Christopher Nolan’s Tenet has been delayed, as it has been completely removed from Warner Bros’ release calendar, as reported by Variety.
The film was originally slated for release on July 17th, but was pushed back by the studio twice with it most recently being scheduled to come out August 12th. But with the coroanvirus pandemic still taking a huge toll on the entertainment industry, Warner Bros. doesn’t seem to want to stick to a summer release anymore.
Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. chairman, has hinted that they studio may not do a usual simultaneous, global release. Instead, they may release the film in individual markets as they are allowed to with the health crisis. In his statement, Emmerich says:
“We will share a new 2020 release date imminently for Tenet, Christopher Nolan’s wholly original and mind-blowing feature. We are not treating Tenet like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that.”
With that statement, it seems like Warner Bros. is still committed to releasing Tenet this year.
They also delayed another movie into next year. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It has been pushed back from September 11th, 2020 to June 4th, 2021.
It looks like the live-action remake of Disney’s Mulan will be the only summer film to come out this year, but with this delay, we wouldn’t be surprised at all if that film gets a similar treatment.
