Dune: Part Two Delayed to 2024 Amid Strike

Dune: Part Two Delayed to 2024 Amid Strike

The WGA and SAG AFTRA Strike rages on, and while some studio heads may be content with waiting for the writers and actors to run out of steam, it looks like the industry has just taken one massive blow with a delay of one of the biggest movies of the year.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two has been moved from its November release date to March 15, 2024. This has also caused the studio to push back several other films including Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire as well as the animated Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim.

Suprisingly, the studio is still keeping their releases set for December which includes movies like The Color Purple, Wonka, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

Actors for Dune: Part Two were expected to start promotion next month, but seeing that the strike still has no end in sight, it looks like the studios don’t want to risk the marketing of the film—which is half the battle. Some actually speculate that part of The Flash’s poor reception and hype was because star Ezra Miller wasn’t allowed to do any of the press; and the only thing audiences were hearing about them online were their altercations in Hawaii.

With Dune: Part Two having a star-studded cast which includes Zendaya, Timothee Chalamet, Javier Bardem, Austin Butler, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Lea Seydoux, and more, the studio may not want to waste all that star power when it comes to the promotion of their big-budget sci-fi epic.

Watch out for Dune: Part Two when it comes out March 15, 2024.
