Christopher Nolan's Tenet release date delayed again

Tenet, the new movie from Christopher Nolan, has been delayed by a further two weeks. 

Nolan's new movie was due to be one of the first to be released into cinemas after they re-open and had been scheduled to arrive on July 31st. 

Now, however, it will arrive two weeks later on August 12th. 

Speaking about the decision, a Warner Brothers spokesperson said in a statement: "Warner Bros. is committed to bringing Tenet to audiences in theatres, on the big screen, when exhibitors are ready and public health officials say it’s time. In this moment what we need to be is flexible, and we are not treating this as a traditional movie release."

They continued: "We are choosing to open the movie mid-week to allow audiences to discover the film in their own time, and we plan to play longer, over an extended play period far beyond the norm, to develop a very different yet successful release strategy."

Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh, with Nolan directing and supplying the script. 

Plot details are scarce for the film, but it is known to be an international espionage thriller where Washington's character, who is simply known as The Protagonist, is tasked with stopping World War III. He has only one word to help him, Tenet. 

The movie is Nolan's follow-up to Dunkirk, which grossed over $520 million at the box office and took home three Oscars.
