Tenet Gets DVD And Blu-Ray Release This December And It's Pricey

You'll be able to watch Tenet from your couch next month.


One of the most-talked about movies in 2020 is none other than Christopher Nolan's Tenet, a movie that kept getting pushed back because of COVID-19 and at one point was delayed indefinitely. Eventually, the movie hit theaters, and Nolan was actually pleased with the results. Now, it's apparently coming to the home market next month.

According to Collider's Steven Weintraub, you'll be able to watch Tenet on 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, and digitally on December 15, a little more than a month away. While the movie's global take was $350 million, without the pandemic and theater closures, it would have attracted a lot more people.

Deadline reports that the home release for the movie will be exceptionally pricey. It will retail for $45 on 4K UHD, $36 on Blu-ray, and $29 on DVD. It will feature an hour-long featurette about the making of the movie as well. Typically, new 4K UHD movies retail for $25--with some special editions coming in at $35, like an upcoming New Mutants Steelbook release. At this time, major retailers do not have a listing for Nolan's movie--although searching for the movie typically brings up a lot of tents rather than copies of Tenet.

Chances are, because of the hype and talk about the movie for the majority of the year, it should do exceptionally well in the home market, especially with Christmas right around the corner. Many would probably love to see Tenet on HBO Max--owned by Time Warner--for the holiday season, but that's not likely to happen. At the time of this writing, Warner Bros. has not commented on the film's release, but should in the coming days.

In other Warner Bros. news, the studio recently made an apology for a controversy in the HBO Max movie The Witches. In early October, Warner Bros. surprised everyone by announcing The Witches would be skipping theaters and heading straight to HBO Max.
