"Warner Bros. released Tenet, and I'm thrilled that it has made almost $350 million," the famed director said in early November. "But I am worried that the studios are drawing the wrong conclusions from our release — that rather than looking at where the film has worked well and how that can provide them with much needed revenue, they're looking at where it hasn't lived up to pre-COVID expectations and will start using that as an excuse to make exhibition take all the losses from the pandemic instead of getting in the game and adapting — or rebuilding our business, in other words."
Nolan was recently in the news for making heated statements regarding the unprecedented streaming deal between Warner Bros. and HBO Max, which will bring films like Dune, In the Heights, and The Matrix 4 to theaters and digital simultaneously.
