Robert Pattinson Tenet still in editing and Indiewire hopes for Cannes Premiere

UPDATED: 27 March 2020

Scott Mendelsohn from Forbes had this to say on why Tenet is still slated for July 2020 release:

Most of the big June, July and August releases have yet to move, partially out of hopes that they won’t have to.

We got word yesterday that Warner Bros. was delaying nearly its entire summer movie slate. …

Oddly enough, Chris Nolan’s $200 million sci-fi actioner Tenet, starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson, has thus far maintained its intended July 17 opening weekend. It is one of a handful of potentially “big” movies that has yet to vacate its planned theatrical release date, arguably because it’s hoping that it won’t have to.

UPDATED: 25 March 2020

Warner Bros is pushing ahead with 17 July 2020 release of Tenet according to Deadline:

Warner Bros is pushing its forthcoming summer theatrical releases until the coronavirus crisis calms down and exhibition makes a full-steam comeback.

Meanwhile, Christopher Nolan’s Tenet will stay firm on July 17 in anticipation the global theatrical marketplace will be well by then.

With COVID-19 affecting most if not all of the film industry, we are all patiently waiting to see if Tenet will still be released on 17 July 2020. Scott Wesley Ross who is the assistant editor posted on the weekend that the film bins were in quarantine (See IG below). Meanwhile, IndieWire is ever hopeful that Tenet will be the first Nolan film to premiere at Cannes. As we know, Rob is pretty good at convincing Thierry (and hopefully Nolan) what a good idea his movies can be at the festival – he is after all the #KingofCannes. Here’s what IndieWire had to say:

Christopher Nolan is no stranger to Cannes buzz. The director’s blockbusters often open in theaters in July, so there’s always talk he might premiere a new effort at the Cannes Film Festival. Nolan has never debuted a directorial effort in Cannes, but would “Tenet” have been the first one? It still could be if Cannes’ plan to delay the 2020 festival to late June holds, as Warner Bros. is opening “Tenet” in July. Shortening the gap between a potential Cannes world premiere and the film’s theatrical opening could increase its chances of world premiering at the festival, but Nolan remains unpredictable when it comes to festivals.

A Cannes debut would’ve been fitting for “Tenet,” as it’s the most international film of Nolan’s career: The director filmed the espionage epic in seven countries. Warner Bros. had overwhelming success bringing “Mad Max: Fury Road” to Cannes in 2015 (many thought it would’ve won the Palme d’Or had it debuted in competition) and “Tenet” could’ve followed suit. And maybe it still will.”

    Fortunately, we Rob fans have been trained to be exceptionally patient over the years, particularly those of us here in Oz. Fingers crossed Cannes might be possible in June/July. Guess only time will tell.
