The spice must flow at a later date. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ Dune: Part Two is no longer premiering on November 3, 2023. Read on to find out the new premiere slot for the Denis Villeneuve-helmed sci-fi flick.
Here’s a synopsis for the Dune sequel per Warner Bros. MediaPass:
“Dune: Part Two will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.”
“Part Two is an epic war movie, much more dense. We visited Arrakis. We visit new locations; everything is new in the film. In the first movie, we shot 40% in Imax — this time, it’s full Imax.”
“She’s not just in dreams this time. I only got a small time to find out who she was [in Part One]. … These are still two young people who are trying to grow up, fall in love and leave, being a warrior for your people.”
Besides Chalamet and Zendaya, Dune: Part Two also stars Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, Léa Seydoux, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Charlotte Rampling, Stephen McKinley Henderson and Tim Blake Nelson. Villeneuve directs the movie from a script he wrote with Jon Spaihts. It’s adapted from the 1965 Frank Herbert novel of the same name.
Alright, hold onto your butts, folks, … Dune: Part Two will now debut on March 15, 2024, in theaters and IMAX.
