Given the problems and complexities that COVID has had on the film industry, trying to plan and adhere to a release date has left studios and distributors with one hell of a mind melt.
Well, in a weird way, that's a perfectly apt description for the films of Christopher Nolan and his next release, Tenet.
The latest feature from the director of Inception, The Prestige, Memento, and The Dark Knight Trilogy was always going to be a massive event. However, Tenet has taken on more significance in recent months due to the closure of cinemas and the delay in major films being released.
Simply put, we all want to go back to the cinema and like so many filmmakers, Nolan's films need to be seen in the cinema and on the biggest screen possible.
Thankfully, Warner Brothers have confirmed to Balls.ie that they will release Tenet in Ireland on August 26.
In doing so, Tenet will be the first major tentpole film to be released in cinemas since the pandemic.
Nolan’s film has already been delayed three times since it was originally scheduled to debut in mid-July, here's hoping that its release runs smoother over the next few weeks.
Like so many of Nolan's films, plot details are scarce but the official synopsis states: "Armed with only one word - Tenet - and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist (John David Washington) journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time"
Take a look at what's in store when Tenet is released on August 26 (hopefully!)
