Moviegoers in Singapore can now watch Tenet with English subtitles.
This is good news for fans planning to watch (either again or for the first time) Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi spectacle, which got a lot of flak for its deliberately blaring sound mix which obscures some of the dialogue, making an already confusing movie even more confusing.
Tenet, which opened here on Aug 27, was previously screened with only Chinese subtitles. At press time, Golden Village has included sessions with the English subtitles at its VivoCity and Plaza locations.
“Understand what's happening in between masks, murmurs and explosions — and maybe you'll figure out The Protagonist's name this time,” so says a message on The Projector's Instagram account. Hopefully.

We have reached out to Warner Brothers for comment.
Since its global roll-out in late August, Tenet — which reportedly cost US$200 million (S$273 mil) to make and US100 million to market— has grossed more than US$150 million worldwide, of which US$30 million came from China. To break even, the movie has to earn US$500 million.
