Timothee Chalamet starrer “Dune” gets a release date

After being delayed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this epic science fiction movie finally gets a release date. Let us see what this is all about.

“Dune” is an epic science fiction movie that is directed by Denis Villeneuve and is based on the 1965 novel of the same name. This first movie will cover the first half of the book, so we might get a sequel too. According to the sources, the movie tells the story of Duke Leto Atreides, who travels to a desert planet called Arrakis or Dune, to take a drug called melange that provides superhuman thoughts and makes faster than light travel possible.

Last year on September, the first trailer of the movie was released, but the release date was not revealed in it. The movie was originally scheduled to be released back on November 20, 2020, and was later pushed back to 18th December 2020. As it is a big budget movie, the makers definitely did not want to release it in the OTT platforms like other movies. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the release has been affected since a long time, but now the movie is all scheduled to be released on 22nd October 2021.

The movie features an ensemble cast including Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem, etc.

On 19th July, the official posters of the movie was posted on the official Instagram page of the movie. The poster was for the eight main characters and the actors included Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgard, Zendaya, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem.

Fans are really excited to see Chalamet and Zendaya together in the same movie, as they both are one of the most loved actors of this generation.

While Zendaya has given stellar performances in shows and movies like Spider-Man: Homecoming, K.C. Undercover, Shake It Up, Euphoria, Malcolm and Marie, etc. She also won the Primetime Emmy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her character of Rue Bennett in the HBO series Euphoria. She was last seen voicing the character of Lola Bunny in Space Jam: A New Legacy.

Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, alongside Jason Momoa, commented under his post writing:

Looks like our Khaleesi is really excited to see her Khal Drogo on the big screen.
We really hope the movie does not disappoint us as we have waited for a long time.
