Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” was the first big-budget Hollywood feature to go for a theatrical release since the novel Coronavirus pandemic shut down the cinemas worldwide in March. Tenet was amongst the highly-anticipated films across the globe.
Many gossips had come before regarding the Box office verdict of “Tenet”. The filmmaker had broken his silence regarding the wrong conclusion made by studios. Speaking to Los Angeles Times, Christopher Nolan said, “Warner Bros. released Tenet and I’m thrilled that it has made almost $350 million. 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.”
The spy thriller, which features an ensemble cast of John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh, saw a staggering release worldwide wherever the cinemas started to open in August.
Meanwhile, Tenet had done a business of $341 so far and among this just $52 million is from the US. In the most COVID affected country these digits are reasonable.
