Breaking! Dune 2 release date gets delayed due to the Hollywood strike. Yes, you heard it right. The highly anticipated sci-fi tentpole of Warner Bros Film Group and Legendary Entertainment, Dune 2, has shifted its release plan to the next year. At current, the Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya starrer Dune 2 will be released on March 15, 2024, instead of November 3, 2024. Reason? The ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike has led the Dune 2 production companies to change their Dune 2 release date.
Earlier, the production groups were a bit hesitant about shifting the Dune 2 release, knowing that their film’s actors could not participate in the Dune 2’s promotions and not be involved in press conferences; they had to say ‘Yes’ to the decision.
Due to this shift caused by the ongoing actors’ strike, Warner Bros Group has shifted their next film, Godzilla X Kong release, to the next month. This means Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire, originally scheduled for March 14, 2024, will now hit theatres on April 12, 2024, to avoid competition.
However, the Dune 2 release date change has not affected its IMAX screening availability. Thankfully, we will get an immersive experience with Dune 2, as we hoped.
Apart from Timothee Chalamet and Spider-Man fame Zendaya, other ensemble cast that we will see in Dune 2 are Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Dave Bautista, Christopher Walken, Stephen McKinley, Ley Seydoux, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlott Rampling, Javier Bardem, Souheila Yacoub, and Tim Blake Nelson.
The film is helmed by Denis Villeneuve for a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts. Dune Part Two will explode in cinemas on 15 March 2024. Mark the date in your calendars until and unless you watch the Dune 2 trailer here.
