Why Is 'Tenet' Sticking with Summer 2020 Release Date Amid Coronavirus? Here's the Answer

Tenet‘s release date keeps getting pushed back by small increments of two weeks at a time and many are wondering why the film is not being delayed by months due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

With cases surging across the United States, fans are pointing out that the film will likely make so much less money than it would under totally normal box office circumstances.

Well, THR is explaining why the Christopher Nolan-flick is determined to be released as soon as possible.

During a phone call, when studio heads apparently urged Christopher to push back the release date for a safer and more economically sound date, he resisted. “Nolan said it wasn’t about money, but instead about the desire to be the one the first big studio films back in theaters, to show faith in the form and solidarity with exhibitors, when they’re allowed to open and say they’re ready,” THR reports.

The release date is currently set for August 12.
