How Victorians responded to news they won’t be able to see Tenet previews

Yesterday we broke the news that Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated time-twisting thriller Tenet will be having preview screenings in Australia the weekend before its national theatrical release, on August 27.

Ordinarily this would incite rapturous applause the country over. But these are not ordinary times, as the good folk in Victoria are well aware. The state is currently in strict lockdown, due to a second wave of the coronavirus.

Victorian Twitter users did not take the news very well. Below is a sample of how people responded. We feel your pain, Victoria. Stay safe and remember: one day this will all be a distant memory.
