While Tenet seemed to be holding firm to its August 12th release date, news broke on July 20th that Warner Bros. had indefinitely delayed the film. Yesterday (July 27th), the studio rescheduled – but the film will be releasing earlier internationally than in the US.
Tenet will be released on August 26th in 70 international territories, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Japan and Russia. There isn’t yet a release date set for China.
The US will have to wait until September 3rd to see director Christopher Nolan’s next epic. This is due to the coronavirus pandemic – as cases in the US continue to rise, it seems unlikely that theaters will be able to safely reopen this summer. It isn’t yet known which parts of the US Tenet will be released in, either.
Nolan, a staunch supporter of the theatrical experience, was said to be keen for Tenet to be the film that welcomed audiences back into theaters. The staggered release date, however, means that some of the film’s allure might be diminished by the time US audiences finally get to watch it – the sci-fi thriller has been shrouded in secrecy, so if spoilers leak from overseas, it could negatively affect the film’s appeal.
