Everything's probably about to clear out of 2020 and start looking at release dates for next year soon. It's July 20, in a normal world movies to be released in the spring and some for next summer would start their marketing campaigns at this point.

Nope.

They probably should just pick and choose which countries to release it in first based entirely on safety. Other countries' incompetence shouldn't get in the way.

Can American work harder so that we can see Tenet on big screen sooner?

That's asking for too much (especially from this administration).

This. 
 

That article hinted at an international release date and a slow roll out for struggling America, only in the cities that have managed to get Covid under control.

Do a staggered release. Seriously, international theatres shouldn't have to suffer because of the stupidity of America.

A staggered rollout isn't a bad idea, they already do that for specialist films. 

 

I'm guessing September for Tenet OS now that Conjuring has moved.

Something tells me we won’t see this domestically until November or December

This could be perfect time for small release from A24 or Sony Classic to have mini-breakout, they have been doing staggering release all this while after all.

"Unconventional"? They saw Unhinged opening with big numbers in Germany and are following that model.

This still isn't gonna release for months even if they want to pursue their unoconventional strategy.

It depends. If they treat the US as a whole, then Tenet won't play here this year. If they instead are content with allowing it to play in some markets and not others (because theaters are shuttered) then maybe it does open in the US in 2020.

 

I'm just very surprised they seem to have settled on the staggered release option. I view it as a huge risk.

But if Nolanites travel to Vermont or Hawaii to watch Tenet, they could carry the virus...

I’m not so sure the staggered release in the US would really work. If they opened it in New Jersey, but New York theatres are still closed, what’s to stop someone travelling from NYC to watch it in an NJ cinema and accidentally spreading the virus to NJ? If your state’s cinemas are closed but a nearby one is open, I’d bet a lot of Nolan fans would just take a drive to the nearest open cinema. The only way I can see this working is if it’s considerable distances between open cinemas.

If we are very, very lucky. The experts warnings about a second wave this winter are not promising for this scenario.

Yeah, just push it to 2021. WB is being myopic here and they aren’t doing theaters any favors with their wiffle-waffling.

Feel like any unconventional release strategy would be more productively used by conventional tentpoles, namely franchise movies and remakes that don't rely on any original plotting and wouldn't really be damaged by spoilers.
