UK new movie releases for weekend Friday, 28th August 2020 - Tenet, Ava, Hope Gap, Away and Savage

Cinemas closed back in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and since then many movies have had their release date changed or gone directly to VOD at a premium rate, the movie Tenet has for a long time been seen as the movie that will reopen cinemas and bring audiences back.

After a couple of release date changes the movie is here and with this event many more cinemas are re-opening, with safety precautions in place.

With the pandemic still an issue in the US the movie still has another couple of weeks before its release but cinemas are reopening far slower there.

Here is a rundown of this weeks movies, and I suspect one of them will replace one the current number one film, Unhinged, from the top of the box office chart.


  • The movie is directed by Christopher Nolan
  • Christopher Nolan also directed Insomnia in 2002 which grossed £5.1 Million in the UK.
  • It stars John David Washington who last starred in Monsters And Men (2019).
  • The film also stars Robert Pattinson who last appeared in The Lighthouse (2020).


  • This new release stars Jessica Chastain who's last film was IT Chapter Two (2019)
  • It also stars Common who appeared in The Kitchen (2019).
  • Jessica Chastain and Common appeared in Unity (2015) together.
  • The film is brought to us by Tate Taylor.

Hope Gap


  • Also this week there is Away from director Gints Zilbalodis marking a directorial debut.


  • The long list of new releases continues with Savage which is directed by Sam Kelly which is a directorial debut.
