In conversation with The Playlist, Christopher Nolan described an original rap song written by Travis Scott for the film’s soundtrack as “the final piece” in Tenet’s puzzle.
His voice became the final piece of a yearlong puzzle. His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound. I can’t even explain it. You literally just have to watch it. It’s very fire.
Wonder Woman 1984
Patty Jenkins briefly discussed “the long journey” it took to finalise Cheetah’s design on Twitter.
Wonder Woman 1984 will see Diana of Themyscira facing off against one of her greatest rivals: Barbara Ann Minerva, also known as Cheetah.

Extremely hard. We wanted it to look fantastic and that ended up being very complex. First, the most incredible design then figuring out how to execute it was a long journey. It ended up being a mix of practical and visual effects but it was worth it to make it look amazing! https://t.co/gdXcM4zTjC

The New Mutants
Magik prepares to take on the Demon Bear in the latest clip from New Mutants.
Meanwhile, Disney has two new posters.
Total Film (via Games Radar) has three new images from Nia Dacosta’s Candyman remake.
Netflix has released a new poster for Enola Holmes.
Jon Favreau spoke to THR about the safety protocols The Mandalorian will undertake before filming season three.
The fact that the set is much more contained is a benefit, because you can limit the number of people. A lot of the people controlling it are doing it remotely from what we call the Brain Bar, which is a bank of gaming computers, essentially. The amount of people near the camera could be much smaller than [usual]. We also shoot a lot outside, which is helpful, too. We build to a moment in filming more like an animated production, where we have a lot of storyboards, a lot of discussions and scouting in virtual reality. We use cinematic tools in VR much the same way we did for The Lion King and The Jungle Book. A lot of times the actors you are seeing on the screen aren’t actually there on set.
