Dune's not-so-upcoming reboot has become the latest major blockbuster to have its release date delayed.
The Denis Villeneuve film has now has been pushed back to late 2021 (via Variety), meaning cinema-goers will have to wait almost another whole year to see Timothée Chalamet and his pet sand worm.
The movie, which also stars Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Jason Momoa, Stellan Skarsgård and Javier Bardem, was previously aiming for a December 18, 2020 release.
Dune is now expected to arrive in cinemas on October 1, 2021, which happens to be release date of Matt Reeves' The Batman.
So unless you think Warner Bros is likely to release both films on the same day, you can probably expect The Batman's release date to change, too.
More to follow.
Dune is set to premiere on October 1, 2021.
