Warners Delays “Dune,” Dates Baz’s Elvis Film

Scribe Eric Roth Talks Dune Flower Moon

Warner Bros. Pictures has delayed Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” by a full month – from November 20th 2020 to December 18th 2020, in the process the film is also getting an IMAX release.

That’s one of several release date announcements today, and Warners isn’t giving up that old November date either, the studio intending to hold onto it for an untitled release. In its new December slot, “Dune” will go up against Sony’s planned “Uncharted” film, Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” and the long-awaited “Coming to America” sequel.

Warners has also marked aside an October 1st 2021 release for Baz Luhrmann’s buzzed-about untitled Elvis Presley feature starring Tom Hanks and Austin Butler. That project will shoot early next year in Queensland, Australia.

Over at STXfilms, the studio has pushed back the date of the animated feature “Playmobil” from August 30th to December 6th, have rescheduled the Dave Bautista-starrer “My Spy” for a January 10th 2020 opening, and added Guy Ritchie’s “The Gentlemen” to its release slate with a January 24th 2020 opening. The latter stars Matthew McConaughey, Henry Golding, Hugh Grant and Colin Farrell.
