Release of Christopher Nolan’s Film ‘Tenet’ Is Again Delayed

LOS ANGELES (AP) — With reported cases of the coronavirus surging, Warner Bros. on Thursday postponed the release of Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet,” further delaying Hollywood’s summer kickoff.

The sci-fi thriller starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson will move from July 31 to Aug. 12, a Wednesday. In a statement, the studio stressed the need for flexibility.
“We are choosing to open the movie mid-week to allow audiences to discover the film in their own time, and we plan to play longer, over an extended play period far beyond the norm, to develop a very different yet successful release strategy,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement.

Movie theaters had been pinning their hopes on the film as a major July release that could bring audiences back to theaters. Warner Bros. had planned to re-release Nolan’s 2010 blockbuster “Inception” in early July as a way to lead into “Tenet.” “Inception” will now open on July 31, the studio said. Movie theater chains had planned the widespread reopening of cinemas partially around the return of new releases like “Tenet” and Disney’s “Mulan.” The latter is currently scheduled for July 24 but it, too, is widely expected to be postponed again.

Butler Art Museum to Open July 7

YOUNGSTOWN – The Butler Institute of American Art will reopen July 7, although the Collections Café and the museum store will remain closed.
Educational programs and art classes will resume in July, according to Butler spokesperson Wendy Swick. However, programs and events that draw large gatherings, including artist receptions and lectures, will remain canceled, as will large tours. The Butler has extended an exhibition of Impressionist realism paintings by Sam Rosenthal until Aug. 16.

The museum’s annual National Midyear Exhibition has been canceled for this year.
