Christofer Nolan’s latest film, Tenet, had a long road to the screens. Is this road now, finally, coming to an end? The movie, which was supposed to premiere earlier this month, was delayed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now it finally gets a new premiere date.
The most recent change the movie had seen was its pulling out from the August release calendar by Warner Bros. now the studio announced Tenet will have an early international premiere in 70 countries on August 26. Then, on September 4, it will premiere in “select cities” in the U.S.
The movie will premiere first in countries such as Belgium, Germany, Denmark, the UK, and other European countries as well as Australia, Korea, Egypt, Thailand, Indonesia, and more. It will hit Canada a day before it will arrive in the U.S. on September 3.
By releasing the movie early abroad, Warner Bros. hopes to make the best of the situation in which many countries around the world see a relative decline of the pandemic, while many cities in the U.S. still struggle with the disease. This ,means that theaters remain closed in major markets such as New York and Los Angeles.
