The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated film Tenet has been pushed once again due to COVID-19 concerns. The news arrives soon after the release date was pushed to the end of July. Tenet‘s new release date is now moving to August 12.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros. made a statement, saying:
Warner Bros. is committed to bringing Tenet to audiences in theaters, on the big screen, when exhibitors are ready and public health officials say it’s time. In this moment what we need to be is flexible, and we are not treating this as a traditional movie release.
Though Nolan is keeping plot details tightly under wraps, we do know that Tenet will focus on a mission that involves a time-travel and will be an action-packed, sci-fi thriller. The film stars John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman), Robert Pattinson (The Lighthouse), and Elizabeth Debicki (Widows, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2). It is written and directed by Christopher Nolan.
