The studio said it would delay the release by two weeks and instead re-issue Nolan's 2010 sci-fi blockbuster “Inception” in mid-July.

Cineworld Cinemas Push Back Re-Opening Date To 31 July .
As the government’s lockdown restrictions ease up, British cinemas will once again be allowed to open this weekend from 4 July. But while some film venues look set to open as early as possible, one of the major chains has in fact delayed its reopening. Cineworld had previously announced intentions to reopen its venues from 10 July, but has now pushed that back to 31 July. In a statement, the chain confirmed that it will wait three more weeks to open up again – partly owing to the change in release dates for Mulan and Tenet, both of which were also pushed back in the past few days.
