Denis Villeneueve’s remove on the iconic sci-fi myth changed into as soon as supposed to release on December 18, but with COVID-19 peaceable a tangible threat, it be been pushed to October 1, 2021. With Warner Bros. no longer too long previously interesting Shock Girl 1984 to Christmas Day (for now), it be likely that the corporate moved Dune on legend of it believed the unsteady market couldn’t beef up two blockbusters releasing so terminate together. Dune takes The Batman‘s release slot, with Robert Pattinson’s Batflick getting pushed to 2022.

This shall be a critical bummer for all of us Dune Heads available, as Villeneueve’s remove looks to be poised to loyally honor Frank Herbert’s masterpiece whereas boasting a critical person-studded forged including Timothée Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, and Stellan Skarsgård. I point out, heck, the Dune trailer had me fully salivating, which the Fremen would remove into legend a end of precious water.

Request the dates on this checklist to alternate, but right here’s the most appealing upcoming movies of 2020 and beyond.
