UPDATE (June 26, 2020): Warner Bros. has confirmed that the upcoming release of Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet has been pushed back again, due to a recent upsurge in cases of COVID-19. The new release date will be August 12. In a statement, Warner Bros. said that the film will not be out until “exhibitors are ready and public health officials say it’s time.”

Cinemas around the world have been hesitantly reopening after their enforced lockdowns: earlier this week, the AMC Cinemas group announced that it would be reopening 450 venues, albeit with strict social distancing protocols.


ORIGINAL STORY (June 13, 2020): Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming title TENET has now been delayed, pushing back Warner Bros.‘ overall release schedule which also resulted in the postponement of Wonder Woman 1984

The announcement to delay Nolan’s highly-anticipated film came on Friday when Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich revealed that the release date will now be moved two weeks back from July 17 to 31, although the director’s previous blockbuster Inception will be making a return to theaters on July 17 to celebrate its 10th anniversary.  “We’re especially thrilled, in this complex and rapidly changing environment, to be bringing Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, a global tentpole of jaw-dropping size, scope and scale, to theaters around the world on July 31,” Emmerich said. “It’s been longer than any of us could’ve imagined since we’ve seen a movie on the big screen, and to acknowledge Chris’ fans as we count down to Tenet‘s opening day, we are also excited to offer his masterpiece Inception in theaters for its 10th anniversary on July 17.”

Shortly after Emmerich’s announcement was made, Warner Bros. also pushed back the launch of Wonder Woman 1984, moving it from August 14 to October 2, unfortunately losing its summer release. It’s also not the first time the superhero film has been delayed: it was originally intended to be released back in 2019 after wrapping production in 2018, but was pushed back to June 2020, and subsequently once again to August due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and cinema closures.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Adam F. Goldberg has revealed his pitch and concept art for The Goonies 2.
