Mere weeks after the film wrapped principal photography, we’re getting word that Warner Bros. has already bumped the release date for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune back. Originally slated for a November 20th, 2020 release, the film’s new release date is December 18th, 2020.
In general, delays in release dates are almost always a bad sign. This could mean producers feel the need for additional filming or edits, or that they are losing faith in Dune’s ability to put butts in seats. But there’s a chance this is simply a practical decision based on the studio’s internal analytics. So, no need to freak out, but this is something we’ll be keeping our eyes on!
Dune will star Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Stephen Henderson, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.
