A lot of people thought that it was too early and too unsafe for cinemas to re-open, but WB was adamant that Christopher Nolan’s Tenet had to come out this year. What’s weird is, two people got hurt during a screening to Tenet, but it wasn’t from COVID-19, but rather something else.
According to Variety, a cinema at Singapore had two audience members injured when a ceiling partially collapsed on them during a screening of Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated blockbuster. Apparently a large section of the ventilation duct had fallen through the ceiling onto the people in the audience.
A spokesperson for the mall had this to say about the incident, “Unfortunately, two patrons were injured. They were quickly attended to by our staff and then by paramedics who arrived. They were subsequently taken to the hospital.”

For now, the theater will be closed until further notice, probably to figure out why the ceiling fell in the first place.
If anything, this ceiling collapse doesn’t really have anything to say about Tenet itself. I guess it’s just an ironic piece of news counting that a majority of cinemas around the world are still unsafe because of the pandemic. Looking at the stats, Singapore was actually able to handle the pandemic better than its out Southeast Asian neighbors.
In a twilight world of international espionage, an unnamed CIA operative, known as The Protagonist, is recruited by a mysterious organization called Tenet to participate in a global assignment that unfolds beyond real time. The mission: prevent Andrei Sator, a renegade Russian oligarch with precognition abilities, from starting World War III. The Protagonist will soon master the art of “time inversion” as a way of countering the threat that is to come.
Unless you’re completely sure it’s safe, you can check out Tenet now in select theaters.
