Warner Bros. has announced that they will still release Christopher Nolan’s Tenet in theaters this year.
Leading the way, Warner Bros. will release the film internationally beginning on August 26, 2020. The film will be available in 70 countries overseas including Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Australia and France.
Warner Bros. is also hoping to get the green light to screen the film in China. The country has allowed theaters to reopen, but has stated that theaters would not be able to play movies longer than two hours. However, theaters have recently shown older films like Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Inception that have long run times. With these recent developments, Warner Bros. is hopeful that the film will be shown in the world’s second largest movie market.
Following behind the internationally release, Warner Bros. will release the John David Washington led film during Labor Day Weekend. At this time, it’s unclear what cities will be able to screen the film.
The release schedule is a major shift from last week’s decision to remove the film from the release calendar entirely.
