The most eagerly awaited film of the year, Christopher Nolan’s "Tenet" dropped its second trailer today, but it failed to list an opening date at the end, reading “coming to theaters”.
Exhibitors, rival studios and the town have been paralyzed all week wondering whether Warner Bros.’ Tenet will remain on its July 17 release date and bring the world’s movie theaters back from this coronavirus deep-freeze they’ve been suffering since mid-March.
The release date suspense has deepened further as the latest trailer didn't show any release date and also we checked out different social media accounts - twiiter and facebook.
We noticed that the cover photo of TENET's official facebook page was changed at the time the trailer was released and showing "Coming to Theaters", earlier it was showing "7.17.20".
But after 6hrs, It has again changed to "7.17.20" from "Coming to Theaters". So we don't know what exactly playing in the mind of Christopher Nolan but certainly the mystery and suspense behind the release date is very similar to the genre of his movies.
As of this minute, Warner Bros. hasn’t officially changed Tenet‘s July 17 release date, but don’t be surprised if they move it by a week or two in the near future. Wonder Woman 1984 which also belongs to WB studios has not shown any change to its planned release date which is August 14, but if any change happens in the release of TENET than it is very likely that Wonder Woman will move a month or two in the future.
Warner Bros. has decided to wait until early June to decide whether to push Tenet to the August 14 date held by Wonder Woman 1984.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros needs at least 80% of the world’s theaters to be open, including New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco (which rep 25% of a pic’s opening weekend), in order to keep Tenet on its original release date. That includes pivotal theaters in three areas — Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York — as part of the required 3,500 reopened theaters across the U.S. and another 30,000-plus screens worldwide.
Essentially, July 17 is in doubt because New York and Los Angeles theaters aren’t open yet — and this is Hollywood’s worst nightmare not knowing.
Tenet is an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage. Nolan wrote and directed the film, which was shot across seven countries. The plot is complex, and apparently involves the ability to bend time. But so far, everyone involved insists time traveling is not part of its story.
The international cast is led by John David Washington and includes Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, with Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.
