Christopher Nolan's much-hyped film Tenet finally has an Irish release date

We don't have much longer to wait.

After several delays, it was announced today (30 July) that Christopher Nolan's mega-hyped new film Tenet will arrive in Irish theatres on 26 August.

The movie, which cost somewhere between $200-225 million to make, will have a staggered release. Ireland, the UK, Europe and Asia will all be able to see it on the above date, while the US will be waiting until 3 September. Not only that, but the movie will only play in select cities.

Starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki and Kenneth Brannagh, the film looks seems to follow Nolan's penchant for mindfreakery, previously explored in films like Memento and Inception.

The trailer needs to be watched several times to even reach the first step of understanding what the hell might be going on in Tenet.

Cinemas have been permitted to reopen in Ireland since 29 June, as long as social distancing measures are in place.

While that's vital for public health, it means it might be that much harder to get a ticket for Tenet on opening day.
