Dune (2021 Movie)

Dune ( Part One) is an upcoming Yankee epic science fiction movie directed by Denis Villeneuve with a screenplay by Jon Spaihts, Villeneuve, and Eric Roth. It is the first of a planned two-part adaptation of the 1965 novel of the same name by Frank Herbert, which will cover the first half of the book.

Dune is scheduled to premiere at the 78th Venice International Movie Festival on September 3, 2021, and released theatrically in the United States in 3D on October 22, 2021, by Warner Bros. Pictures with the asynchronous release on the HBO Max streaming set for 31 days.

Dune(2021) Release Date

Dune was supposed to come out on November 20, 2020, however, it was postponed until December 18, 2020. The film was subsequently postponed again owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, this time to October 1, 2021, taking over the spot previously occupied by The Batman, and will be released in 3D in theaters. Warner Bros. started in late June 2021 that the film would be delayed by three weeks, to October 22, 2021, to avoid competing with No Time to Die. International theatrical releases will begin in mid-September 2021, more than a month ahead of the domestic North American release date.

Dune, along with all of Warner Bros.’ other planned 2021 films, will be streamed simultaneously on HBO Max for a month, after which it will be removed until the standard home media release timetable period, similar to Warner Bros.’ distribution pattern for Wonder Woman 1984. Several directors, as well as movie theater chains and production companies (including Legendary Entertainment, the film’s producer and financier), expressed their disappointment with the decision.

On September 3, 2021, Dune made its world premiere at the 78th Venice International Film Festival. At the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival, the film will have an IMAX world debut at the Cinesphere.

Dune(2021) Production


Dune was identified as a potential film project shortly after its release in 1965, and many companies have had the rights to adapt the novel to cinema since 1971. Multiple attempts have been attempted to make such a film, and it is widely regarded as a difficult work to translate to the screen due to its depth of substance. In the 1970s, filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky famously obtained the rights to make a lavish fourteen-hour adaptation of the novel, but the project fell through. The film’s production was later recorded in a documentary film.

Dune, directed by Jodorowsky, was released in 2013. Prior to this film, there were two independent live-action adaptations: 1984’s Dune, directed by David Lynch and produced by Raffaella De Laurentiis, and a 2000 Sci-Fi Channel miniseries produced by Richard P. Rubinstein, who had controlled the Dune film rights since 1996.

In 2008, Paramount Pictures stated that they were working on a new feature film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune, which will be directed by Peter Berg. Berg quit the film in October 2009, and director Pierre Morel was hired in January 2010 to take over as director, before Paramount withdrew the movie in March 2011 due to a lack of critical agreements, and their rights reverted to Rubinstein.
