Two weeks in the past, Warner Bros. determined to push Christopher Nolan’s Tenet again from July 17th to July 31st. What precisely they anticipated to alter considerably on the subject of the coronavirus stays unclear, however Variety stories that the studio has pushed Tenet again by one other two weeks. The movie is now slated to open on Wednesday, August 12th. Warner Bros. additionally plans to depart the movie in theaters for an extended timeframe since they imagine that attendance will likely be spaced out.
“Warner Bros. is dedicated to bringing ‘Tenet’ to audiences in theaters, on the large display screen, when exhibitors are prepared and public well being officers say it’s time,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson stated in a press release. “On this second what we must be is versatile, and we aren’t treating this as a conventional film launch. We’re selecting to open the film mid-week to permit audiences to find the movie in their very own time, and we plan to play longer, over an prolonged play interval far past the norm, to develop a really totally different but profitable launch technique.”
For starters, exhibitors are prepared as a result of they haven’t any selection however to be prepared. They’ve reached the purpose the place they both reopen or exit of enterprise solely, so letting them make the decision here’s a little disingenuous. As for “public well being officers”, that’s a little bit of a nebulous assertion because you don’t actually need to level to any actual official. It’s not like saying the Surgeon Basic or the Division of Human Well being and Providers. It’s apparently simply “well being officers” and we’ll depart it at that.
These main firms don’t need to admit the reality, which is that we aren’t prepared for reopening. Two weeks in the past, they didn’t assume that there can be enormous surges of circumstances in Florida, Arizona, Texas, and California, however right here we’re. However what’s the plan right here? Possibly in the event that they time Tenet good they’ll hit a lower-than-average caseload which they will then spike once more as a result of persons are congregating in theaters? Transfer the film to 2021, Warner Bros. It’s going to maintain.
