TENET - Final Trailer.
An unnamed CIA agent - referred to as "The Protagonist" - participates in an undercover SWAT operation at a Kiev opera house, rescuing an exposed spy and capturing a strange artifact. He is saved from being shot by a masked soldier with a distinctive red tag on his rucksack. The Protagonist is captured and tortured before he consumes a cyanide pill. He later awakens and learns the pill was fake, his colleagues are dead, the artifact was taken, and that the Kiev mission was a test.
The Protagonist's boss points him to a secret organisation called "Tenet", leading him to Laura (Clémence Poésy), a scientist studying bullets whose entropy has been "inverted" so they move backward through time. The Protagonist traces the bullets to Priya Singh (Dimple Kapadia), a Mumbai arms dealer and member of Tenet. With the help of Neil (Robert Pattinson), a supposed local, the Protagonist (John David Washington) infiltrates Priya's compound and learns the bullets are supplied by Russian oligarch Andrei Sator (Kenneth Branagh), who is communicating with the future. The Protagonist meets with Sator's estranged wife, Kat (Elizabeth Debicki), and discovers Sator is blackmailing her with a forged painting she had sold him to keep her from their son. Kat adds that the last time she and Sator were truly happy was on their yacht in Vietnam, where she later saw another woman dive from the ship.
The Protagonist and Neil work with fixer Mahir (Himesh Patel) to steal the painting from a storage facility at Oslo Airport, by crashing a cargo jet into the hangar as a diversion. Inside the facility, they find a machine from which two masked men emerge, one of which is inverted. After unmasking the normal one, Neil stops the Protagonist from killing the inverted one. Priya later explains that the machine was a "Turnstile" - a time inversion device developed in the future - and that the two masked men were the same person. The Protagonist lies to Kat that the painting was destroyed, and she arranges a meeting with Sator. Sator reveals that he had the painting moved before the crash. During a boating trip, Kat attempts to drown Sator but the Protagonist saves him. The Protagonist offers to steal a case of plutonium Sator desires in exchange for Kat's freedom. The Protagonist and Neil steal the "plutonium" from an armoured convoy in Tallinn, but realise it is actually another artifact.
