Tenet is one of the most anticipated films of the year and, unfortunately, it will be even more awaited. Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, the feature has so far been postponed three times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The release of the film was scheduled to take place on August 12 and has now been postponed indefinitely, news that displeases the director’s fans.
Initially, Nolan’s film was to premiere on July 17, but it was moved to July 31, then August 12. Warner Bros. Studios has announced that it is postponing the launch indefinitely.
Toby Emmerich, president of Warner Bros. Picture, said the goal was to ensure maximum chances of success for the company’s productions while supporting new cinemas with content immediately after they reopen safely. Emmerich also said that, unfortunately, the pandemic continues to spread, which requires re-evaluating the release dates. Due to continued uncertainty, Warner Bross management was forced to abandon the next two scheduled launches.
Toby Emmerich also said that a new “imminent” release date will be announced for Tenet, which he said is a “completely original and amazing” Nolan film. He assured that the studios do not treat this feature film as a traditional global launch, and the marketing and distribution plans will reflect this approach.
Emmerich also announced that the launch of the horror fang The Conjuring 3 will be moved to June 4, 2021.
With a cast of John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine, Dimple Kapadia, and Kenneth Branagh, Tenet tells the story of a secret service agent tasked with preventing the outbreak of a third world war by reversing time.
The film has a budget of between $ 200 million and $ 225 million and is produced by Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan with the help of production companies Syncopy and Warner Bros. Pictures. The soundtrack is provided by Swedish composer Ludwig Emil Tomas Göransson.
