Warner Bros. has announced that "Tenet", the upcoming Christopher Nolan film, has had its release delayed yet again. The film will now premiere on August 12, instead of July 31. The new date is in response to the recent surge of CVOID-19 cases.
"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. We are choosing to open the movie mid-week to allow audiences to discover the film in their own time, and we plan to play longer, over an extended play period far beyond the norm, to develop a very different yet successful release strategy," a studios spokesperson said in a statement.
"Tenet" stars John David Washington in the lead role with Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine.
This will be the second time that the film's release has been pushed back - it was originally slated for a July 17 debut.
