Warner Bros. CEO Doesn’t Regret ‘Tenet’ Theatrical Release

Warner Bros. chair-CEO Ann Sarnoff doesn’t regret the decision to release Christopher Nolan’s Tenet in theaters last month and revealed the studio is pleased with the film’s box office performance.

Christopher Nolan’s Tenet managed to be one of the few films that dared a theatrical release during COVID-19. As a result, Tenet opened in as many markets as it could and has earned $52 million domestically and $341 million in total. During normal times, any studio would view Tenet‘s gross as a box office bomb given its $200 million budget, but Warner Bros. is looking at the numbers with a positive perspective.

During a recent interview with Variety, Warner Bros chair-CEO Ann Sarnoff discussed the decision to have Tenet hit theaters during COVID-19 and revealed the studio is happy with the results Christopher Nolan’s latest film has produced so far:

“We’re very pleased with the results of Tenet. A couple of things: we knew it would over index in the international markets. Christopher Nolan has a huge, following, of course in the U.S., but his other movies have typically over indexed in international markets. If you remember back in June, July, August, the international markets were more open. We had this amazing movie, I don’t know if you’ve seen it, that really deserved to be seen on the big screen.”

Have you seen Tenet yet? If so, was the film worth it? Where does it rank for you amongst the other Christopher Nolan films? Let us know in the comments section below!

Here is the official synopsis for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet:

“John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle “Tenet.” Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion.”

Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, and Himesh Patel. Christopher Nolan also serves as a producer alongside his wife Emma Thomas, with Thomas Hayslip on board as an executive producer.

‘Sequel’: Danielle Harris Directing All-Female Slasher Movie From Producer Joe Dante

Danielle Harris, someone who has been a horror icon since she was about 11 years old, is set to direct Sequel, an all-female slasher movie being produced by Joe Dante. This won’t be Harris’ first time in the director’s chair – she helmed the 2008 film Prank and 2012’s Among Friends. Plot details for Sequel are still locked away, but the project is being described as “darkly comedic.”

Danielle Harris and Joe Dante are teaming for Sequel, an all-female slasher movie that Dante will produce and Harris will direct. James Moran, a writer on Doctor Who and Torchwood, and the screenwriter of the 2006 horror-comedy Severance. Mark Alan is also producing. The official announcement for the film doesn’t go into plot details, but does state that Sequel “promises to be a brash, unashamed spectacle led by an all-star cast of take-no-prisoner heroines, and presented by a high-caliber lineup of filmmakers.”

“I knew as soon as I finished reading the first act that Sequel was the perfect fit for me,” Harris said. “I could finally bring all of my experiences in the horror genre behind the camera and into these exceptionally written final girl characters. I’ve been on the hunt for a story that had strong female leads and was intelligent and darkly comedic. I just didn’t want to do anything paranormal since we have enough real-life evil without having to go make shit up. If I’m going to spend the next two years of my life on a film, it has to be fun – and this story has it all. With Joe Dante and Mark Alan by my side, we’re gonna kill it.”

Dante added: “Sequel is an ambitious undertaking, but it’s in good hands with a pro like Danielle at the helm. I’ve watched her literally grow up on film and it’s about time she got behind the camera to use all the expertise she’s picked up along the way. She’s intelligent, level-headed and clearly qualified to solve the myriad problems a director encounters while making a film.”

And writer James Moran said: “I couldn’t be happier to have Danielle captaining this – who better to marshal a group of heroines in a slasher movie?! Making a movie with the incredible Joe Dante is a dream come true, he’s a huge influence on my work. Everyone involved is super smart and creative, I feel like I won the slasher lottery. And survived…”

Filming is expected to start sometime in 2021.
