It could take longer than planned to return to the arid planet of Arrakis.
The second installment of the Warner Bros. and Legendary sci-fi epic “Dune: Part Two” has been delayed and will now debut in theaters on November 17, 2023, rather than October 20, 2023.
The “Dune” follow-up is slated to debut in cinemas on its updated premiere schedule, together with Universal’s “Trolls 3” and Lionsgate’s “Hunger Games” prequel: “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.”
The unnamed “Godzilla vs. Kong” movie will be premiered on March 15, 2024, according to a statement from Warner Bros. and Legendary, co-producers of “Dune” and other popular series.
Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, and Christopher Walken are expected to join the cast of “Dune: Part Two,” which also sees the comeback of Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Josh Brolin, and Javier Bardem. Later this year, the “Dune” follow-up, which continues the 2nd half of Frank Herbert’s iconic book, is anticipated to begin production under the direction of Denis Villeneuve.
Being among the rare accomplishments of Warner Bros.’ experimental hybrid release plan, which saw its 2021 slate land concurrently on HBO Max, the first “Dune” brought in $400 million globally. A commercial and critical success, “Dune” received 10 Academy award nominations, winning for sound, visual effects, and four other categories.
Following his successful direction of the most recent otherworldly blockbuster to COVID-era glory, “Godzilla vs. Kong” producer Adam Wingard returns to helm the upcoming Godzilla and King Kong monster clash. During a period when a number of movie theaters were still closed due to Covid-19, his movie “Godzilla vs. Kong” made $474 million worldwide at the box office while making its day-and-date HBO Max debut.
The forthcoming controversy involving Godzilla and King Kong is currently unknown. It will be the fifth entry in the monster franchise created by Warner Bros. and Legendary after “Godzilla” in 2014, “Kong: Skull Island” in 2017, “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” in 2019 and “Godzilla vs. Kong” in 2021.
There are no details available for Godzilla and King Kong’s upcoming brouhaha. It will mark the fifth installment in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s monster universe following 2014’s “Godzilla,” 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island,” 2019’s “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” and 2021’s “Godzilla vs. Kong.”
