In another detour for Tenet, Warner Brothers has announced that the tentpole film has delayed its release indefinitely as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The film was originally scheduled to open in mid-July before shifting to late July, and most recently early August. In a statement, Warner Brothers reiterated their commitment to releasing the film theatrically, stating

Our goals throughout this process have been to ensure the highest odds of success for our films while also being ready to support our theater partners with new content as soon as they could safely reopen. 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.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, some possibilities include allowing Tenet to premiere internationally first as many states in the US continue to be in lockdown, or allowing the film to screen in only those states that have reopened their theaters. Nolan is committed to providing a theatrical experience, so it is very unlikely the film would launch on demand as other releases have done. For more of our coverage of Tenet, click here.
