The movie that I was looking forward to has been officially delayed indefinitely by Warner Brothers Studios. Tenet is an upcoming spy film written and directed by Christopher Nolan. It stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kampadia, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.
The premise behind the movie is that an operative (Washington) of a secret spy organization known as TENET, has been tasked with preventing World War 3.
Having been Delayed 3 times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was scheduled to be released on July 17th, but since COVID cases have spiked across the country, Warner has made the decision to postpone the release of the movie until the safety of moviegoers can be assured by the numerous theaters around the country.
“We will share a new 2020 release date imminently for Tenet, Christopher Nolan’s wholly original and mind-blowing feature,” Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement. “We are not treating Tenet like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that.”
“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,” Emmerich said. “We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from exhibitors and remain steadfast in our commitment to the theatrical experience around the world. Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to proliferate, causing us to reevaluate our release dates.”
So what does that mean for the movie? Well it will probably get released overseas before it is released here as most places overseas have a better handle on this pandemic and are slowly opening up their theaters. It will be released here, but no word on when and what form will it get released yet.
