Even if Tenet was pirated I’m sure most people would still go see it once it’s out in their are, I’m confident in saying that

The key issue with the August international date is that it presumes a nationwide Tenet release by September via Stankey, and I just don't see the U.S. ready for that in 6-7 weeks. WB's implication of a staggered release date makes much more sense, but AT&T are (obviously) opposed.

who fucking knows what's going to happen when WB and AT&T are contradicting one another a day apart

I would imagine the WB side is more open to a wider international/domestic gap, piracy be damned. Literally what exhibitors have been calling for here...
I guess its doing the math and figuring out the best outcome:
- Releasing in Aug/Sept knowing there are a significant number of US states not ready by then and piracy

- Releasing with a wider international/domestic gap, subject to increased piracy, more theatres are bankrupt, sharing the screen numbers with other titles and perhaps loss of interest if Tenet receives bad reviews or the "twists are spoiled".
(assuming states aren't forced to close again if there's an abundance of resurgent cases)

Point in case

There’s NO WAY that any given theater, especially in the US, can operate for more than a few days or weeks without cases being traced back to their locations. This is gonna be a disaster.

IMO, the number of reported COVID cases in China has always been quite a underestimate. This can due to undertesting or whatever reason...

Countries in the EU and some East Asian countries like Singapore and South Korea have reopened their movie theatres without having to shut down after a week.

We've been getting bits and pieces of information from Europe (Spain yesterday) this week to safely assume that WB will indeed release TENET internationally on August 26/27th

This would be the best case scenario
