Warner Bros. is once again moving its Christopher Nolan sci-fi mind-bender Tenet. The studio had a serious shake-up of release dates for its movies recently and this is now another shift due to COVID-19
Tenet was set for 31 July but the new date the is 12 August, meaning that the 10 anniversary reissue of Nolan’s Inception now will open on 31 July instead of 17 July.
This is what the studio had to say about the changes:
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. 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.
