Christopher Nolan Talks “TENET” Release with Los Angeles Times


The LA Times spoke with Christopher Nolan and Tom Shone in relation to Shone’s new retrospective book on Nolan “The Nolan Variations: The Movies, Mysteries, and Marvels of Christopher Nolan”. Here’s what Christopher Nolan had to say about the current release of Tenet:

It is, though, an argument for taking movies seriously. And it’s out in a moment when the film business is facing existential challenges because of COVID-19. How do you see the outlook for movies?

Nolan: Well, it’s a difficult question to speak to. If you’re talking about the acceleration of existing trends, that’s something I started reading right at the beginning of the pandemic. And it ignores the reality that 2019 was the biggest year for theatrical films in history. They’d made the most money. The admissions were huge. So to me, it’s much more about: What’s the new reality we’re living in?

Warner Bros. released “Tenet,” and I’m thrilled that it has made almost $350 million. But I am worried that the studios are drawing the wrong conclusions from our release — that rather than looking at where the film has worked well and how that can provide them with much needed revenue, they’re looking at where it hasn’t lived up to pre-COVID expectations and will start using that as an excuse to make exhibition take all the losses from the pandemic instead of getting in the game and adapting — or rebuilding our business, in other words.

Long term, moviegoing is a part of life, like restaurants and everything else. But right now, everybody has to adapt to a new reality.

Although some are saying that the US release may be considered a failure, Box Office Pro reports the following:

“Warner Bros.’ TENET registered its first domestic weekend under $1 million, earning $885k from 1,601 locations. The Christopher Nolan thriller is the top-grossing new release in North America since the pandemic with $53.8 million. … Internationally TENET earned $3.3 million from 62 markets over the weekend, including a $277k debut in Brazil (1,000 screens). Top global markets for the title include China ($66.5M), North America ($53.8M), Japan ($24.1M), UK ($22.7M), and France ($22.5M).”

Tenet’s international box office is USD293 million giving it a total of USD346.8 million. To check out previous box office head to our roundup HERE.

I used to do this a lot with Robert’s films, but then I realised that sometimes box office doesn’t really matter – I know it does to those involved trying to make a profit, but the reality is – how can some films make any money when they are slated at ridiculous times at the cinema and last a nanosecond.  Anyway, I’m not making excuses, it’s just how I personally feel.  But I know people, like Carmel, like this kind of information, so here I am.  So far in Australia, Queen of the Desert has made AUD105,772 in 71 cinemas over a period of 4 days – that is, 2 to 5 June 2016.

From UrbanCinefile:

In relation to worldwide box office, Box Office Mojo records the following (including Australian figures based on 4 days) – USD1,368,710:

According to The Numbers (figures below are also in USD -also the Australian figures are based on 3 days):

Current Estimates

So according to Indiewire:

“Not doing quite so well (though it was released day-and-date on VOD) in its third weekend was “Maps To The Stars,” which Focus Features took from 61 down to 17 theaters this weekend after an Oscar qualifying release in late 2014 (which did result in a Golden Globe nomination for Julianne Moore, but not much else). The result was a 71% drop from last weekend, with “Maps” taking in just $19,000 for a $1,118 per-theater-average. It has now grossed $313,700.”

Again, the above figures are estimates from Box Office Mojo, who still haven’t corrected their foreign totals figure.  I’m trying to get figures for Spain – fingers crossed.

Updated with actuals

As at 8 March 2015:  The figures at the moment are only “estimates”,  since the official figures usually don’t come out until tomorrow my time, but I thought I would share this information until then. According to Box Office Mojo the estimate so far is $264,100 (figures haven’t been updated for the weekend, but they are estimating it at $64,000), the week so far is $200,128.  It’s not bad considering I’m told that there is hardly any advertising for Maps in the US.  I am still trying to obtain the figures for VOD, so stay tuned.  If you haven’t seen it yet and you want to know where you can, head on over to our post for a full list of cinemas or how to watch at home here.

You know I used to do this all the time with Rob’s films, but I realised with The Rover and I think maybe talking to David that box office isn’t really a reflection of anything.  Sure Hollywood loves movies that make money, but at the end of the day, I love movies that I love and as a cinema goer I don’t really care if a film makes $3,000 or $300 million.  And there are actors and directors out there who agree with me.  Point of fact is that in reality I actually steer away from the $300 million movies because they often never provide me with quality storytelling or acting.  And we know Rob chooses the movies he wants to make and I understand that some want Rob in more mainstream roles so they can see him at their local cinemas who often bypass his latest roles, but I just want to see him in whatever he chooses to make because imagine if Rob was the actor that did just do mainstream – we may never have seen his portrayal as Rey in The Rover, instead we’d be watching him in crap films like Neighbors|Bad Neighbours (and yes I saw it only because I was a captive audience on a flight to LA last September and I endured it during the 14 hour flight).  Food for thought.

Anyway I know there are loads of you that are interested in figures so here it goes:


“Not doing quite so well (though it was released day-and-date on VOD) was “Maps To The Stars,” which Focus Features sent out to 66 theaters after an Oscar qualifying release in late 2014 (which did result in a Golden Globe nomination for Julianne Moore, but not much else). The result was an underwhelming $139,000 for a $2,106 per-theater-average.”


“It opened in 66 theaters grossing $139K for a tepid $2,106 per-theater average, decidedly lower than Cronenberg’s last film, Cosmopolis. Entertainment One bowed that film, which also featured Pattinson, in three theaters in 2012. It had a decent opening gross of $70,339 and $23,446 PTA before clumping to a $763,556 domestic cume.

Before that, Cronenberg’s films typically had solid debuts and decent to good grosses. Sony Classics opened A Dangerous Method in 2011, grossing nearly $168K ($41,988 average). It went on to cume more than $5.7M. Eastern Promises opened in 2007 to a $547K weekend gross and $36,472 PTA before accumulating $17.26M. The 2005 drama A History Of Violence grossed nearly $516K its opening weekend for a $36,856 PTA and cumed $31.5M.”
