Christopher Nolan fans will have to wait a bit longer for Tenet. According to Variety, Warner Bros. has delayed the film indefinitely.
On Monday, the studio pulled the highly anticipated movie from its release calendar. Tenet was planned to hit theaters Aug. 12 after being pushed back twice from its original release date of July 17. Currently, it is unsure when moviegoers can expect to see Nolan’s newest picture in theaters, but Warner Bros. will reportedly share a new date imminently.
Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich released a statement concerning the move,
“We will share a new 2020 release date imminently for Tenet, Christopher Nolan’s wholly original and mind-blowing feature. We are not treating Tenet like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that. Our goals throughout this process have been to ensure the highest odds of success for our films while also being ready to support our theater partners with new content as soon as they could safely reopen. We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from exhibitors and remain steadfast in our commitment to the theatrical experience around the world. Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to proliferate, causing us to reevaluate our release dates.”
According to Variety’s sources, Tenet will not have a traditional theatrical rollout. Since movie theaters overseas have already started to reopen, there is a chance the film could launch internationally before a domestic release. This news comes during a time of mass uncertainty from cinemas around the world who are looking to Hollywood to revive moviegoing. While most studios have postponed their major films, Nolan is confidant Tenet can usher audiences back to the theater.
