“Tenet” has found a new release date — it’s just unclear where it’ll find a screen.
Warner Bros. announced Monday that “Tenet” will be released overseas on Aug. 26. But the film will be released in the U.S. on Sept. 2 for Labor Day weekend, according to Variety.
The film will be released in select U.S. cities. However, the list of cities was not released.
“Tenet” was originally scheduled to open in July, marketed as the first film to be released during the pandemic and one to bring people back to the theaters. However, the film has been delayed every few weeks.
Last week, “Tenet” was removed from its schedule. As I wrote for Deseret.com, there was some suggestion that “Tenet” would open wherever it can, including drive-in theaters.
Warner Bros. hopes “Tenet” would have “a long theatrical tail,” according to Deadline.
“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,” Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, said in a statement last week, per CNN. “Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to proliferate, causing us to reevaluate our release dates.”
