Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi Tenet delayed indefinitely owing to the coronavirus outbreak

Warner Bros. revealed that the release of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi flick Tenet now stands indefinitely delayed. This is quite a blow to the theatre chains who were expecting to bounce back to business with the big-ticket film. The film which was to hit the theatres on August 12th has no definitive release date as of now. Walt Disney's Mulan is still on the calendar for an August release on Aug 21st.
"We will share a new 2020 release date imminently for Tenet, Christopher Nolan's wholly original and mind-blowing feature," said Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich.
This is the third time delay that the film's release has suffered owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was to hit the theatres first on July 17th. The date was then shifted to July 31st, and later to Aug 12th.
The Warner Bros. Chairman stated that they will issue a new release date 'imminently.' "Our goals throughout this process have been to ensure the highest odds of success for our films while also being ready to support our theatre partners with new content as soon as they could safely reopen," the Warner Bros chairman added. This indicates that Tenet will not have a traditional global day-and-date release. The film's release might depend on each nation's coronavirus situation.
The movie features John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Caine, Clemence Poesy, Dimple Kapadia, and Himesh Patel. Tenet follows the tale of an operative who works for a special branch by the name of 'Tenet,' and his journey to prevent World War 3.
