‘Tenet’ Will Be Released in Select U.S. Theaters on September 3; Earlier Opening Planned Internationally


After several days of speculation after yet another release date postponement, Warner Brothers has unveiled their latest plan for the release of the film Tenet. The Christopher Nolan film will hit select U.S. theaters on September 3 (Labor Day weekend). In an effort to bolster the smaller-than-expected release stateside, the film will be released earlier between August 26-28 in international territories, depending on each country’s guidelines (with some countries seeing the film in late September). The international locations specifically mentioned in a statement by Warner Brothers include Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Spain, and the U.K.

Tenet has had a rocky road to release. Originally due to be a summer blockbuster, the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc with those plans repeatedly. Part of the sticking point is director Nolan’s passion for the film to open theatrically and not on-demand as some other films have chosen to do. Warner Brothers has not yet announced which U.S. cities are likely to see Tenet first, but Variety has the full list of international release dates as of now.
