Christopher Nolan’s Tenet hasn’t done so well at the theaters (through no fault of its own) but the film’s overall success could be influenced by a home media release.
Today, The Hollywood Reporter posted that Tenet will release to Blu-ray, 4k Blu-ray, DVD and Digital formats on December 15th. Pre-orders begin on November 10th, 2020 with suggested retail prices of $44.95 (4k Blu-ray), for $35.99 (Blu-ray), and $28.98 (DVD).
Price Update: $29.99 (4k Blu-ray) $24.99 (Blu-ray) Order on Amazon
Both the Blu-ray formats will be packaged in “combo packs” with a second disc and code to redeem a Digital Copy. And, there’s confirmation of an hour-long bonus feature titled “Looking at the World in a New Way: The Making of Tenet” that includes interviews with the cast and crew.
We didn’t get retail prices for the digital “non-disc” versions of Tenet, but we expect the SD/HD/UHD formats to cost either $19.99 or UHD priced higher at $24.99. [Price Update: All Digital formats are priced $19.99.]
Given the lack of big-budget films this fall, Tenet should do well in the home entertainment business. The movie is a complex but engaging action film that stars John David Washington and Robert Pattinson.
There is also an exclusive SteelBook edition of Tenet from Best Buy, as previous Nolan films like Inception and Interstellar have been packaged in the collectible hard-shell case. (See SteelBook artwork below.)
