Christopher Nolan's much awaited espionage drama Tenet will release on July 31, Warner Bros, confirmed on Friday.

Though the trailer was released recently, there was no news about the release date as cinema theatres remain closed in the US in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. US cinemas will reopen in July.

Speaking about Tenet in December last year, Nolan called it the most ambitious movie he has ever made. The 49-year-old filmmaker said the project, which he also produces alongside his frequent collaborator Emma Thomas, has been mounted on a scale that is "certainly the biggest in terms of international reach".

"We shot in seven countries, all over the place, with a massive cast and huge set pieces. There's no question, it's the most ambitious film we've made," Nolan added.

Though the plot details have kept under wraps by the studio Warner Bros, Nolan said is an espionage thriller that spans several countries. "We're jumping off from the point of view of an espionage film, but we're going to a number of different places. We're crossing a few different genres in a hopefully exciting and fresh way," Nolan told Entertainment Weekly.

The film features John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Clémence Poésy, Dimple Kapadia, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh among others.
