Tenet Makes $53 Million Debut at the International Box Office

Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" made its long-awaited debut on global movie screens this weekend, grossing $53 million in 41 countries, including Canada, according to industry estimates released Sunday.

The film "Tenet" is written and directed by Christopher Nolan who is known for giving us cinema that explores time-bending ideas like that in "Inception" or "Interstellar". Although several theaters across the globe haven't reopened, Tenet has managed to get $53 million debut during the weekend. Robert Pattinson, acting in Tenet, cliched the most important and wonderful role in the movie The batman. South Korea follows with 5.1 million dollars, Germany with 4.2 million dollars.

Tenet cost $200 million to produce, so getting all the way out of the negative will be a hard task.

The only other new release that could have potentially competed was The New Mutants, which opened in the U.S. this weekend past.

"We are off to a fantastic start internationally and couldn't be more pleased", said Toby Emmerich, Chairman of Warner Bros. Even factoring in audiences staying away due to America's alarming COVID-19 figures and The New Mutants' relatively small $67 million production budget, that's still a rather modest opening for the X-Men spinoff (which Disney inherited from Fox). I'll probably have to wait until then to see it on the big screen, but right now this is my official stance about going to the cinema.

We're only a few short days away from the latest blockbuster by Christopher Nolan, the time-inversing globe-trotting action spectacle Tenet.

Not opening in theaters at all will certainly damage a movie's ability to make money, but we still don't really know how much opening in a hampered box office will really fix that problem.
