Principle: Christopher Nolan would have pushed to the July release date, Studio wanted to postpone


Christopher Nolan is determined to preserve the theatrical experience, whether the global pandemic is cursed. According to a new report, Nolan was adamant about his spy thriller Tenet, which opened in cinemas in July while distributor Warner Bros. wanted to postpone his exit.
Tenet’s release was recently delayed two weeks from July 17 to July 31, as Warners reissued the creation of Nolan on July 17 instead of honoring its 10th anniversary, according to the New York Times:

“In recent weeks, Warner, concerned about his investment in Tenet, has leaned in favor of the postponement, while Mr. Nolan, a staunch defender of preserving the cinematic experience, has been more eager to move forward . The discussions were a difficult time for Warner. : Mr. Nolan is a proven fund maker, and the studio wants to keep him happy. ”

As it stands, Disney’s Mulan – not Tenet – will be the first major Hollywood release to hit theaters this summer… that’s, of course, unless Disney decides to postpone the film’s release date. current July 24 opening. With the gradual reopening of cinemas in the United States – the country’s largest markets, New York and Los Angeles, aim to reopen theaters on July 10 – Hollywood can expect a drop income from new releases due to social distancing requirements.

The theaters will initially open at a limited capacity (25% of attendance) with customers six feet apart, a progressive reopening seeing the seat capacity increase in stages depending on whether or not there is an increase in the new COVID-19 cases.

Certain regions and theater chains, namely Cinemark, will not require customers to wear masks. The new coronavirus pandemic is not over, and many industries, including Hollywood, fear that a too rapid reopening will accelerate the spread of the deadly disease.

Nolan made no secret of his plea for the theatrical experience, in particular IMAX and 70mm, the two formats in which Tenet will be presented. In a March editorial, Nolan wrote, “Cinemas are a vital part of American social life. They will need our help. ”

Each film delayed due to coronavirus (so far)

Director of the Dark Knight trilogy hailed cinemas as “a vital part of social life, providing jobs for many and entertainment for all.” These are places of joyful mixing where workers serve stories and treats to the crowds who come to enjoy an evening with friends “and family. As a filmmaker, my work can never be complete without these workers and the public they welcome. ”
