In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, several big-budget movies initially slated for release this year have been postponed. However, Christopher Nolan is still planning on releasing Tenet on July 17. With the theaters across the world slowly opening, expect the entertainment industry to get back on track. However, the first few months would be challenging. This is exactly why Disney will closely observe how Tenet performs on its opening weekend. This will help “The Mouse” decide if it should release Mulan a week after Tenet arrives in Theaters.
Christopher Nolan wants his Movie to bring People back into Theaters!
Christopher Nolan’s dedication towards his work is surely commendable. With films like Inception, The Dark Night, and Interstellar under his belt, it isn’t hard to figure out why is among the best directors of all time. Even Warner Bros., responsible for distributing Nolan’s movies, has full confidence in him.
Now that the lockdown is slowly ending across the world, it’s only a matter of time before cinemas reopen. While a number of studios are preferring to stay on the safe side and release their movies by the fall at the earliest, Nolan is putting in extra time to ensure that Tenet is ready for release by July. In short, both Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan are aiming for Tenet to bring the audience back into Movie Theaters.
Disney will Release Mulan in July only if Tenet Performs Well!
CEO of Disney, Bob Chapek revealed earlier this week during the company’s Q2 earnings call if the live-action Mulan film will be releasing on July 24. He said,
We’re going to get a pretty good idea of that, because there’s a competitive movie (Tenet) that opens one week before our film.
While we are surprised that Disney is alright with taking Warner Bros.’s help, it is what it is.
If Tenet doesn’t get postponed within the coming week, it’s fair to say that the entire Hollywood would be keeping an eye on how the Sci-Fi Action flick performs. Moreover, Tenet’s box office figures would help distributors in deciding when they should release their movies.
