‘Tenet’ Movie Earns $146m in Theatre Opening Weekend

The cinemas are making a slow but steady return, if last weekend’s box office openings are anything to go by. “Tenet” debuted in theatres worldwide (including Kenya) following multiple delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Directed by Christopher Nolan, the action flick earned an estimated $146.2 million on its opening weekend at the box office. For a film that cost about $200 million in production and more in marketing, Warner Bros. in a statement said that it was “very pleased” with the initial results. “There is literally no context in which to compare the results of a film opening during a pandemic with any other circumstance. We are in unprecedented territory, so any comparisons to the pre-COVID world would be inequitable and baseless”, read the statement.

Being the first major studio release, “Tenet” also got 74% worth of positive appraisals and a 79% audience score, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Edgar Obare Calls Out Artcaffé on Food Poisoning Allegation

Neither Edgar Obare nor Artcaffé are new to controversy. On Sunday, the blogger took to Instagram accusing Artcaffé of food poisoning. In a lengthy statement, Obare said that he was having lunch with a friend on Saturday when he started feeling uncomfortable. “…suddenly I feel like I have a scratchy throat, then I am tearing up”, he narrated, adding, “Now I am struggling to breathe as my nose is blocked and throat is closing up, I have hives all over my neck and it’s itchy”.

Obare was rushed to the hospital where the doctor said that he “was having an anaphylactic shock and I came very close”. He has since ruled out having an allergic reaction as was asked by the Artcaffé management when lodging a complaint, saying it was “not to the best of my knowledge”. Obare has since called out the coffee house for failing to attend to him when the staff saw he was unwell, “No one ran after me or even tried to help me. Being a high end restaurant I expected better”. Artcaffé was yet to respond to the allegations at the time of publishing this story.
