The science fiction film already finished shooting last year and is waiting for its premiere in a world where Hollywood is not stopping major productions for fear of the impact of the coronavirus. However, this co-production between Canada, Hungary, the United States, and the United States States are maintaining the initially planned release date for the time being.
When will Dune hit theaters?
The simultaneous arrival in theaters and HBO MAX — a practice Warner has already ruled out before 2022 — of “Dune” is slated for October 1, 2021. Initially, the premiere was scheduled for December 18, 2020, but Hollywood isn’t ceasing to delay releases. Lately, in response to the coronavirus pandemic and when Warner moved ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ to December 25, it ensured that the date change from ‘Dune’ was only a matter of time.
What is Dune?
“Dune” is a science fiction novel written by Frank Herbert and first published in 1965. Its great success led the author to create several sequels, which died shortly after the publication of the sixth part, with an open ending, in 1985. Of course, years later, his son Brian Herbert closed the franchise with two new novels written alongside Kevin J. Anderson.
The story of ‘Dune’ revolves around Paul Atreides, a family member responsible for the exploitation of Arrakis, the only planet with access to a very precious possession. Previously controlling the earth with an iron fist, the Harkonen decide to regain power, forcing Paul to flee to the desert, where he must face endless dangers and devise a plan to defeat the Harkonen.
Cast and protagonists of ‘Dune.’
The new adaptation of ‘Dune’ has without a doubt one of the best casts in recent years. Before it, we have Timothée Chalamet, the great revelation of the great ‘Call Me By Your Name, who brings the young Paul Atreides to life. By his side, in every way, we will have Rebecca Ferguson and Oscar Isaac in the role of their parents.
Stellan Skarsgard, for her part, takes on the shoes of Vladimir Harkonnen, the great enemy of the Atreides. In contrast, Charlotte Rampling will take place between good and evil as Reverend Mother Mohiam.
In addition, ‘Dune’ also features Javier Bardem, Zendaya, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Jason Momoa, Stephen Henderson, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, and David Dastmalchian. A lot of talent together.
Will there be a sequel to Dune?
Dune is technically called Dune: Part One, so it shouldn’t surprise you that fans are already talking about Dune: Part Two.
“Will we get a sequel to Dune? When you watch the movie, you see how it ends,” WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff said on the day Part One debuted in US theaters. “I think you pretty much know the answer to that.”
After grossing an estimated $40.1 million on its North American debut, Dune hit theaters in 75 countries, earning him over $200 million. The impressive display led to confirmation of a sequel…
“I just got news from Legendary [Entertainment] that we are officially moving forward with Dune: Part Two,” director Denis Villeneuve announced on October 26. “It was a dream of mine to adapt Frank Herbert’s Dune, and I have to thank the fans, the cast, and crew, Legendary, and Warner Bros. thank you for supporting this dream. This is just the beginning.”
