According to a studio insider, if the release date of the much anticipated Tenet is pushed, then there will be no cinematic movie release until 2020’s Christmas. Recently a Hollywood studio insider said this all, and he believes that if the Tenant movie release is pushed back, then it will mean that production companies won’t be able to release their other movies as well in the cinemas.
When we look at how most production companies are pushing back their movies’ release since March, it helps us understand why the studio insider said so.
From the March month, we see the drastic growth of the ongoing pandemic, and it has forced people to stay home. Most importantly, the government has restricted any kind of gatherings, including theaters, events, etc.
The first movie that pushed its release date due to the outbreak is No Time to Die, which is one of the James Bond titles starring Daniel Craig. Since then, almost every major title has been delayed due to social distancing.
Many production companies decided to release their films directly on VOD (video on demand). However, up till now, the only movie that hasn’t been delayed is Tenet, and it is presently self-assured to be the biggest movie after the lockdown.
Tenet is planned to roll out in July; roughly the occasion cinemas are expecting, it would be okay to restart. The production company provides no authentication for that movie will premiere as predicted. Also, keep mind that in case theaters in popular market places such as Los Angeles and New York remain closed until July, which is very likely to happen, so Tenet might get pushed back. According to the present situation, it is hard to believe that the rapidly spreading pandemic will magically end in July.
This means Warner Bros. might be forced to push back Tenet eventually. This would be very big disappointing news for the fans as well as film industries.
According to The Washington Post, a studio supervisor anonymously talked about the matter that tells whether Nolan’s anticipated title will delay or not. In the discussion, they spoke of the consequences if there were no film releases until July.
The anonymous studio executive said that If the film does not release or does not get successful, then every other film goes home. There are no new films until Christmas.
Now it is pretty interesting how the executive confidently said about Tenet’s probable profitable performance. Everyone knows that even if the government allows people to watch the movie in theaters onwards July and despite the pandemic, very few people will visit the cinema. This means fewer sales of movie tickets and snacks. This will fail for the company to earn sufficient revenue, and may not even be enough to match their spending.
In the world without the ongoing pandemic, Nolan was one of the most popular and awarded directors at the box office. His movies are used to hit theaters and box office. Christopher Nolan has a huge name in filming the mind-bending film. It is the only reason why Tenet is suited best for premier release after the lockdown.
