Dune release delayed
It remains uncertain, at least for the moment, if the upcoming film will release exclusively in theatres or also debut simultaneously on HBO Max
Warner Bros. has delayed the release of Denis Villeneuve's Dune by several weeks, pushing it to October 22. Previously slated for October 1, it remains uncertain, at least for the moment, if the upcoming film will release exclusively in theatres or also debut simultaneously on HBO Max.
Dune's delay is part of a bigger release date shuffle by Warner Bros. that sees The Many Saints of Newark take the spot previously held by the Villeneuve film and Clint Eastwood’s upcoming film Cry Macho move up to September 17. Meanwhile, ahead of its theatrical October release, Dune will have its worldwide premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September and followed by Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Villeneuve of Blade Runner 2049 fame, co-wrote the screenplay with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth and directed an ensemble cast that includes Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, and Stellan Skarsgard.
Dune will finally hit theatres on October 22.
