Pirated Recordings of ‘Tenet’ are Showing Up Online Ahead of US Release

WarnerBros blockbuster Tenet is set to release in US theaters this week, but it appears pirated recordings are already showing up online. Poor quality screen recordings of the film have popped up on the internet, some with foreign language subtitles, and WarnerBros is working hard to get them taken down.

It’s unclear to tell how many views the recordings have gotten, but it’s likely not enough to affect the film’s success at the box office. Although this could be detrimental to the return of the movie-going-experience in the future if pirated movies become more widespread or higher quality. Theater chains are rolling out widespread campaigns to draw viewers back into the seats as location reopenings start popping up across the country.

The long-awaited Christopher Nolan film Tenet is hitting the big screen two days early in select cities where theaters are open. Warner Bros. is holding early access screenings on Aug. 31, Sept. 1 and Sept. 2, three days ahead of the movie’s premiere date.

“Warner Bros. is proud to support our partners in exhibition as they reopen their doors,” said Jeff Goldstein, President, Warner Bros. Pictures Domestic Distribution. “And there could be no better film to welcome audiences back to a true big-screen experience than Tenet.”

Tenet will mark the reopening of movie theatres in the U.S., just a few days after Canada’s August 27th release of the film. The U.S. release date has been pushed back multiple times throughout the summer due to theater closures and concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. Now the movie-going experience is creating a comeback with a big name film like Tenet to draw in crowds after more than a season-long hiatus.
