Tenet Has Yet Another Release Date For Select U.S. Theaters

The movie will be playing in theaters as it can, where it can.


Director Christopher Nolan's new film Tenet finally, for real, has a release date that is seemingly likely to stick. Recent rumors from last week indicated that the film could launch internationally before a domestic release, and that is true: Tenet will debut internationally on August 26 before opening in select cities in North America on September 2. In all, the movie will be launching at the end of August in 70 international territories, including Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and the United Kingdom. This news comes after Warner Bros. recently indicated it would be shelving a traditional release for the film altogether amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It's unclear how long Tenet will be in American theaters, and for how long.

This is the third time Tenet has been delayed and then had another release date set, but these plans seem plausible as there are also reports from Deadline that a 10th anniversary screenings of Nolan's Inception are also in the works. Nolan, a staunch advocate for film as a medium and it to remain a theater experience long before COVID-19, has said that Tenet is "most designed for the audience experience, the big screen experience."

Despite how much has been written about and anticipating Tenet's release, not much is known about the film itself. Its cast includes David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh, and Michael Caine. The plot reportedly is about spies who are tasked with preventing World War III with time travel. A trailer for Tenet recently premiered inside of Fortnite.
