Dune Part Two release postponed to 2024 as actors strike lingers | Hollywood News


The release of Dune: Part Two, one of the fall’s most anticipated films, has been postponed from November until next year, Warner Bros. confirmed Thursday.

Denis Villeneuve’s science-fiction sequel had been set to open November 3, but will instead land in theaters March 15 next year. With the actors strike entering its second month, Dune: Part Two had been rumored to be eyeing a move. Variety earlier this month reported Warner Bros. was mulling the delay.

Warner Bros. is opting to wait until its starry cast can promote the follow-up to the 2021 Oscar-winning Dune. Part Two stars Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgård, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh and Léa Seydoux.

Dune: Part Two is one of the biggest 2023 films yet postponed due to the ongoing strikes by actors and screenwriters. Recent releases have mostly opted to go ahead, despite lacking their stars on red carpets or on magazine covers. SAG-AFTRA has asked its members not to promote studio films during the work stoppage.
