Denis Villeneuve‘s updated version of Dune secures a September 15 International release date

Dune‘, the updated version of Frank Herbert’s novel that was due to release back in December has seen its release shift once more. But this time, it’s actually moving to an earlier date. The film will now hit the screens internationally on September 15th, a move forward by two to three weeks. However, it is still listed as opening on October 1st in the United States both theatrically and on HBO MAX.

The film is the first part of a two-part adaptation of Herbert’s novel. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film toplines Timothee Chalamet in the lead role of Paul Atreides alongside Rebecca Ferguson as his mother, Lady Jessica. Oscar Issac stars as his father, Duke Leto Atreides, Stellan Skarsgard as the villainous Baron Harkonnen, Zendaya as Chani, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, and Javier Bardem as Stilgar.

This huge ensemble cast should bring the tale to the screen in some style. And with Villeneuve’s track record handling movies like this, the future looks extremely bright and fruitful. Especially for the tale of the dangerous spice mining operation on the distant planet of Arrakis. Also known as Dune, and the battle to control it. With giant spice worms to contend with on the surface of the planet, the film should be a visual feast for the audience.

‘Dune’ opens internationally on September 15th and on October 1st in the United States.
