Cinemas across North America remain largely closed due to a recent spike in coronavirus cases. This has caused many films to further delay their releases, with Christopher Nolan’s Tenet completely dropped from the North American release slate.

Warner Bros., the studio behind Tenet and the UK release of Bill & Ted 3, said Nolan’s film would not be receiving a traditional global rollout due to the pandemic.

“We are not treating Tenet like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that,” Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich said.

The new Face The Music trailer gives us our best look at the film so far, revealing how Bill and Ted’s daughters Billie (Brigette Lundy-Paine) and Thea (Samara Weaving) factor in to the story.

After their fathers fail to write the song that will unite mankind, they set off into the past to recruit famous musicians to help.

They also feature on the film’s new poster below.
