    Like someone else, I live in a small town, and would see this on a matinee showing, so I'm comfortable with being able to see this safely. Nolan's films deserve a big screen.

    ^^^ Just read it landed on the 10th anniversary of Inception so they will be screening that with a sneak peak attatched to it. Kind of weird if you ask me.

    Looking forward to this film although I'm pretty sure I won't go see it in a theater. Not worth the extra risk to me. I loved "Dunkirk" from a technical standpoint but thought the story lacked a soul. Then again, the Dark Knight films had plenty of soul to go around.

    Seems pointless to keep doing it in small increments (what’s two weeks gonna do?) but Tenet now pushed back to Aug 12.

    Pretty sure August 12 isn't going to be much if any better than now. They should push it to next year.

    On the other side of that he can be heavy handed with saccharine sentiment and schlock at the sacrifice of plot. I can't forgive for that "love is the only thing that transcends space and time" BS. I just can't.

    Guess it's the best thing they can do in terms of "marketing" and getting people's attention back up. Seems like 007 is in hibernation at this point, so they keep pushing Tenet with as little as they have.

    They must've agreed. Tenet has now been officially delayed indefinitely.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA THIS IS FINE.

    I really want to be able to get back to the cinema, but with the way the virus is going i'm worried they'll even BE cinemas at this rate.

    Not too afraid of going to the movies at this point as they have good concepts in place, at least here, but what's there to see if every movie gets delayed for months to come? Really sucks as I miss going to the cinema more than going to shows at the moment and I really do hope that some of my most favorite places will survive this madness.

    read online that Nolan has a vested 20% of box office interest in getting this thing into theaters instead of streaming.

    Like Black Widow and No Time to Die, I do hope that I can see Tenet in a theatre sometime in the next 6-9 months. I'd feel safer sitting in a theatre with a mask on than inside a restaurant without a mask. I think that theaters (at least the big ones) will survive, it's the (smaller) music venues we should be worried about. It'll be a lot longer before concerts are considered "safe" enough to make a return. Fingers crossed on that vaccine...

    I'd pay $20 to watch it in 4K UHD at home if they offered. Got my new TV, be happy with that.

    I understand where Nolan is coming from here, but he's being unrealistic. He wants the reality of this to give way to his passion project, and the virus doesn't give a shit.

    He should release it streaming, and then, when everything is sane again, do a theatrical IMAX run. If the movie is good, and people long for that theatrical experience, it'll be a good way to illustrate the necessity of the theater experience. It might be seen as the movie we "go back into theaters for" again, and if it feels like something that was intended to really shine in theaters, that should nag at us until we get to experience it.

    But at least let us just watch it at this point, and no, I'm not going to a theater anytime soon.

    They've been showing a couple of IMAX runs of Inception and Dunkirk in Indy recently. I can't remember the capacity, but it was pretty small.

    seriously, you really hit the bullseye here. everyone who's like "I WANT TO SEE THIS IN THE THEATER" would still watch it streaming, and then flock to the theater as soon as it's safe to reopen.

    I don't see why it can't just come out next year if he wants it in theaters.

    Nolan is my favorite director and it's been incredibly heart breaking to see him seemingly not give a flying fuck about this virus and instead only seems to care about "BUT YOU GOTTA SEE IT ON THE IMAAAAAAAX SCREEEEEEEEN". Fuck off man and just release the shit on VOD like this Friday unexpectedly and you'll get aaaaaall that cash you seemingly have such a hard on for, as if you aren't gonna be living off of Batman royalties for the rest of your life. SEVERELY disappointed in him.

    Tenet to open overseas on Aug 26, followed a week later in 'select' U.S. cities.

    Dependent upon that theater/city/state being open and allowing patrons, etc etc etc.

    Also interestingly, Canada is in the list of 'overseas' countries so we get it in August. I'm definitely on the fence about going, but as many have already stated...a Nolan film is the ONE that makes the decision the hardest. With a 16 month old though, I'm probably gonna have to wait fml.

    I wonder if any of these films that are getting delayed will get a re-release down the road if they do well with what they're given here. Sucks that this especially is being thrown around like a rag doll.

    So I read a synopsis of this and it's basically exactly what I expected based on the one trailer I've seen. Am I a staggering genius or what?

    As my favorite cinema here has always been offering single seats I gave in and bought a ticket for August 28th. Very excited for it as cinemas are the next big thing for me after concerts, and I miss both dearly.
