Christopher Nolan’s ambitious project Tenet starring Robert Pattinson seems to have faced the maximum effects of the pandemic. The film that has been pushed twice already, may now be pushed for the third time and might not make it to its planned August release. Below are all the details as we hear hearts breaking for the umpteenth time amid this pandemic.
For the unversed, Tenet which was in making for a long time was set for a July 17, 2020, release. With the pandemic hitting shores across, it was pushed to July 31. Later as COVID-19 scare kept spreading, the makers announced August 12 as the D-day. But seems like there might be one more delay in the store.
According to reports in Deadline, America is witnessing a rise in the number of COVID-19 positive patients. This has affected the opening date for the theatres. With no sight of pandemic subsiding, the release of Tenet is mostly impossible. And it is also one of the biggest releases post the pandemic.
According to Deadline, Box Office analyst Eric Handler said that it may not be until fall when cinema halls will reopen. He said, “The near-term outlook for exhibition-related stocks remains extremely clouded. It would be surprising to see theatres able to re-open nationwide before September, at the earliest.”
Meanwhile, not just Tenet, but a long list of movies await pandemic to take a back seat. Some big ones include Mulan, Wonder Woman 1984, Black Widow and No Time To Die.
