Christopher Nolan's Tenet Delayed To Late July

Despite the continued social quarantine in place, Tenet is still on track to release in theaters this July.


The theatrical release for Christopher Nolan's Tenet has been pushed back by two weeks--the film will now hit theaters on July 31. Instead of Tenet, select theaters will re-release Nolan's Inception on July 17 in honor of the film's 10-year anniversary.

"We're especially thrilled, in this complex and rapidly changing environment, to be bringing Christopher Nolan's Tenet, a global tentpole of jaw-dropping size, scope and scale, to theaters around the world on July 31," Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich said.

Now Playing: Fortnite - Tenet Trailer Revealed In Party Royale (Live Event)

"It's been longer than any of us could've imagined since we've seen a movie on the big screen, and to acknowledge Chris' fans as we count down to Tenet's opening day, we are also excited to offer his masterpiece Inception in theaters for its 10th anniversary on July 17."

Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The latest trailer for the film was released earlier this month and was closely followed by a TV spot.

Several other movies have been delayed or released digitally during the COVID-19 pandemic--Tenet is one of the few films that hasn't budged beyond this small delay.

As part of Play For All, GameSpot is raising money for COVID-19 relief. The event is also raising money for Black Lives Matter.
