The coronavirus will delay the release of Christopher Nolan's ambitious new film, Tenet, indefinitely. Despite the best efforts of Warner Bros. and the director himself, the film will no longer release this summer as planned. It was initially slated to release in IMAX, 35mm, and 70mm formats worldwide on July 17.

The time-bending action-epic starring John David Washington was one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year, but fans will have to wait much longer to wrap their brains around the new film. It has already been delayed several times this year, but now Warner Bros. has placed it "firmly back on the shelf," reports Engadget.

Despite mounting anticipation around the film, little had been shared by way of plot details for the movie. It appears that Washington, who starred in Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, plays a detective. He is joined by a star-studded supporting cast that includes Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh, Dimple Kapadia, and Clémence Poésy.

According to Nolan himself, Tenet is "the most ambitious film we’ve made,” with a reported budget of more than $220 million making the movie Nolan's most expensive original film to date.
