Denis Villeneuveâ€™s Dune Release Date Delayed to 2021
Collider is reporting that the release date for Denis Villeneuveâ€™s Dune has been pushed back to October 1, 2021. The Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures feature was originally scheduled to release on December 18, 2020. Dune will now release against Warner Bros.â€™ The Batman.
A mythic and emotionally charged heroâ€™s journey, theÂ DuneÂ movie tells the story of Paul Atreides (TimothÃ©e Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planetâ€™s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence â€” a commodity capable of unlocking humanityâ€™s greatest potential â€” only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
The star-studded cast includes TimothÃ©e Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible â€” Fallout), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame), Stellan SkarsgÃ¥rd (Thor: The Dark World), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Fences), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Chang Chen (Love And Destiny), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Sex Education), with Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men).
Villeneuve is best known for directingÂ Blade Runner 2049Â as well asÂ Sicario. ThoughÂ DuneÂ 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 theirÂ DuneÂ director, considering a sizable chunk of the story takes place on a desert planet.
