      Tenet, originally set to release on July 17, was pushed back to July 31 due to the ongoing pandemic. While the studio hoped theatres will open soon, big cities like New York and Los Angeles still had theatres closed which caused the makers to push back the film once again to August 12. However, the rising cases have made it harder for businesses to open around the world.

      Toby Emmerich told Variety that the studio is not considering a global release and could release the film in prominent markets like Asia as and when the theatres begin to reopen. The studio has also made it clear that Tenet will not get a digital release. Universal, Disney as well as Warner Bros. have moved some films to OTT releases, however, according to The Verge, Tenet being a Christopher Nolan film which perform exceedingly well at the box office, will produce a high source of revenue for the studio.

We're grateful for the support we've received from exhibitors and remain steadfast in our commitment to the theatrical experience around the world. Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to proliferate, causing us to reevaluate our release dates."
