Warner Bros. has confirmed that the highly anticipated film adaptation of Dune will hit theaters and HBO Max on the same day as originally announced, and that day is still October 1, 2021.
The release status of this sci-fi epic was recently called into question when Deadline reported on May 17 that Warner Bros. cancels its decision to release Dune in theaters and streaming on the same day.
“Deadline learns that Denis Villeneuve’s acclaimed sci-fi remake of Dune, released this fall, will not adhere to the 2021 release schedule. Instead, it will premiere in Venice in September and then hit theaters for a while before hitting the HBO Max streaming service, ”the article said.
However, Johanna Fuentes, head of communications at Warner Media Studios and Networks Group, tweeted the same day and set the record.

Produced by Legendary Pictures and distributed by Warner Bros., the film is believed to be an adaptation of the first half of Frank Herbert’s first novel, Dune. The film is directed by Denis Villeneuve, who has already proven himself in the mind-blowing sequel to Blade Runner 2049, which is nothing more than epic – along with Arrival and Sicarrio, which are also phenomenal films.

Dune is the perfect franchise for Villeneuve to breathe new life into, and frankly, the cast exceeded our wildest expectations, including Timothy Chalamet (as Paul Atreides), Charlotte Rampling (Guy Mohiam’s Reverend Mother), Josh Brolin ( Gurney Halleck)), Jason Momoa (Duncan Idaho), Dave Bautista (Glossu ‘The Beast’ Rabban), Oscar Isaac (Duke of Leto Atreides), Javier Bardem (Stilgar), Zendaya (Chani), Rebecca Ferguson (Lady Jessica) andg Stellan Skala (Baron Vladimir Harkonnen).
The original release date was last December, and the decision to make it available on the streaming service HBO Max was not without controversy.
It’s also been eight months since we last saw the trailer, so with our fingers crossed we can get another tantalizing glimpse of Villeneuve’s interpretation of Arrakis, Caladan, Giedi Prime and everything else from Herbert’s universe set 20,000 years in the future. in 10 191 (Universal Standard Calendar) before the fall release date.
