'Tenet' Gets Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Release Date After Disappointing Theatrical Run

Tenet will finally be available for people to watch at home, just in time for the holidays!

The Christopher Nolan movie debuted in theaters on September 4 after a couple months of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately because of the pandemic and all the movie theater shutdowns, the film did not reach a wide audience and had a disappointing run. The film ultimately grossed $53.8 million domestically and $347 million worldwide.

Nearly every other major movie scheduled to hit theaters in 2020 has been pushed back after seeing what happened with Tenet.

Everyone who didn’t get a chance to watch the movie in theaters will be able to watch it at home starting on December 15. The movie will be released on 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on that day.

The Tenet 4K UHD combo pack and Blu-ray will include the hourlong featurette “Looking at the World in a New Way: The Making of Tenet,” according to Deadline.

'Tenet' Struggles to Reach $30 Million at U.S. Box Office, But Does Big Numbers Internationally

The numbers are still coming in for Tenet.

The Christopher Nolan film brought in $6.7 million domestically over the weekend for a total of $29.5 million thus far in its U.S. run, THR reported Sunday (September 13).

The small box office success is largely due to movie theaters remaining closed in major markets like Los Angeles and New York City.

However, it is doing well internationally, with an estimated global gross of $207 million overall.

“In an unprecedented move, Warner Bros. has been shielding domestic grosses from public view by blocking anyone from seeing Tenet numbers on Comscore, a receptacle for real-time grosses provided by cinemas. Sources say the studio wants to control the narrative, versus having rival studios weigh in. The only number previously given out by Warners was the $20.2 million earned by Tenet through Sept. 7 after opening Sept. 3 where it could in the U.S. and the weekend before in Canada,” THR also reported.

More than 25% of the entire box office marketplace remains closed, but theaters in New Jersey and Orange County began to reopen, which proved to be a “major boost.”

Here’s why the movie would have never been released to PVOD.

'Tenet' Brings in Over $20 Million at the U.S. Box Office

Tenet is doing relatively big numbers amid the pandemic at the box office.

The Christopher Nolan movie brought in $20.2 million over Labor Day weekend, bringing its total earnings towards nearly $150 million globally, via Variety on Sunday (September 6).

The movie debuted in the United States over the holiday weekend in about 2,800 cinemas across the country, a “smaller footprint than normal for a wide release,” Variety notes.

“But Warner Bros., the studio behind the twisty thriller, is banking on it being enough to justify unspooling the $200 million-budgeted film after months of delays. Currently, about 70% of multiplexes in the U.S. have reopened, though major territories like New York City, Los Angeles, Seattle and San Francisco are still off limits.”

The movie was also generally seen as a barometer for the health of the movie theater industry amid the global health crisis.

“Hollywood has been looking to Tenet as an indicator of the viability of the movie theater business during a global health crisis. Many exhibitors reopened their cinemas in time to screen Tenet, and they are banking on pent-up demand to see a movie on the big screen for the first time since the pandemic hit in March,” the outlet reports.

Here’s how the movie kicked off internationally…

Warner Bros. CEO Explains Why 'Tenet' Would Never Have Been Released Straight to PVOD

The highly anticipated movie Tenet is now playing in theaters across the country and the CEO of Warner Bros. is opening up about why the studio never considered releasing the movie straight to PVOD.

There have been many rumors claiming that director Christopher Nolan was controlling the studio’s decisions regarding the release of the film, but Warner Bros. CEO Ann Sarnoff says this is not exactly true.

“It’s overstated. Let me share with you the process that we went through. Right when COVID struck, we started looking at alternative ways to think about movie releases. On the Scoob! front, we decided to release it on PVOD. Families were sequestered together and wanted more content. We are very happy with the results. A few weeks later it debuted on HBO Max, where we were very happy with the results as well,” Ann told THR.

She continued, “On the Tenet front, we also had a finished movie, which we are very proud for people to see. As the summer unfolded, we started thinking about more innovative ways of releasing the movie. What if we didn’t put everything up front toward the opening weekend? Theaters were very upfront about saying they could give us three to four times as many screens as normal. So that started to change our thinking. We are happy with where we are. Some markets still aren’t open, but it is a marathon and not a sprint.”

Ann was asked if the studio ever considered putting the movie on PVOD. She said, “No. It is a remarkable, cinematic, beautiful film. It is so impactful. It is a movie meant for the big screen. I’m very proud of our approach. A lot of people are pushing stuff into next year. Tenet absolutely deserves to be seen in theaters.”

Tenet is already a hit overseas and is earning lots of money so far!

Pictures exec Toby Emmerich.

'Tenet' Won't Play in Every Drive-In Movie Theater - Here's Why

If you’re hoping to see Tenet at your local drive-in movie theater on September 3, you might be out of luck.

Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. will be limiting drive-in screenings of the highly anticipated Christopher Nolan movie.

The movie will begin playing in international markets on August 26 and the U.S. release begins on September 3, but it will only play in cities that allow movie theaters to open amid the pandemic. New York and Los Angeles, the two biggest movie-going cities in the country, are not two of those cities.

Warner Bros. has reportedly decided that drive-in theaters that are located in areas where regular movie theaters are not open will NOT be allowed to show the movie. The reason is to avoid people talking about spoilers if the film is not available yet in all theaters in that area, though with social media, it seems spoilers might be hard for many people to avoid.

Find out what critics are saying about the upcoming movie.
