Two weeks ago, Warner Bros. was dead set on Tenet’s August 12th release date. However, with Coronavirus cases soaring around the country, the studio ultimately pushed the film. There is currently no new date on the books for the project.
Word around the industry is Warner Bros. is no longer seeking a conventional release in the near future. The film is also extremely likely to hit the overseas markets before U.S.
Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich expresses the studio’s commitment to the film. “We will share a new 2020 release date imminently for Tenet, Christopher Nolan’s wholly original and mind-blowing feature. We are not treating Tenet like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that.”
Only time will tell if other studios will follow Warner Bros. approach.
