Dune – December 18th, 2020 (Post-Production)
Dune, Frank Herbert’s massive tome of a novel, hasn’t found the easiest filmmaking processes. There’s even a whole documentary about one famous filmmaker’s failed attempt to bring it to the silver screen. David Lynch succeeded — if to mixed results — with his 1984 film, but now Denis Villeneuve will make an admirable attempt to bring Herbert’s words to the screen.
With an all-star cast that includes Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgard, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, and Charlotte Rampling in addition to Zendaya, Dune is set to be another enormous blockbuster from the revered director, though it’s hard to know if we’ll actually get a chance to see it this year. While we got our first glimpse at footage courtesy of an intriguing new trailer, the movie’s release date, December 18th, is tentative in a fluid release calendar.
