With several movies with continuously changing release dates due to COVID-19, the 2020 remake of David Lynch’s 1984 sci-fi thriller, bases on Frank Herbert’s bestselling novel (1965) has just gotten a (new) official release date for October 1, 2021.
The much anticipated sci-fi epic shares a release date with The Batman starring Robert Pattinson.
Dune is a movie about the war for control of the planet Arrakis…and there are several CGI giant Sandworms. The cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, Jason Momoa and many others, with Denis Villenueve set to direct.
The story, as confirmed by Villenueve will be spread across 2 films due to the complexity of Frank Herbert’s complex world-building style.
I’m sure we’re all looking forward to seeing how Villenueve’s take on this sci-fi remake/adaptation will go. We’re just going to have to wait until next year.
