NEW YORK: Christopher Nolan’s hotly-awaited, super-secret sci fi epic “Tenet” will finally release internationally on Aug. 26 before hitting a limited number of US screens in September, Warner Bros said Monday.
It is the fourth time the studio has announced a release date for the blockbuster because of the coronavirus pandemic, which has shut movie theaters around the world.
“Tenet” was originally due to hit screens on July 17, then July 31, before Warner Bros announced last week that it was delaying its third date of Aug. 12.
The studio said in a statement that the movie will open in over 70 countries including Egypt, most of Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan and South Korea, on Aug. 26.
“Tenet” will show in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Lebanon, and more on Aug. 27.
The film will then open in the US on Sept. 3 for the Labor Day holiday weekend, traditionally an important time for the cinema business.
