Tenet will not air before getting a theatrical release

AMC Theaters boss Adam Aron can breathe a sigh of relief this morning, because he won’t have to ban future Warner Bros. movies from being screened in his theaters like he did for Universal. That was because NBCUniversal was making plans to release more great movies streaming even after the reopening of theaters, that Aron took as a breakdown of the way movie premieres are supposed to work, but Warner Bros. clearly still believes in the importance of theaters, at least for a specific movie that simply should will be released in theaters.

We are talking about Beginning, as we often do, which was delayed once again earlier this week when Warner Bros. decided get him off his next release schedule entirely. It no longer has a specific release date in the books, but at the time the study suggested it was still hoping it would hit theaters in 2020, even if that meant releasing it first outside of the U.S., as many Other countries really do have their shit together when it comes to the coronavirus. Now Warner Bros. has made its plans to Beginning a little more explicit with Deadline reports that the study has effectively confirmed that Beginning It won’t launch on a broadcast or VOD before it’s released in movie theaters.

In a conference call with analysts (sounds like fun), AT&T CEO John Stankey said he would be “very surprised” if a movie like Beginning or Wonder Woman didn’t have a traditional theatrical career, and went on to say, “I can assure you with BeginningThat won’t be the case. “So there’s a little bit of leeway there, since he, for example, didn’t get a tattoo that says”Beginning will be in theaters no matter what happens, “but AT&T is the parent company of WarnerMedia, so if anyone is going to comment on what happens to Beginning, It’s Stankey.
