Tenet just got the worst news imaginable

Warner Bros Pictures is expected to announce a new plan for the movie in the coming days, and it's reported that Tenet could open to overseas markets first, and then in USA cities where theaters can safely open.

"Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to proliferate, causing us to reevaluate our release dates", studio chairman Toby Emmerlich said in a statement sent to AFP.

Tenet, which had been set to be the first big movie released in reopened theaters, has yet again been delayed.

The movie was expected to hit Irish cinemas on 17 July initially, though it had recently been pushed back by number of weeks due to Covid-19.

Tenet features the likes of Robert Pattinson, Clémence Poésy, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.

The process of reopening movie theaters is a slow one at best, and one that has been interrupted by a resurgence of virus cases in several USA states and elsewhere in the world.

The movie theater service has actually been ravaged by the coronavirus shutdowns, laying off 10s of countless staff members and loaning funds to survive.

He said that the plan is to release Tenet on an unspecified date in 2020, but added: "We are not treating [the film] like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that".

Theater chains in the US previously announced plans to widely reopen in the summer in time for Tenet and Disney's Mulan, which as of now is scheduled to open on August 21.

This is just the cherry on top of Tenet's theatrical woes, as Warner Bros. ponders a new 2020 domestic release date. Warner Bros. also shifted the horror sequel "The Conjuring 3" from September 11 to June 4, 2021.

"Tenet", a thriller about an agency trying to ward off World War III, combines the big-budget spectacle and inventive storytelling that have made Nolan one of Hollywood's most sought-after directors. He also directed the three films in the so-called Dark Knight trilogy - Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

Tenet is facing yet another roadblock to its theatrical release.

Warner Bros intend for Tenet to spend a good while showing in cinemas, as Nolan is a big supporter of the big screen.
