COVID-19 isn’t stopping for anyone, including the movie theater industry. Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” is one of many movies that has suffered major delays. Now, Warner Bros. has moved it back “indefinitely.”
According to Variety, Warner Bros removed “Tenet” from its release window. The movie was originally slated for July 17th, but amidst uncertainty, the studio devised a new plan for the movie. Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich explained the plan:
“We are not treating Tenet like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that.”
The real question this now poses is what will the rest of the industry do? Will we see more unique releases? The New Mutants has an upcoming panel at Comic-Con at Home, could this mean a potential VOD release? I think it’d be a great idea, considering some theaters are being forced to shut down again. The industry is going to shift and, unfortunately, it will most likely never be the same.
Will you be watching “Tenet” in any way it comes out? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments!
