Dune 2021 release date

The upcoming blockbuster release about the unknown, wild, and absolutely terrifying things is almost here. Get ready for some suspense, some drama, and a lot of thrill. 2021 offers a list of very exciting movies to chose from. For example, one of the very recent developments is the release of a bunch of psychological thrillers and horror movies. The first half of the year is full of so many movies from the psychological and thrilling background. Movies like The Conjuring Part 3, The Little Things, and so on, are all about to premiere. The hype around all these films is huge, that too, because of the plotline and a great production team. However, we can find very little science fiction over here. To break the order and bring in something out of the blue, Dune is here. Dune will meet all the expectations and hit it just right. Exactly what we love and what we like to see.

One of the most important things to notice here is the choice of characters and cast members. The way this movie is set up, we have a lot of new things to see which have never been done before. For example, recently, there has been seeing a lot of craziness over Timothee Chalamet! If you have not watched the trailer yet, you can have a look at it right on Youtube.

Dune: Storyline Details

Dune is the planet also known as Arrakis. Now this movie is a novel by Frank Herbert. The plotline is pretty simple and sweet but has a lot of internal politics that the characters must deal with all by themselves. “The Spice” is a drug that is only available on this planet. Now, why is this in high demand? Because it can extend human life! Great! But who will risk their lives to go to this planet and bring the spice? Dune is not all that habitable and safe because of its massive sandstorms.

Duke Leto Atreides is the one who will accept the stewardship and go to the planet Dune to do this dangerous task. However, he is not going alone. He takes his son Paul (Timothee), Lady Jessica, and some of the most trusted members along with him. And soon enough, after a dirty betrayal, they land up in the deserts of Dune, where the natives reside. Watch the movie to find out what happens next!

Dune: Cast Members And Characters 

We all are pretty excited about this part of the movie, especially for Zendaya and Timothee Chalamet. Zendaya has been famous for movies and her overall social media influencer role for as long as I can remember. As a child, I always admired Zendya and her wonderfully played roles in Disney movies. I think she is the favorite character from Disney for most people. Also, she is known to have been in movies with the greatest actor crushes of teenage girls! Count in Tom Holland, Zac Effron, and some other more. And now she is doing another one with this famous tee boy- Timothee! Timothee gained his fame from ‘It,’ as far as I recall. that was not too long ago, but puberty hit him so hard that it just made him more appealing and attractive. I hope you are prepared to see these young talents on the big screen!

Apart from our two stars, who are also one of the main characters, we have other people playing some really important roles in the movie too. For example, we have Rebecca Ferguson, the Swedish actress who is known for her mission impossible series and also Men In Black. Remember Ladybird? Stephen McKinley Henderson played wonderfully in that one! Let’s have a look at the cast list. It might look small but believe me; we will probably have some surprise cast members when we watch the movie.

We have Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Stephen McKinley Henderson as Thufir Hawat, Zendaya as Chani, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Stellan Skarsgård as Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, Dave Bautista as Glossu Rabban, David Dastmalchian as Piter De Vries, Chang Chen as Dr. Wellington Yueh, Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Dr. Liet-Kynes, Charlotte Rampling as Gaius Helen Mohiam, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Javier Bardem as Stilgar.

Dune Release Date: When can we expect the film?

The release date of Dune, like most other movies, was delayed in the past because of coronavirus. I must agree to this. However, they should still be taking all the necessary precautions while releasing the movie. They first planned to make the movie four years ago, in early 2016. Then what made them wait so long? The visual supervisor and the director of photography dipped out in 2018, and that was later on taken care of. All this took quite a while as some of the crew members kept changing and ended with the Game of Thrones language developer being hired to work for the production of Dune in late 2018.

The filming did not begin until late 2019. Surprising yet true. The first release date that came out was on November 1, 2020. Then once again, the situation pushed it back to December 2020. I guess the work was yet incomplete; therefore, they decided to finally give it more time than required so that they don’t have to push it back any further unless required. Now the movie is set to be out on October 1, 2021. That is the final release date. Let’s just hope that it does not face any other delay.
