‘Tenet’ Crosses $300 Million at Global Box Office as Regal Cinemas Weighs Closures

Theaters that reopened in August face tough decisions as box office collapses

Warner Bros.’ “Tenet” has passed $300 million at the global box office and $45 million domestically, grossing $2.7 million at U.S. theaters this weekend as Cineworld announces that it will close its U.K. locations and could close most of its Regal Cinemas locations in the U.S.

Overall, the global box office total for the Christopher Nolan thriller now stands at $307 million, with $14.2 million grossed globally. Japan was the top overseas market, providing $2.5 million, while France and Germany combined for $2.1 million. In Great Britain — which is now seeing theaters close nationwide thanks to a combination of surging COVID-19 infections and news that MGM was moving the release of the James Bond film “No Time to Die” to 2021 — “Tenet” added $804,000 to bring its cume in Nolan’s home country to just under $21 million.
