Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” has continued to dominate the pole position at the U.K. and Ireland box-office, collecting $1,011,097 (UGX 3,739,011,428.58) from 616 locations in its fourth weekend, according to final numbers from Comscore.
This dominant win puts The Warner Bros. title at a running total of $17,617,559 in the territory, making it a must-watch for those who are big-time Nolan fans.
Right behind Tenet, is Shear Entertainment’s young adult romance “After We Collided” that continues to gain with $759,605 from 454 sites and now has a total of $2,183,291. It’s directed by Roger Kumble (the same director behind “Suits” and “Pretty Little Liars”).
The film is a follow up to last year’s “After” and both are based on novels by Ann Todd. The film has collected some $30 million worldwide, making it this year’s late summer sleeper hit.
Despite the coronavirus, Nolan’s action-packed Tenet continues to rise to the top, shuttering movie theatres all over the globe. Based on studio estimates made on Sunday, the Warner Bros. film earned $25.3M from 54 overseas markets giving it a total of over $250M worldwide.
“There’s no question that this is an extraordinarily challenging marketplace, especially for North America,” said Paul Dergarabedian, Comscore’s senior media analyst. “This is a slow rollout. It’s going to take some time.”
What is Tenet all about?
Tenet is a 2020 thriller film written and directed by Christopher Nolan, who produced it with Emma Thomas as a co-production between the United Kingdom and the United States. The film stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.
The movie follows the story of a secret agent (Washington) as he manipulates the flow of time to prevent World War III from happening. Expect mind-blowing effects and action-packed scenes from this title.
Nolan took more than five years to write the screenplay after deliberating about Tenet’s central ideas for over a decade. Pre-production began in late 2018, casting in March 2019, and principal photography extended over three months in Denmark, Estonia, India, Italy, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States, from May to November.
