Inception re-release to feature sneak peek of WB’s upcoming films
Following Warner Bros. Pictures’ announcement that Christoper Nolan’s Tenet has indeed been delayed to a later date, the studio will instead re-release Nolan’s 2010 film Inception on Tenet‘s original release date, July 17 which is just in time for the Leonardo DiCaprio-led film’s tenth anniversary.
In addition, the special re-release event will not only present new footage from Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film, but will also include a special sneak peek of the studio’s upcoming slate of new films which might feature the first footage from Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated Dune remake and Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong. Viewers might also be treated to some new footage from Wonder Woman 1984 which has also recently been delayed to October 2, 2020.
“This special anniversary theatrical event will also give audiences a never-before-seen look at footage from Nolan’s highly anticipated film Tenet, which will debut worldwide two weeks later, on July 31. Moviegoers will also be treated to an exclusive sneak peek of select films on Warner Bros.’ upcoming slate.” Warner Bros. said in a press release (via /Film).
Set to be released on December 18, 2020, Dune will feature a star-studded cast includes Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible — Fallout) and Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) in leading roles. The film will also feature Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home) Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men), Stellan Skarsgard (Thor: The Dark World), Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter) and Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame).
Villeneuve is best known for directing Blade Runner 2049 as well as Sicario. Though Dune will likely resemble the former film more than the latter, both display the sort of experience directing arid, desolate locales that a fan would want in their Dune director, considering a sizable chunk of the story takes place on a desert planet.
The epic action-adventure Godzilla vs Kong will pit two of the greatest icons in motion picture history against one another — the fearsome Godzilla and the mighty Kong — with humanity caught in the balance. The fourth installment in Warner Bros.’ Pictures and Legendary’s Monsterverse is directed by Adam Wingard from a script written by Oscar nominee Terry Rossio.
The film stars Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies, The Little Drummer Girl), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Rebecca Hall (Christine, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, Widows), Shun Oguri (Gintama), Eiza González (Baby Driver), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), and Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2). Also starring in the highly-anticipated movie are Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street, Manchester by the Sea) and Demián Bichir (The Nun, The Hateful Eight).
