Maybe, a delay is coming for Tenet. Or so rumors are suggesting…
It’s the first big budget ($200 million) major movie release scheduled optimistically in July for theaters to be reopened, only now according to a writer at Collider, he’s heard rumors (somebody queue the Fleetwood Mac cover) that WB is planning on delaying that date further.
For what it’s worth, I’ve heard Tenet will, in fact, be delayed, and that Warner Bros. is just trying to find a new date, which is hard since the calendar is jam-packed with big movies. That’s why there was no date on the most recent trailer. But how many films could possibly be bigger than a new Nolan movie? Tenet could always swap places with WW84, or possibly Dune, which is slated to open in December — just three days before Tom Cruise‘s Top Gun sequel.Can Tenet’s Release Date Hold? 90% of Theaters Expected to Open by July | Collider
Important to restate this is just a rumor at this point.
Could one movie delay — after so many (see: Those Polled Say Temp Taken and More Hand Sanitizer Make Them More Likely To Revisit Movie Theater) — be this big a deal? Possibly, considering it’s a movie that is being at least semi-propped up as a return to movie theater motivation for moviegoers. Honestly, I’m looking much more forward to Wonder Woman 1984 (FIRST LOOK). That is scheduled about two months from this post.
Directed, written and produced by Christopher Nolan, so we should have some idea what kind of film to expect (action, entertainment, excitement). Dig the playful title which is the the word “ten” forward and reverse.
Are you looking forward to watching Tenet? Or is there another movie coming out later this year (hopefully not delayed) that you’re looking forward to seeing in the theater? Let us know in the comments.
Tenet is scheduled to open — if there is no announced delay — wide in theaters — if theaters are reopened on July 17, 2020.
