Tenet has finally seen buses repostered to suggest the arrival of a new movie in cinemas. Of course, cinemas have been shut for some time, and many are not open yet. Now fans have a new movie to watch, finally – but when is it out and will it be in cinemas?
When is Tenet coming out?
Tenet is coming out very soon indeed – on August 26.
This means the film will be coming out on a Wednesday, which will see its ‘opening weekend’ extended by a couple of days, hopefully meaning its box office takings will look larger by the end of the week.
However, fans will need to check their local cinema to see if the film is playing.

Is Tenet playing in cinemas?
Of course, fans will know many cinemas have been closed for a long while due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As a result, many films have been forced to be home released rather than on the big screen, with cinemas awaiting news on when they can open.
Now, cinemas can open, but they have to adhere to strict guidelines about social distancing and fans must wear a mask in the cinema to enjoy the film.

With that being said, many cinemas are now open, though some smaller independent cinemas may still be waiting to open.
Film fans hoping to see Tenet should check their local cinema to see if it is open before venturing to the cinema.
As well as this, director Christopher Nolan has, as with many of his films, made it specifically for IMAX, meaning Tenet certainly will benefit from being seen on the biggest screen possible.
What is Tenet about?
The plot for Tenet is one which is better not knowing before entering the cinema, as spoilers can be easily found with very few words uttered.
The official synopsis is a good attempt at giving sufficiently spoiler-free information and reads: “John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle Tenet.
“Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real-time. Not time travel. Inversion.”
The film also stars Robert Pattinson, Sir Kenneth Branagh, Sir Michael Caine, Elizabeth Debicki, Himesh Patel, Clémence Poésy, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Dimple Kapadia.
