Christopher Nolan’s Next Movie Gets July 2020 Release Date

Warner Bros. has set Christopher Nolan’s next movie for July 17, 2020.

The studio made the announcement Friday afternoon about the untitled project, which will also be released in Imax. It did not reveal any other details.

Warner Bros. released Nolan’s “Dunkirk” on the same weekend in 2017. The studio has handled distribution on every Nolan film since 2002’s “Insomnia,” taking international on “The Prestige” and “Interstellar” and worldwide on “Batman Begins,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Dunkirk.”

“Dunkirk,” which recounted the 1940 rescue of 340,000 Allied troops pinned down by the Nazis, was a critical and commercial success. It received eight Oscar nominations, including best picture for Nolan and producing partner Emma Thomas and director for Nolan, in addition to grossing $526 million worldwide.

Nolan and Thomas were also nominated for the best picture Oscar for “Inception,” for which he also received a screenplay nomination. Nolan’s 10 films have grossed a cumulative $4.7 billion in worldwide box office, led by “The Dark Knight Rises” with $1.08 billion and “The Dark Knight” with $1 billion.

Besides “Dunkirk,” Warner Bros. also released three other Nolan movies in July: 2008’s “The Dark Knight,” 2010’s “Inception,” and 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Nolan’s new film is the third title slated to open on July 17, 2020, joining Paramount’s “The SpongeBob Movie” and Fox’s “Bob’s Burgers.”
