Poirot solves a theft in Jerusalem and then takes a boat to Istanbul where he is asked to go to London to solve another case. Thanks to his friend Bouc, he gets to board the Orient Express, where he meets his fellow passengers. Amongst them is Ratchett who asks Poirot to be his bodyguard, but the detective refuses. During the night, the train is blocked by snow. Ratchett is found dead the next morning from a dozen stab wounds. A partially burnt note reveals that Ratchett was in reality Cassetti, the kidnapper and murderer of Daisy Armstrong, a small child whose death in America a few years earlier lead to the death of both her parents. Poirot discovers evidence planted in his personal effects and eventually discovers that all the passengers have a link to Daisy Armstrong, to the maid who was convicted instead of Cassetti or to the prosecutor who was pressured into convicting the maid. All have a motive to kill Cassetti, and Poirot concludes that they all participated in the crime; one of them, Daisy's grandmother, admits she planned the murder and recruited the others. Concluding that justice is impossible in this case, and against his principles, Poirot lies to the Yugoslavian police after the train is freed from the snow and has reached the next town. Poirot does not continue his journey to London, as he is contacted by the British authorities who ask him to investigate a death on the nile.

On Christmas Eve, police detective John McClane flies fro New York to Los Angeles to spend Christmas with his family, whom he has not seen since his wife moved there for work six months ago. He meets her at her employer's building, where a party is taking place. Soon after, the building is taken by terrorists, locked down and all the employees are rounded up. John manages to escape and learn about the attackers. He first triggers a fire alarm that is cancelled by the terrorists. After having killed one of them and taken his radio, he moves to the roof to contact the police, who reluctantly sends a patrol car. Attacked by two more villains, McClane throws the body of a dead terrorist at the police as it drives away, finally getting the law enforcement full attention. A SWAT team attempts to enter the building, but they are killed by the well-prepared villains (who are actually thiefs, as they are in the process of forcing open the company's vault to steal a fortune in bearer bonds). While fighting the attackers, McClane has taken a bag containing C4 and detonators, which they really want to recover. John also discovers that the roof is set to explode. He unknowingly meets the gang's boss, Gruber, and in the ensuing fight loses the detonators. As expected by Gruber, the FBI has taken over the operation and shut down the electricity, effectively disabling the magnetic lock of the vault and allowing the thieves to plunder it. Still posing as terrorists and having demanded a helicopter, Gruber gets all the hostages to the roof, planning to make it explode as the helicopter lands and to escape through the basement in the ensuing confusion. McClane however manages to get the people down from he roof before it explodes. As Gruber has discovered the existence of John's wife Holly, he threatens to kill her if John does not surrender. McClane does so, after having hidden a gun on his back that he uses to kill Gruber.

Mexican special prosecutor Miguel Vargas takes an interest in the investigation of a murder that has just happened in a town along the US-Mexican border where he is honeymooning with his American wife Susie. The investigation is led by veteran police captain Hank Quinlan who, Vargas quickly comes to notice, fabricates evidence to justify arresting people he believes are guilty. Joe Grandi, leader of the crime family Vargas has been investigating, associates with Quinlan against Vargas. He sends his boys to the isolated and empty motel where Susie is waiting for her husband, where they leave traces of drug use before kidnapping her and taking her into town. Quinlan then kills Grandi and leaves his body in the hotel room where Susie is kept prisoner, but forgets his cane. In the meanwhile, Vargas studies old arrest reports from Quinlan to find evidence of the policeman's unethical methods. After Grandi's body is found by the police and Susie put in prison for drug usage, Quinlan's sergeant Menzies tells Vargas of what happened and his suspicions that his superior killed Grandi. Together they come up with the plan to get Quinlan to confess while being secretly recorded. The plan works but leads to Quinlan and Menzies killing each other. Susie is exonerated, and it is revealed that the suspect of the initial murder has confessed to the crime.

In a totalitarian London, Evey is harassed by members of the political police because she's walking outside after curfew. She is saved by a man wearing a Guy Fawkes mask who introducing himself as “V”. V takes Evey to the roof of a building to admire his work: destroying the Old Bailey. The next morning, by hijacking the public television network, V invites the citizens to join him in exactly on year from now, on November 5th, outside the House of Parliament. Evey helps V escape and he takes her to his lair. V kills three members of the ruling political party, the last one with Evey's help, but she betrays him and flees. Finch, a policeman assigned to capture V, discovers that twenty years earlier the murder victims were all working at a secret facility doing research on human beings to create a new virus. Only one human guinea pig developed a natural immunity, allowing to produce a cure, but he escaped the facility during a fire. The virus killed hundred of thousands in what was presumed to be a terrorist attack. The political situation then allowed Sutler, the head of the now ruling party, to seize power and install a dictatorship. Simultaneously, selling the cure enriched some members of the party. Evey takes shelter with her former boss, but his house is attacked because his latest TV show makes fun of Sutler. Evey hides, but is eventually caught, imprisoned and tortured. She refuses to submit to her captors and is then released and discovers she was actually being manipulated by V who was teaching her (the hard way) how not to be afraid anymore. Realizing that V is avenging the death of human guinea pigs, she promises to see him again before November 5th. V then convinces Creedy, head of the secret police, to betray Sutler and replace him in exchange of V's surrender. As November 5th approaches, V distributes hundreds of thousand of Guy Fawkes masks across the country leading to a rise of anonymous chaos and eventually riots. V takes Evey to the restored London underground where a train full of explosives is programmed to go under the House of Parliament and gives her the choice to start the train or not. V then meets Creed who delivers Sutler to him and he kills them both, getting mortally wounded in the process before going and lying down in the train. Finch finds Evey and V's body at that moment, but he allows to start the train. With Sutler and Creedy dead, the soldiers deployed on the street have no order to stop the countless citizens dressed as V as the converge towards Parliament House and witness its destruction.

The Protagonist, a CIA agent who retrieved an artefact during an operation in Kyiv is hired by Tenet. The organization briefs him on objects (such as bullets) who move backwards through time. With his handler Neil, he traces the source of those objects to an arms dealer, Priya Singh, in Mumbai. Priya is also a member of Tenet and obtains the inverted bullets from Russian oligarch Andrei Sator who can communicate with the future. Sator's estranged wife Kat is an art appraiser who authenticated a forged Goya by her friend Arepo. Sator uses the painting to blackmail his wife. The Protagonist buys Kat's help by trying to recover the Goya from a freeport facility at Oslo airport, but the attempt is thwarted by two masked men who emerge from either side of a machine. Priya later explains the machine is a turnstile, used for inverting: the two people were the same person traveling in opposite directions in time. She also explains that Sator sabotaged the CIA operation in Kyiv and that the police got the artifact, which is Pu-241. Kat introduces the Protagonist to her husband and both agree to cooperate to recover the artefact in Tallinn while it is transported by road, but an inverted Sator holding Kat hostage attempts steals it from them. The Protagonist hides the artefact and is captured with Neil by Sator who interrogates them at a freeport facility and shoots Kat with an inverted bullet. Tenet troops arrive but Sator escapes via a turnstile. They all invert themselves to save Kat's life, and the inverted Protagonist drives back to the ambush to retrieve the artefact, but encounters Sator who takes it. The Protagonist and his gang then travels back in time to the freeport in Oslo, fights his past self, enter the turnstile with Neil and Kat and all get de-inverted. He then meets Priya who reveals that Sator know has all nine pieces of the Algorithm, a device designed by antagonists from the future to invert the world and destroy its past. The Protagonist remembers a past conversation and realizes that Sator will detonate the Algorithm in his hometown of Stalsk-12 on a past day, in order to deliver it to the antagonists of the future. On a Tenet ship traveling back to the day of the detonation, Kat reveals that Sator is sick and dying. He will go back to a happy moment in his life, on the same day, on his yacht in Vietnam, and commit suicide, his death triggering the detonation. Kat poses as her former self and prevents Sator from killing himself long enough for two Tenet commandos, one going forward in time and one backwards, to make a diversion, allowing the Protagonist to steal the Algorithm. He is trapped by Sator's man who puts him in contact with Sator from Vietnam. Sator reveals the antagonists want to escape the effects of climate change. An inverted Neil then sacrifices himself, allowing the Protagonist to recover the Algorithm. Not-yet-dead Neil reveals he was hired by the future Protagonist and then goes and gets inverted to help recover the Algorithm. Later Priya plans to kill Kat, because she knows too much. The Protagonist realizes he created Tenet and kills Priya first.

At the rendezvous, she discovers the Fran, the cook, drugged and tied to a chair. While Marta calls for help, Fran reveals where in the house a copy of the toxicology report is hidden. Caught up by Blanc, she confesses to him (although Ransom had already told him the story); as she caused Harlan's death, she cannot anymore inherit. Back at the house, the report shows that Harlan only had traces of morphine in his blood. Blanc reveals his deductions to the family: Ransom had swapped the contents of the medicine bottles to ensure that Marta would kill Harlan. But Marta still gave the correct medication because out of habit she identified the drugs by their viscosity and only later noticed the labels were wrong. Ransom then anonymously hired Blanc to expose Marta. As Fran saw Ransom tampering with the medication, she blackmailed him, and when he learned that Marta had not killed Harlan, he forwarded the blackmail note to her and burnt the medical examiner's office to destroy the evidence before overdosing Fran. Blanc and Marta manage to get Ransom to confess by pretending that Fran survived the overdose.

Sue Charlton, an American journalist, goes into the Australian bush to meet Mick “Crocodile” Dundee who is said to have survived an attack by a crocodile and crawled back home minus one leg. In Walkabout Creek she discovers the story is exaggerated, despite Mick having a bite wound in his calf. They travel together for two days in the wild, retracing Mick's steps on his trip back home. Sue discovers a beautiful country, some of the customs of the aboriginals, and not-quiet falls in love with Mick. She invites him to come back with her in New York. There Mick discovers a world very different from what he knows and commits several social blunders. Sue's fiancé Richard looks down on Mick because they obviously do not have the same upbringing. After one evening in town, Sue and Mick kiss. On the next day, Sue, Richard and Mick are invited to dinner at Sue's father's mansion, where Richard proposes to Sue; she does not reject him, so he assumes she agrees. Mick spends the rest of the night getting drunk and is attacked by a pimp (who he had punched a few days before when he was chatting with prostitutes, unaware of their trade) and saved by Sue's family's driver. The next morning he leaves the hotel and plans to walkabout around America. Sue arrives just after he left, and she runs after him to the subway station. From one end the platform, packed with people, she tells Mick, who is on the other end, that she loves him. As they are too far away, their dialog is relayed by a few people in the crowd.

Mr. Peabody is a talking, very intelligent dog who has adopted a boy, Sherman. Together they travel in time for fun in a machine invented by Peabody named WABAC. When Sherman starts school, he is soon bullied by Penny because his father is a dog. A fight ensues, after which social services, in the person of Mrs. Grunion threaten to take Sherman away from his father. Peabody invites Penny's parents in an attempt to convince them to withdraw their complaint, but Sherman is teased by Penny about George Washington and the cherry tree, reveals the existence of WABAC and takes her to ancient Egypt. Sherman comes back alone and asks Peabody for help, as Penny has stayed behind and wants to marry Tutankhamun. Father and son travel back to Egypt and convince Penny to come back with them. As they are out of fuel, they stop in Florence to visit Leonardo da Vinci who helps them build a device that will jump-start WABAC. During their stay, Sherman and Penny bond. On their way back, Sherman learns that he risks being taken away from his father, they argue, and accidentally arrive during the Trojan war. They have an accident with the horse, Peabody is presumed dead and the two children go back to the present, a few minutes before they have left, to ask help from the earlier Peabody. Grunion arrives soon after and wants to take Sherman away and the Peabody that was thought dead suddenly appears (having built another WABAC in Troy). This causes a confusion in which Sherman touches his earlier self, the tow boys merge which creates a cosmic shockwave that causes the various pasts they have visited to pour into the present. More confusion ensues, at the end of which Grunion's attempt to take Sherman is opposed by Washington and all the other historical characters. Peabody and Sherman then travel a few minutes in the future to repair the rip in spacetime and all historical characters return to their time, Agamemnon taking Grunion with him. Sherman returns to school and is now friends with Penny. In Troy, Agamemnon marries Grunion.

In 1969 in New York City, Indy is old, depressed, and retires from his work at the university; Marion is going to divorce him and his son Mutt died in the Vietnam war. He is contacted by Shaw's daughter Helena who wants to recover the Antikythera. She tells Indy that her late father believed that the mechanism was built to locate a fracture is space-time that would allow to travel back in time. Helena, in debt, just wants to to sell it. They are chased by Voller's men, assisted by the CIA (as Voller played an important role in the Apollo project), but manage to escape through the parade celebrating the Moon landing. Indy, suspected of the murders committed by Voller's men, chases Helena to Tangiers where he prevents the sale of the mechanism in an auction. Accompanied by Helena's young friend Teddy, they escape on a tuk-tuk and are chased by both Voller's men and Helena's former fiancé, a gangster. Voller, disavowed after going rogue, is apprehended by the CIA, but manages to escape. Indy and his friends follow Voller to Greece, where, with the help of a friend, they dive in the Aegean Sea to the second half of the wreck where the mechanism was first found, located much deeper, in order to recover a graphikos that contains coded indications as to the location of the other half of the mechanism. Voller's gang catches up with them again, but they again manage to escape and go to Archimedes' tomb in Sicily, as indicated by the graphikos. Inside a labyrinthine cavern, Indy and Helena find the tomb and the second half of the dial, and notice that Archimedes' skeleton wears a modern wristwatch. Voller appears, wounds and captures Indy. His plan is to travel back to Munich in 1939 to kill Hitler and take his place. They fly away on a WWII German bomber. Helena, who has followed them manages to stow away in the landing gear, and Teddy follows them on a small airplane. They go through the time fissure and arrive at the Siege of Syracuse in 212 BC. Voller's plane is shot down, Indy and Helena manage to jump with a parachute. They meet Archimedes (who has taken the wristwatch from Voller's body) and Indy says he wants to stay here and now to see History happening. Helena knocks him out and takes him back to the present, where he reconciles with Marion.

After Mr. Wing dies, the mogwai Gizmo becomes the guinea pig of scientists at a lab in the Clamp Center, a state-of-the-art highrise building in Manhattan owned by eccentric billionaire Daniel Clamp. At the mercy of the chief researcher Dr. Catheter, Gizmo is rescued by his former owner Billy Peltzer and his fiancée Kate, both of whom work elsewhere in the building. Gizmo accidentally gets wet and spawns four evil mogwais who quickly move through the building until they find the restaurants in the shopping area and eat food after midnight, becoming gremlins. They set off the fire sprinklers, quickly spawning thousand more gremlins, some of them changing shape by drinking genetic serums from the lab; one of them becomes pure electricity but gets trapped in the building's telephone system. Billy manages to convince Clamp of danger and devises a plan: move all the clocks of the building forward, attract all the gremlins in the lobby and fool them into exiting the building while the sun is still up. Clamp exits through his secret escape route and coordinate with the emergency services outside. Alas, a thunderstorm hides the sun just as they were ready to let the gremlins out. Billy then sprays all the gathered gremlins with a fire hose and releases the electric one from the phone system, killing them all (except one that was turned into a female and is enticing the chief of security to marry her).

In 1971, the Washington Post struggles financially and her owner Kay Graham decides that the company needs to become publicly traded. At the same time, the New York Times publishes an article based on a leaked military report showing that the Vietnam war is not going well, and that the US never had any hope of winning it. An injunction from the Department on Justice forbids the Times to publish any more articles based on those documents, but a few journalists from the Post manage to identify the leak and to acquire a copy of the secret report. Kay asserts her position as owner and publisher of the Post and decides to publish despite the injunction that arguably also applies to the Post, rebelling against Nixon's attempt to restrain the freedom of the Press. She of course has to take this decision just in the critical period during which the banks investing through the IPO have a right to cancel their transactions. The Post and the Time go to court shortly after and eventually all the way up to the Supreme Court, which confirms the freedom of the press.

When a US submarine sinks near the Cayman Trough after an encounter with an unidentified entity, the nearby underwater drilling platform Deep Core is sent to attempt a rescue, accompanied with a SEAL team. They do not find any survivor, but one of the civilians sees a non-terrestrial entity. Believing it to be a Soviet submarine, the SEALs take the platform's largest submarine for secretly recovering one of the submarine's nuclear warhead, preventing the platform's crew from disconnecting its tether to their surface base, the Explore, before the coming storm rips it off. The tether's reel is ripped off the Explorer and drags Deep Core to the edge of the trench, partially flooding the platform and killing several people. While waiting, the crew sees another manifestation of the NTI as a pseudopod that also takes a look at the nuclear warhead. This prompts the SEAL's leader, suffering from paranoia due to high-pressure nervous syndrome, to use one of the platform's ROV to deliver the warhead to the NTI inhabiting the trench. A battle and an underwater chase ensues in which the SEAL is killed. The chief of the platform, Bud, then decides to use a diving suit equipped with a liquid-breathing apparatus brought by the SEALs to dive into the trench and disarm the warhead. He has do dive deeper than planned and has not oxygen left for the return trip. Waiting to die, he is rescued by the NTI who show him television images of humans killing each other in wars, as well as gigantic tsunami, created by the NTI, threatening all the coasts of the world. They however stop the waves as Bud has shown, by risking his life to save the NTIs, that they are also capable of compassion. The NTI's underwater mothership, carrying Bud, then rises to the surface, lifting Deep Core and saving the crew's lives (magically removing the need for decompression).

Three convicts, Pete, Delmar and Ulysses escape from a chain gang in order to retrieve a treasure in a place that will soon be flooded to make a lake. They first seek refuge at Pete's cousin's who betrays them to the police. They manage to escape in a car and pick up Tommy, a guitar player. In need for money, they stop at a radio station who pays singers to record their songs and introduce themselves as the Soggy Bottom Boys. They part with Tommy after their car is found by the police. Their song becomes a hit, and producers start to search for the band; the trio knows nothing of that. Later near a river, they encounter three women washing clothes and singing. The women get them drunk and they lose consciousness. They wake up alone, Pete gone with only his clothes left, inhabited by a toad; Delmar believes that the women have transformed their friend. Later in a town, they meet a Big Dan, a one-eyed Bible salesman who gets them to invite him to a picnic, where Big Dan mugs them and kills the toad. On their way to Ulysses' home town, they see Pete working in a chain gang. Once in town, Ulysses confronts his ex-wife Penny who is about to re-marry with Vernon, the campaign manager of Stokes, opposing the current governor in the next election. Penny had told their daughters that Ulysses was dead, and the latter gets beaten by Vernon. Ulysses and Delmar free Pete from his jail; under torture he had revealed the location of the treasure. Ulysses confesses there is no treasure, he fabricated the story to convince the two men chained to him to help him escape so that he could get back to his wife. The trio then stumble upon a Ku Klux Klan rally about to lynch Tommy. They disguise as Klan members to rescue him, but are recognized by Big Dan. Chaos ensues, killing Big Dan and revealing that Stokes is the Grand Wizard. Ulysses convinces his two friends to help him win his wife back, so they sneak into the campaign gala dinner and sing their radio hit, getting acclaimed by the crowd. Stokes arrives, recognizes them, demands them to be arrested, and reveals his white supremacist views. The crowd runs him out of town on a rail, and the current governor, seizing the opportunity, grants them pardon in public. Penny agrees to marry Ulysses if he gets her original ring, left in a house in the valley which will be flooded. The next morning, they arrives at the house but they are arrested by the sheriff who is set on hanging them on the spot. They are saved by the incoming flood; Tommy finds the ring in a desk that floats by, and Ulysses finally gives it to Penny. She complains it's the wrong one and that she will not marry him until he finds the right one.
