'Dune' to Release One Day Early on HBO Max


Dune is officially releasing a day early on HBO Max.

According to reports, Denis Villenueve’s adaptation will be premiering on the streaming platform on October 21 instead of October 22 — the film’s actual release date in the U.S. HBO Max will release Dune on the same day as the preview screenings in theaters, allowing subscribers to watch the sci-fi epic just as early as moviegoers. It will be available on the service for 30 days, similar to other Warner Bros. films.

The Timotheé Chalamet-starring film raked in $36.8 million USD at the global office within the first 24 hours of its premiere in September.

Speaking to Total Film earlier this year, Villenueve shared that he is writing the second Dune film despite it not receiving the green light yet. “I’m writing [Part Two] now, and I feel like I’m eight years old again,” he said. “That’s very uncommon for me. It’s the first time I’ve experienced it where I’m watching one of my movies, and I have a moment of deep gratitude, of deep joy, and I say, ‘Thank you, life, for having allowed me to bring that to the screen.’ [laughs] I don’t know how other people will feel about it. But me? Denis Villeneuve when he was 14 years old? Thank you.”

Dune premieres on HBO Max on October 21 at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.
