Yesterday we got a Tenet revised release date, September 3rd 2020, and over the labor day weekend.. The rest of the world looks get it a week earlier, as most of their cinemas are ready to open. The ‘human malware’ problem is particularly bad in the USA. Is this really the final change?

As a result of this major film date announcement other films are also firming up their dates accordingly.
