Warner Bros. Pictures Again Delays 'Tenet' Release Due To Surging Coronavirus Cases in the US

We won’t be getting to see Tenet for a long time.

The Christopher Nolan film, starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson, has been delayed again, The Hollywood Reporter says.

At first the movie was delayed from July 17 to July 31, and just recently had an August 12 premiere date. However, that doesn’t look plausible as coronavirus cases in the United States surge.

Warner Bros Pictures is expected to announce a new plan for the movie in the coming days, and it’s reported that Tenet could open to overseas markets first, and then in U.S. cities where theaters can safely open.

“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,” Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich shared.

He adds, “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.”

Recently, it was reported that Christopher was insistent on a summer release, hoping that Tenet would lead the way in bringing back the movies to theaters.
