Tenet opening overseas one week ahead of US release
Just over a week after the studio revealed Christopher Nolan’s highly-anticipated Tenet wouldn’t be getting a traditional theatrical release due to the pandemic, Warner Bros. has announced the blockbuster will open overseas in late August one week ahead of a United States release, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The highly-anticipated mystery project will first open in 70 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Spain and the U.K. on August 26, with some territories including China still yet to receive a release date, while select US cities will see the film open on September 3 ahead of the Labor Day weekend.
Tenet will be an international espionage thriller filmed across seven countries. John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) stars, with a supporting cast that includes Robert Pattinson (Good Time), Elizabeth Debicki (Widows), Dimple Kapadia (Fugly), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Rises) and Kenneth Branagh (Dunkirk).
The director first made an impact in 2001 with his indie film Memento. His next film, Insomnia, was also a modest hit. but it wasn’t until Batman Begins hit theaters in 2005 that Nolan became a box office force in his own right. The Prestige was Nolan’s last movie to gross under $200 million worldwide. His other films include The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Interstellar, and Dunkirk.
