‘Tenet’ Will Be Available To Watch Safely From Home This December

Tenet was released in September as a purely theatrical experience, just as Christopher Nolan wanted it. He, along with theater owners, hoped his blockbuster IMAX-sized film would be the event that drew audiences back. Well, it did that everywhere else in the world but here, and while Nolan is happy with the overall box office there’s no doubt that it was a disappointment. Now those who waited it out to see Tenet are going to get their wish, as the film is headed for home release very soon.

The wait is over. Tenet will hit Bluray, 4K, and digital on December 15th.  This will be great news for those who didn’t want to brave a pandemic just to see Nolan’s latest mind-fuck of a film, which starred John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Elizabeth Debicki.

Warner Bros. will have a shot to recoup some of the $200M+ budget on what turned out to be Nolan’s most ambitious film yet. Reviews were a bit mixed on it, including from yours truly, but Tenet is the kind of movie with so many big ideas and crazy action sequences that it demands multiple viewings. Now it’ll be a lot easier, and safer, to do that. Including in the Bluray release is a special featurette “Looking at the World in a New Way: The Making of Tenet”, and that’s definitely one to check out.
