'Dune' Will Debut in Theaters & on HBO Max at the Same Time, Despite Conflicting Reports

There seems to be some Dune confusion!

Following a report that the highly anticipated sci-fi epic will make its debut at the 2021 Venice Film Festival in September before an exclusive theatrical release on October 1, Warner Bros. execs are now insisting that the movie will open at the same time as HBO Max.

In the Deadline report a day before, it was reported that Dune would not be adhering to the same-day release pattern that the studio was implementing for its film slate in 2021, instead coming to theaters before the streaming platform.

Warner’s Johanna Fuentes clarified a day later in a social media post.

Dune will premiere in theaters and on HBO Max on the same day in the U.S,” she confirmed.

Warner Bros. distribution chief Jeff Goldstein also said there was “no change” to the October 1 release date for Dune.

There was talk earlier in the year on how Denis Villanueve‘s remake of the iconic film could escape the streaming deal.

Dune is based on the book from Frank Herbert, and centers on Paul Atreides as he leads nomadic tribes in a battle to control the desert planet Arrakis.
