Tenet Featurette

Christopher Nolan‘s complex time inversion blockbuster Tenet is finally leaving theaters and coming to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD just in time for Christmas. To hype the forthcoming home video release, Warner Bros. Pictures released a featurette that showcases hip-hop artist Travis Scott‘s original song “The Plan” and how it came to be in the movie. It turns out we have Grammy-winning Black Panther composer Ludwig Göransson (above right) to thank for that. Read More »

Tenet Blu-ray

If you missed Tenet in theaters due to obvious reasons, here’s good news: Christopher Nolan‘s latest action epic is headed to 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital in December, just in time for the holidays. The home media release is, unfortunately, lacking in special features. But on the plus side, you’ll be able to turn the subtitles on and figure out what the hell everyone in this movie is mumbling about.

Once upon a time, Tenet was going to be the movie that saved movie theaters. To be fair, no one directly involved with the movie actually said that out loud. But it was an assumption that set in – an assumption that the film would open in the summer and revitalize the coronavirus-stricken box office. Of course, as we all know, the movie didn’t even open over the summer. Instead, it got pushed to September. And rather than save theaters, Tenet seemed to signal the beginning of the end, despite pretty good box office returns. Now, director Christopher Nolan is weighing-in on what happened.

The War with Grandpa Box Office

As if 2020 wasn’t already weird enough, the family comedy The War with Grandpa, starring Robert De Niro and directed by Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties filmmaker Tim Hill, has dethroned Christopher Nolan‘s sci-fi action blockbuster Tenet from the top spot on the box office charts. All it took was $3.6 million to knock Tenet out of the number one spot, which it held for six weekends in a row. But how did the rest of the weekend fare? Did any other movies from the past return to the charts? Find out below. Read More »

Hey, remember Tenet? The movie that was going to save movies until it didn’t? Well, it’s still playing, which means it’s still taking in box office dollars, which means I am bound by law to report them. I have no choice in the matter, and neither do you. You must read this or you’ll be in big, big trouble. Christopher Nolan‘s latest cerebral action-thriller has just now crossed the $300 million mark globally, which isn’t bad, until you remember that the flick needs to hit at least $800 million to break even.

If a movie makes it to No. 1 at a box office during a pandemic, does it make a sound? Because the fate of the Autumn movie slate and struggling cinemas depend on the box office success of Tenet, it kind of does. But right now, it’s just a quiet thump. Christopher Nolan’s espionage film led a mild U.S. box office this past weekend, earning $3.4 million in its fourth weekend. That gives Tenet the unusual distinction of being the lowest-grossing chart topper in 32 years, since David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers topped with the box office with a $3 million opening weekend in 1988.

Tenet has hit a major box office milestone, crossing the $250 million mark at the global box office. But while all is rosy for Christopher Nolan‘s spy film overseas, the Tenet box office numbers continue to stall in the U.S., where it earned a paltry $4.7 million in its third weekend.

tenet box office vs mulan

Today in news that isn’t good for theaters: Mulan has allegedly made more money on its premium Disney+ VOD run than Tenet‘s entire box office haul so far. The keyword here is “allegedly” since the numbers are a bit sketchy, but if reports are to be believed, it certainly looks like more audiences have plopped down their hard-earned cash to watch Mulan from the safety of their homes rather than venture out to a theater to see the latest from Christopher Nolan.

Tenet and Mulan are both serving as the bellwether by which the movie industry will figure out how it can move forward amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic – Warner Bros.’ Tenet as the marker for box office success in the U.S., and Disney’s Mulan as a test on the power of streaming. But a week after both of their stateside releases, Tenet and Mulan are facing major box office struggles, with Tenet hitting a wall domestically and Mulan faltering in China.
