Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan are reportedly confident that Tenet will make its July 17 release date.
After the most recent trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet sent fans into a frenzy, many still wonder whether the film will arrive on time or if it’ll be delayed like so many other big-budget studio movies like Black Widow, No Time To Die and Wonder Woman 1984. During Cinemark’s Q1 call, CEO Mark Zoradi explained that the company has spoken with Warner Bros., confirming that both the studio and the director are confident about Tenet‘s debut.
“We’ve been in close contact with Warner Bros. and they remain optimistic and positive as well as Christopher Nolan about the July 17 opening. Of course, it depends on the continued positive movement due to the decline of COVID-19 and government restrictions being reduced.”
Zoradi went on to address concerns regarding the coronavirus, and mentioned that Cinemark screenings will operate with a reduced audience of 50%, pointing out “we can operate profitability with all the (safety) techniques we put in place”. The CEO also addressed the possibility of Tenet‘s delay, noting that if a decision is made it’ll be announced sooner rather than later. Zoradi suggested the studio would announce the delay this month if the situation changes.
“…in the not distant future. I can’t speak for them, but it will be before June,”

Not time travel. Inversion.”
