Cinema operators hope “Tenet” and other blockbusters will help create a late-summer rebound.
Director Christopher Nolan's thriller "Tenet" will debut in cinemas on July 31, distributor Warner Bros. said on Friday, the first new blockbuster in months for movie theaters that need fresh films to lure audiences after pandemic-related closures.

Theaters are starting to reopen worldwide since going dark in mid-March to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. Cinema operators hope "Tenet" and other blockbusters will help create a late-summer rebound.
The "Tenet" release date announced Friday is two weeks later than the previously planned July 17 debut. But Warner Bros., a unit of AT&T Inc, confirmed that one of the year's most highly anticipated movies will not face a longer delay as many in Hollywood feared.
Warner Bros. postponed another summer release, "Wonder Woman 1984" to October from August.
