Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated new movie Tenet is luring film fans back to cinemas in America.

The movie, starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson, brought in $20.2 million over the Labor Day weekend, giving the film a $150 million global opening, according to Variety.

The movie debuted in the United States in just over 2,800 cinemas, which were restricted from hosting full houses due to coronavirus guidelines.
