Warner Bros. hasn't officially confirmed the following but Deadline is reporting that the release of Legendary’s Dune is no longer going on December 18th, rather October 1st, 2021. This is also the same release date for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Sources are figuring that Warner Bros. will be officially setting a new release date for this feature as well. The first reason for the release changes are that Warrner Bros. didn't want two major tentpoles –one a franchise starter, the other a franchise sequel– within days of each other, especially with Wonder Woman 1984 still set for Christmas Day. The second reason comes with the news of Cineworld and Regal closing.
Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049”) directs Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Dune,” the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name.

Cast: Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Stellan Skarsgard, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem Director: Denis Villeneuve The film is slated to be released in theaters on December 18, 2020.
While not a lot of specific details have been made available, McFarlane Toys has announced that they have obtained the rights to make product based on the upcoming Denis Villeneuve’s Dune movie coming in December from Warner Bros. What is not entirely clear is if McFarlane can, or has any plans to also release product based on the original 1984 movie. Even if the license allows them to make product based on the original Dune movie, my guess they will primarily focus on the new one. At least starting out. We will update this story when more details become available.
