Christopher Nolan movies almost demand another look and “ Tenet ” is no exception. On Tuesday, audiences will finally be able to watch, re-watch and dissect the palindromic spy thriller starring John David Washington and Elizabeth Debickifrom the comfort of their home.
It’s been over two months since movie theaters started reopening in the U.S., but there is still a fair amount of consumer confusion about moviegoing in the COVID-19 era.
Moviegoing audiences in North America are not rushing back to the theater just yet and “Mulan” is also faltering in its China release as the global box office slowly comes back online in the COVID-19 era.
NEW YORK (AP) — In a litmus test for American moviegoing in the pandemic, Christopher Nolan's “Tenet” brought in an estimated $20.2 million through the holiday weekend in U.S. and Canadian theaters.
The result could be greeted as either the rejuvenation of U.S. cinemas — more Americans went to the movies this weekend than they have in nearly six months — or a reflection of drastically lowered standards for Hollywood's top blockbusters given the circumstances.
It was Christopher Nolan’s producer and wife, Emma Thomas, who suggested he watch Steve McQueen’s “Widows” and take a look at Elizabeth Debicki. She’d been blown away by her performance as the beleaguered Alice and thought the Australian actor might be right for the female lead in “ Tenet.”
Christopher Nolan only casts movie stars as his leading men. From Leonardo DiCaprio and Hugh Jackman to Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey, Nolan’s actors are larger-than-life, capital “S” stars.
NEW YORK (AP) — The first wave of big new movies released since the beginning of the pandemic, including Christopher Nolan's mind-bending thriller “Tenet” and the long-delayed “X-Men” spinoff “The New Mutants," arrived in theaters over the weekend, testing the waters of a radically different theatrical landscape.
I went in fresh to “Tenet.” I didn’t have any real sense of the plot, yes, but it's more that it had been some five months since I was last in a movie theater. That’s a long hiatus — a dark ages for sitting in the dark — for someone, anyone, used to going to the movies more days than not. The last film I had seen in a cinema, back in March, was the Vin Diesel vehicle “Bloodshot,” so you can imagine my eagerness for a new aftertaste.
Some U.S. moviegoers will be able to see Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” a few days early. Warner Bros. on Tuesday said that it would be offering early access screenings starting Aug. 31 as a gesture of support to the domestic theaters that are reopening after five months of being closed because of COVID-19.
The $200 million spy thriller starring John David Washington will open more widely in the U.S. on Sept. 3.
Before it was possible to buy “a Tesla" and probably since, Nikola Tesla has been chronically underappreciated. Wider recognition has been steadily climbing for the Croatian-born visionary whose electric innovations did much to make the 21st century world of wireless power transmission. But he's still seen fleetingly in film.
NEW YORK (AP) — In the latest plan for Hollywood’s hopeful return to moviegoing during the pandemic, Warner Bros. will release Christopher Nolan's “Tenet” in an unprecedented fashion, opening it internationally first on Aug. 26, with a U.S. release in select cities to follow over Labor Day weekend.
NEW YORK (AP) — Christopher Nolan's “Tenet,” which had hoped to herald Hollywood's return to big theatrical releases, has yet again postponed its release due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Warner Bros. said Monday that “Tenet” will not make its August 12 release date. Unlike previous delays, the studio this time didn't announce a new target for the release of Nolan's much-anticipated $200 million thriller.
NEW YORK (AP) — Hollywood's hopes for salvaging its summer season have effectively ended after the releases of both Christopher Nolan's “Tenet” and the Walt Disney Co.'s live-action reboot of “Mulan” were again delayed.
With reported cases of the coronavirus surging in parts of the U.S., Disney on Friday followed Warner Bros. in pushing “Mulan" to late August. The film, initially planned to open in March, had been slated for July 24. It's now moving to Aug. 21.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The six-year fan campaign for a standalone Black Widow movie was paying off: at long last, a film would put Scarlett Johansson’s popular Avenger front and center. And, like many of Marvel’s biggest spectacles, it was set to open the weekend of May 1.
CANNES, France (AP) — Thirty-nine years later, Jack is still not a dull boy.
In a new pristine restoration, Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday evening. It was the second straight year that a Kubrick movie landed on the Croisette, following last year when Christopher Nolan brought what he termed an "unrestored" cut of "2001: A Space Odyssey."
LONDON (AP) — British divers who rescued young soccer players trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand are among those being recognized in Britain's New Year's Honors List, along with 1960s model Twiggy and Monty Python star Michael Palin.
Twiggy, a model who shot to stardom during the Beatles era, will become a "dame" — the female equivalent of a knight — while Palin, whose second career has seen him become an acclaimed travel documentary maker, receives a knighthood.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Hitman's Bodyguard" stole the weekend from the heist pic "Logan Lucky." Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds, "The Hitman's Bodyguard" opened to $21.4 million, easily topping the weekend which continued the downward spiral of the summer movie season compared to last year.
