Film studio Warner Bros has announced British director Christopher Nolan's movie "Tenet", key scenes of which were filmed in Tallinn last year, will premiere in several Asian and European countries, including Estonia, on August 26.
At the end of August, "Tenet" will premiere in 70 countries across Europe and Asia, film portal Variety writes. The movie will air in U.S. movie theaters on September 3.
Although the number of people infected with the coronavirus in the U.S. has increased in recent weeks, movie theaters are still closed.
In addition to American audiences, China is an important country as well, but it's not yet known when the movie will first appear there, partly because cinemas in that country permit movies of only up to two hours. "Tenet" reportedly lasts for two and a half hours in its final cut.
If the premiere dates remain in place, "Tenet" - long heralded as the movie which would rescue the industry - will be the first major film to hit cinemas again following the coronavirus pandemic.
"Tenet" was partly filmed in Tallinn last summer, with scenes taking place in the Linnahall, on Laagna tee in Lasnamäe, on Pärnu maantee, and at other locations.
"Tenet" stars Robert Pattinson, John David Washington and Michael Caine.
Nolan's previous offerings include "Inception", "Memento" and "Dunkirk", so the latest movie maintains the one-word title pattern.
