Warner Bros. had to postpone Christopher Nolan’s highly-anticipated action thriller movie, Tenet, after COVID-19 cases increased across the country.
Two weeks ago, Warner Bros. decided to move the upcoming movie to July 31. But, today, the studio changed the release date again and moved it to August 12.
In an official statement by Warner Bros. Studios, they announced that they were delayed again because of their concerns about public health, and the theaters are not currently healthy for watching movies.
Here’s the statement:
“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.
The statement continued:
“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.”
On the other hand, Christopher Nolan spoke in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly and tried to explain the story of Tenet.
“This film is not a time-travel film. It deals with time and the different ways in which time can function. Not to get into a physics lesson, but inversion is this idea of the material that has had its entropy inverted, so it’s running backward through time, relative to us.”
