Tenet taken off the release schedules, still planned for 2020

Christopher Nolan’s Tenet isn’t going to be landing in mid-August anymore, and it looks as though its cinema release is now set to be staggered.

Well, it seemed inevitable in the end. With American cinemas struggling to stay open, and attendances in places around the world where multiplexes have opened on the low side, Warner Bros has announced that it’s once again moving the release date of Christopher Nolan’s eagerly-awaited new film, Tenet.

This time, though, the move comes without a new date being announced. Instead, a statement from Warner Bros movie boss Toby Emmerich read:

We will share a new 2020 release date imminently for ‘Tenet,’ Christopher Nolan’s wholly original and mind-blowing feature. 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.

Furthermore, it looks as if Warner Bros is moving away from the plan to release the movie simultaneously around the world when it does unleash Tenet in cinemas. It’s now looking as if the studio is willing to open the film outside of America first,  although there are no further details on that as the moment.

All eyes next on Disney’s Mulan, which remains the last hugely expensive blockbuster standing this side of the autumn…
