Dune: Part 2 has been delayed until next year due to the ongoing cast strike in Hollywood. After much deliberation, the highly anticipated sci-fi sequel starring Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya has been pushed back from its original November 3 date to March 15, 2024. The realignment of Warner Bros. and Legendary also caused them to delay Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire — the latest entry in the MonsterVerse franchise — nearly a month earlier, from March 15, 2024. from 12 April to 12 April. A “Dune” sequel will also be released in IMAX, and sooner. Report Note that supported screens will show the film continuously for up to six weeks.

Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune: Part 2’ becomes biggest casualty of SAG-AFTRA strike for show’s star cast – including Chalamet, Zendaya, Florence Pugh and Rebecca Ferguson, among others — will be barred from any publicity duties or film interviews. A lack of actors or potential nominees also poses a challenge for awards events, which is why the Emmys have also been delayed. The first “Dune” movie picked up six Oscars and has become one of the biggest films of the pandemic, taking in $402 million (Rs 3,323 crore) at the global box office. Given its potential to create a Star Wars-like franchise, it makes sense for Warner Bros. and Legendary to delay the release.

However, by pushing back the release date to March 15, Warner Bros. is putting itself in a difficult position by spoiling another major release for the studio. Oscar-winning filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s Mickey 17 starring Robert Pattinson is currently scheduled for release in two weeks, on March 29, 2024. This could have a negative impact on their box office numbers, as Parasite’s sweep of the 2019 Oscars is bound to affect their box office numbers. Now let more people pay attention to Bong Joon Ho’s movies. Maybe we could see a repeat of the “Pappenheimer” magic, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that movie gets delayed as well.

Regardless of the strike, however, the company has chosen to stick to those dates.So, another film starring Chalamet Wonka Coming December 15, DC Comics’ Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom on December 20, and The Color Purple on Christmas Day.according to The Hollywood Reporter Warner Bros. is still committed to a theatrical release, sources said, even amid the uncertainty of a double Hollywood strike organized by the Writers Guild of America and the aforementioned Screen Actors Guild.
