In a recent interview, Jason Kilar, the CEO of Warner Media said, “We believe in the theatrical business. We’re excited to partner with Chris Nolan to get Tenet out in theaters first and foremost. And then of course, it will be in another formats, in other venues, that are not theatrical. But I think, if you look at our behavior, we’re believers in the theatrical experience and are also of course in very close communication with everyone in the exhibition industry, about the topic of windows and about how we can collectively serve consumers in the best way possible going forward…So I know it’s a pretty provocative topic, and I get that and it’s very understandable. But at the end of the day, I’m excited about it, and I’m leaning into it.”
