Robert Pattinson considered possible contender for Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Tenet

Although it’s too early to tell considering Tenet is yet to be released, IndieWire has included Rob as a contender in the Oscar race for “Best Supporting Actor”.

Meanwhile, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that Warner Bros will consider launching Tenet in overseas markets before it releases it in the US:

Warner Bros.’ Tenet, directed by Christopher Nolan, is the first movie to announce it will pursue this radical departure from tradition. On July 20, the pic’s Aug. 12 release was delayed because of a surge in COVID-19 cases in such states as California, Florida and Texas (and because movie theaters cannot yet open in New York City). But the more significant announcement was Warners saying it will ignore the modern-day distribution playbook for tentpoles and launch Tenet on a staggered basis.

Studio insiders said the espionage epic will go out first overseas, where cinemas have reopened in many European and Asian countries, and have begun to reopen in China.

Warners isn’t yet giving exact dates, but sources elsewhere say the studio hopes to begin opening Tenet in international markets in late August before it arrives in the U.S. in the first part of September, even if only in select cities. They stress the situation is fluid, however.

A staggered rollout for a tentpole such as Tenet cannot be compared to a platform release for an independent film, which generally debuts first in New York City and Los Angeles. Nor will is it equivalent to an old-school roadshow release, which saw a movie play for months and months. Piracy and shortened home entertainment windows have altered the landscape. But after months of no revenue, studios and theater owners are willing to take a chance.

“Look, this is a big risk for Warners because they spent $200 million to make this film. There are a lot of unknowns but the industry can’t stand still forever,” says Eric Handler of MKM Partners. “I do think there is pent-up demand. Personally, I think moviegoing will beget moviegoing when people see that it is safe and not causing an uptick in cases. You can eat inside a restaurant in many states. Given the sanitary plans, it could be safer to go to a movie theater than it is to eat in a restaurant.”

UPDATED: 24 July 2020. From Screen Daily:

Speaking during a ScreenDaily Talk today, Enrique Gonzalez Kuhn, CEO of Spanish dist Caramel Films, added weight to the speculation & said: “Tenet will be on August 27, that’s for sure…I think [Warner Bros] will release in Asia & Europe & maybe the US & other countries later.
