Dune: Part Two changes its release date once again

The eagerly awaited Dune: Part Two by Denis Villeneuve has yet another postponed release date. The new date for the sci-fi sequel’s release is March 1, 2024. The forthcoming space fiction epic will now premiere in March, competing against the Blumhouse horror film Imaginary and the animated Kung Fu Panda 4 sequel.

The movie’s original release date was last month, but once again it has been delayed. In order to escape the now-completed SAG-AFTRA strike, which would have prevented the film’s glittering constellation of stars, including Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, and Florence Pugh, from marketing it, it was most recently pushed back to March 15. But now that the strikes have ended, the movie is prepared to step up its marketing once more.

It is possible that Villeneuve’s exploits in the Dune universe will continue beyond Dune: Part Two. He has plans to adapt Herbert’s surreal follow-up novel, Dune: Messiah, after Dune: Part Two. Not only that, but Max is working on a prequel trilogy that takes place 10,000 years before Dune and shows how the cunning Bene Gesserit sisterhood came to be. After various development alterations, it is now called Dune: Prophecy and is expected to be released in the fall of 2019.

On March 1, 2024, Dune: Part Two will be released in theaters for now.

The second part of Frank Herbert’s ground-breaking science fiction novel Dune, published in 1965, will be adapted as Dune: Part Two. The sequel will pick up with Paul and Jessica establishing new lives among the nomadic, desert-dwelling Fremen of Arakkis, following the events of the first movie, when the despotic Harkonnens reclaimed the spice-rich planet Arrakis from House Atreides, killing patriarch Duke Leto (Oscar Isaac) and sending his wife Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) and son Paul (Chalamet) into exile.
