Earlier this afternoon Warner Bros. and Epic Games announced that a brand new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet would debut inside of the massively popular Battle Royale game Fortnite. Shortly after debuting in game (along with an introduction from star John David Washington) the trailer appeared on the official YouTube page for all to enjoy.
You may have noticed a number of articles over the last few days about the reopening of movie theaters in the United States and across the world. You may have also noticed that with each article there’s a theme; movie theaters are banking on Christopher Nolan’s Tenet being released in July. Over the last few months COVID-19 has wreaked havoc across the world; destroying lives, families, and businesses. Few businesses have been impacted as much the film industry — movie theaters in particular. The largest theater chain in the world, AMC Theatres, is on the brink of bankruptcy. Cinemark states they can make it to the end of 2020 but no further. So what do Christopher Nolan and Tenet have to do with any of this? It appears movie theaters are hoping to reopen as early as July, and Tenet is the first big release still scheduled for this summer. While virtually every major summer release has moved to fall or even 2021, Tenet has held firm on July 17 — just 3 months from today.
Tenet hits theaters and IMAX on July 17, 2020.
