The Big Idea

With cinemas re-opening after lockdown, it was important, more than ever before, to make a big splash about Tenet’s release and drive ticket sales.

Warner Bros wanted to showcase the trailer and also tap into the film’s time theme and strapline: Time Runs Out.

We created a high impact campaign with two different creative innovations, exclusive to All 4.

Burst 1 was a Dynamic creative, building awareness of the film with a counting down to the day of release, creating anticipation and excitement. The format showcased the trailer alongside the countdown and the film’s key Time Runs Out message.

For burst 2, we created a Personalised Audio campaign tapping into our registered user database of 23 million. To capture their attention and create stand out for the film, viewers heard and saw their name at the beginning of the trailer; this was then followed by the Time Runs Out message and a call to action to book tickets now.
