'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'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.

“We are excited that our partners at Warner Bros. will offer a new generation of film fans the opportunity to enjoy Inception the way it was originally intended to be seen — on the big screen. Over these last months we have been keeping Warner Bros. closely informed of our work towards reopening our theatres in accordance with governmental health and safety requirements, and we are looking forward to audiences enjoying Tenet in our theaters all around the world on July 31st,” the National Association of Theater Owners said in a statement.

Kenneth Branagh Gives Insight Into 'Tenet' & His Character

Kenneth Branagh is one of the stars of the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie Tenet and it seems he was just as confused by the film’s plot as his co-stars.

Robert has said that he had no idea what was happening in the movie while they were filming it.

Kenneth said that he had to read the script more times than he’s read any other script before.

“I kid you not, I read this screenplay more times than I have ever read any other thing I have ever worked on,” he told Total Film (via Syfy). “It was like doing the Times crossword puzzle every day, I would imagine. Except the film and the screenplay didn’t expect you, or need you, to be an expert.”

Kenneth was asked if he plays the antagonist in the movie and he said, “Given the nature of it, as Chris to some extent sort of reinvents the wheel here, a lot of people start engaging with John David Washington‘s character in both expected ways…so you might expect me to be an antagonist…but then [the story] doesn’t quite follow what you might expect as the story plays out.”

The movie is going to keep fans guessing about the character throughout the film.

“In the playing of it, and in the scenes, he keeps upturning, or playing forward and backward, our expectations of what the character should be,” he said. “So my conversations with [Nolan] about my character were constant, because the character’s evolution was not set. It was a series of constant surprises.”
