For American theaters, "Tenet" was supposed to be the film that brought audiences back to the movies. There was just one problem: "Tenet" opened, and hardly anyone showed up.

New York (CNN Business)For American theaters, "Tenet" was supposed to be the film that brought audiences back to the movies.

With no other big film on the schedule until at least November, US theaters are in for a dire fall season at the movies.

Other films in theaters like "Unhinged" and "The New Mutants" have also not found an audience, which led to a dismal box office this past weekend.

However, there are no promises that even if those cities open theaters that audiences will want to return, Bock said.

With streaming numbers kept close to the vest, it's difficult to gauge the effect that digital releases can have on a film's bottom line, but Bock believes streaming can work in line with theaters, at least for the time being.

Late October does have two films set to open in theaters with "Death on the Nile" from 20th Century Studios and Sony Animation's "Connected," but those films aren't on the level of the franchise films opening in November and December.
