A week after Tenet was removed from the release calendar, Tenet has provided life to the summer blockbuster season, at least outside of the United States. Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film will debut internationally starting on August 26 before opening in select cities in North America over Labor Day weekend on September 3.

Warner Bros. announced Monday that Tenet is releasing at the end of August in 70 overseas territories, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, and the United Kingdom. At this time, it’s unclear what parts of the U.S. will play the film.

As first reported by Variety, “Warner Bros. recently began telling exhibitors in Europe and Asia about plans for an Aug. 26-28 opening weekend. Strong ticket sales for “Train to Busan” sequel “Peninsula,” which has generated $21 million in Korea since July 15, was a sign of confidence to studios that patrons were ready to get out of the house and attend the movies.”
