'Tenet' Movie Reviews Revealed - See What Critics Thought!

We’re just days away from Christopher Nolan‘s highly anticipated movie Tenet being released in areas across the globe and the first reviews have been released!

A select group of critics were given the chance to see the movie before the rest of the world and the Rotten Tomatoes score at the time of this posting is a strong 82% fresh rating.

Even though the film currently has a high score, there are only 38 reviews and the number could change when more reviews are posted. Most of the reviews out there right now seem to be mixed. The website’s critics consensus says, “A visually dazzling puzzle for film lovers to unlock, Tenet serves up all the cerebral spectacle audiences expect from a Christopher Nolan production.”

TheWrap‘s Nicholas Barber said, “In the end, Tenet isn’t one of Nolan‘s most satisfying films. But after I’ve seen it four or five more times, maybe I’ll change my mind.”

The Hollywood Reporter‘s Leslie Felperin said, “Altogether, it makes for a chilly, cerebral film – easy to admire, especially since it’s so rich in audacity and originality, but almost impossible to love, lacking as it is in a certain humanity.”

The Guardian‘s Catherine Shoard said, “The world is more than ready for a fabulous blockbuster… It’s a real shame Tenet isn’t it.”

Tenet will hit select theaters in the U.S. on September 3.

Seth Rogen Takes Dig at Christopher Nolan Over 'Tenet' Release Amid the Pandemic

Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet release schedule has been filled with controversy after it was scheduled to be released in July 2020, then August 2020 during the rising Coronavirus cases around the country.

Warner Bros. officially postponed the movie until September, but one actor and producer took notice. Seth Rogen and his production company Point Grey have been navigating the pandemic like the rest of the world…but that didn’t stop him from taking a dig at Nolan.

“I’m waiting to see what Chris Nolan does,” Seth told THR. “‘WWCND’ is basically what we’re saying at all times. ‘What would Chris Nolan do?’ For a while, it seemed like the answer was to kill his greatest fans. But that’s not the answer of today, it seems, so that’s good. But we have no idea. We don’t want to be the first to rush into anything.”

With Coronavirus, health officials recommend more low risk, outdoor activities promoting mask use and social distancing and movie theaters have been one business that has been greatly effected by the pandemic.

'Tenet' Will Hit Theaters in Select U.S. Cities, Even if N.Y. & L.A. Remain Closed

The new Christopher Nolan movie Tenet will be hitting theaters in the United States on September 3, but only select cities will get to see the movie.

Warner Bros. just announced that the movie is going to be released internationally in more than 70 countries on August 26, followed by the Labor Day weekend release in the states.

The movie was supposed to hit theaters on July 17, but the coronavirus pandemic has caused the release to be delayed. Now, only cities that allow movie theaters to reopen will be playing the film.

This means that New York City and Los Angeles, the two biggest movie-going cities in the country, might not be playing the film on the weekend of release, according to THR.

We’ll have to wait and see if the coronavirus cases trend down before we’ll know more.

Disney just announced some major changes to the release calendar due to the pandemic.

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.

Christopher Nolan Denies Anne Hathaway's Comment That He Bans Chairs From Set

Christopher Nolan is responding to Anne Hathaway‘s comments that he bans chairs from the sets of his films.

Chris also doesn’t allow chairs. I worked with him twice. He doesn’t allow chairs, and his reasoning is, if you have chairs, people will sit, and if they’re sitting, they’re not working,” Anne said in a recent interview.

Well, Christopher‘s rep has now responded to Anne‘s statements.

“For the record, the only things banned from [Christopher Nolan's] sets are cell phones (not always successfully) and smoking (very successfully),” Christopher‘s rep said in a statement (via IndieWire). “The chairs Anne was referring to are the directors chairs clustered around the video monitor, allocated on the basis of hierarchy not physical need. Chris chooses not to use his but has never banned chairs from the set. Cast and crew can sit wherever and whenever they need and frequently do.”

There has been some more Christopher Nolan news recently amid the pandemic.

Anne Hathaway Reveals the Surprising Reason Why Christopher Nolan Bans Chairs From His Movie Sets

Anne Hathaway is opening up about the interesting thing that happens on the set of director Christopher Nolan‘s movies.

The Oscar-winning actress says that Nolan bans chairs from being on set because he doesn’t want people to sit around and waste time.

Chris also doesn’t allow chairs. I worked with him twice. He doesn’t allow chairs, and his reasoning is, if you have chairs, people will sit, and if they’re sitting, they’re not working,” Anne said in an interview with former co-star Hugh Jackman for Variety’s Actors on Actors series.

“I mean, he has these incredible movies in terms of scope and ambition and technical prowess and emotion. It always arrives at the end under schedule and under budget. I think he’s onto something with the chair thing,” she added.

Anne worked with Nolan on the movies Interstellar and The Dark Knight Rises. Hugh worked with him on the movie The Prestige.

Christopher Nolan's 'Tenet' Pushed Back Another Two Weeks to August 2020

Fans will have to wait another couple weeks to see the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie Tenet as Warner Bros. has decided to push its release again.

The film was originally scheduled to be released in theaters on July 17, but then the studio decided to delay the release to July 31 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Movie theaters around the country are planning on reopening on July 15, but COVID-19 cases are rising in the U.S. and things might change for reopening plans. The Tenet release date is now going to be August 12, but this could still change.

“Warner Bros. is committed to bringing Tenet to audiences in theaters, on the big screen, when exhibitors are ready and public health officials say it’s time,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement (via Variety). “In this moment what we need to be is flexible, and we are not treating this as a traditional movie release. We are choosing to open the movie mid-week to allow audiences to discover the film in their own time, and we plan to play longer, over an extended play period far beyond the norm, to develop a very different yet successful release strategy.”

Warner Bros. will bring the 10th anniversary edition of Nolan‘s Inception to theaters on July 31.
