As movie theater chains explore reopening options, the industry has been planning around two likely blockbusters, Disney’s Mulan and Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. And while the latter film had been slotted into the July 17th slot, Warner Bros. announced it will push the film back by two weeks, setting its new release for July 31st.

The move potentially buys more time for theater chains as they attempt to resume business after a prolonged shutdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this week, we reported on the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) estimating that 90 percent of movie theaters could reopen in July, with Tenet expected to be one of the first major draws to get moviegoers back into seats. Warner Bros. has said it likely needs at least 80 percent of theaters to reopen and carrying Tenet in order to make a profit on the $200 million movie.

Warner Bros. also set a new release date for Wonder Woman 1984, which moves from an August 14th release to October 2nd.

While some movies, like Trolls World Tour, have found success skipping a theatrical release and heading straight to the home market, Tenet director Nolan has been a longtime support of the theater experience. With the move to July 31, and barring further schedule shifts, it looks like Mulan will be the first big-budget film on offer as more theaters reopen.
