, and big is my crush on long slender pale feet belonging to gorgeous women. Can you imagine starting at the tip of her lovely, graceful feet and lazily journeying your way up? I’m guessing this is from the filming of Tenet .

In the set images, lead actress Elizabeth Debicki is pictured carrying a blue book with Shakespeare’ s face on the cover. Now, in the ‘80 s , a writer named Sarah Montoya perpetuated a ‘Shakespeare’ s Lost Palindrome’ hoax, claiming to have discovered a previously missing page from Hamlet in a box of

Does every character need to be fleshed out? No, of course not. But for a seemingly lead character, one who is integral to the plan to save the world, it would have been nice for her value not to be tied to a man, for her worth to come from an innate quality, skill, talent, or desire.

Instead, she is subject to the whims of the push-pull of time inversion. She spends a good chunk of the film unconscious on a gurney, a literal prop to the two lead stars.

If Tenet had other women of more substance, it might not have been so egregious, or obvious, an oversight. We have Dimple Kapadia's Priya, a thinly laid out baddie who, like Kat, is merely a tool, and a symbol for "the big bad patriarchy" (again, we're helpfully and hamfistedly reminded of this in the dialogue) but Nolan doesn't seem to know what to do with these observations he's made about women's place in a "man's world".

Then there's Clémence Poésy's Barbara, the scientist who "explains" time inversion to the audience (and the Protagonist of course) and is never seen or heard from again. There's Wheeler (Fiona Dourif), the woman version of Aaron Taylor Johnson's Ives who is given a handful of lines, a meagre amount compared to Johnson's, and is far less important to the story.

We don't want to make it seem like we didn't enjoy Tenet in spite of all this. We did — but there are undoubtedly women watching this film and noticing this, and wondering when it will be their turn to be the Protagonist.
