Christopher Nolan's thriller has been through a fairly confusing timeline of release dates, but it looks like the movie will be released this summer after all. Well, maybe not here in Ireland...

The status of the 'Tenet' release date is still very much up in the air for us Irish fans. This comes following Warner Bros. revealing their list of over 70 countries where the movie will be released internationally from August 26. Ireland has not made the cut however, but the likes of the UK, Spain, Italy, and other territories around the world have.

The move comes as surges of COVID-19 have been recorded in US States in recent weeks, which temporarily put the movie on hold indefinitely last week. 'Tenet' will now release internationally at the end of August, followed by the US from September 3.

Nolan's 'Tenet' has really been pulled through the wringer in the past few months. The original release date had been set at July 17, but following the spike in cases, it was pushed further down the line multiple times.

Hopefully, we'll get confirmation on a 'Tenet' release date for Ireland very soon, as it does seem odd that Ireland has been left off of Warner Bros' list of countries. Alas, if the movie doesn't arrive on our shores next month after all, we do have another often-rescheduled movie to look forward to in 'The New Mutants'.

Irish cinemas are beginning to reopen across the country, with Dublin's Light House and Galway's Pálás the latest theatres to reopen their doors to the public this week.
