Christopher Nolan's new movie "Tenet" garnered around $20.2 million in the US over Labor Day weekend. Usually, Nolan's movies make around $50m during an opening weekend but around 45% of the country's film venues remain closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Domestically, while our results show positive like-for-like theatre indicators compared to previous films such as Dunkirk, there is literally no context in which to compare the results of a film opening during a pandemic with any other circumstance. We are in unprecedented territory, so any comparisons to the pre-COVID world would be inequitable and baseless," Warner Bros said in a statement.
