The release date is welcome news for movie theater operators, who are counting on big-budget movies such as 'Tenet' to help lure audiences out of their homes during the pandemic.
"Mulan" was scheduled to debut in March but was postponed until July 24 when the coronavirus outbreak forced theatres around the world to close. It's now moving to August 21.
Theatres are starting to reopen worldwide since going dark in mid-March to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. Cinema operators hope "Tenet" and other blockbusters will help create a late-summer rebound.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will return to the iconic comedy’s original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros, says AT&T Inc's WarnerMedia.
Hollywood has embraced diversity on-screen, but progress has been much slower off-screen.
Disney’s animated sequel scored another $34.7 million in North America.
The racing drama was successful with male audiences, while Sony's action-comedy "Charlie's Angels" had an unimpressive opening and "Joker" became the first R-rated movie to gross $1 billion.
"Joker" narrowly bested "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" to regain the No 1 spot at the weekend box office in its fourth week of release.
Amid fears that the film might inspire violence, some theatres provided extra security for the opening night.
A police spokeswoman says that while there have been no credible threats in the Los Angeles area, "the department will maintain high visibility around movie theaters when (the film) opens" next week.
Proving again the lure of a good scare, the Stephen King-inspired film "IT Chapter Two" took in $91 million this weekend to top the North American box office.
