To say the filmmakers only cared about money is a very cynical view. The article says they deemed it doing more harm than good delaying it further, maybe there were other factors involved we are not privy to.

The article says they deemed it doing more harm than good delaying it further, maybe there were other factors involved we are not privy to. Maybe Villeneuve got a good deal for greenlighting the sequel. Story might be a little more complex is all i'm saying.

Timing itself is reason enough to not delay, this movie gets a impactful 3 minutes trailer back in september 2020 [it have 36M views on WB channel alone only on youtube], pushing it further to 2022 would hurt it even more.

 

If movies like No Time To Die which is a strong franchise with fanbase already get hurted by so many time being delayed, imagine something like Dune which is far from consolidated.

 

If Warner indeed promise to Villeneuve that the movie only needs to do well on HBO Max and they will let him do the sequel no matter what box office it made, is way better to release now than delay again, losing more timing and depends on a good box office since next year there won´t be HBO Max.

This would've bombed even in normal conditions. It's just too artsy and slow-burn for general audiences to enjoy. I'm frankly shocked Warner and Legendary actually gave Denis such a big budget, especially considering it's just the first half of the book.

 

Anyone who thinks we're getting Part 2 is hopelessly naive. See you in 2058 when Netflix decides to take a crack at it.

Did you realize HBO Max already asked for a TV show right? 

 

They´re investing not only in movies but also in other projects for their streaming related to Dune, clearly they want to build this universe even if it doesn´t find huge audiences in the first movie, there´s always room to grow when you have such an intriguing world building being constructed, and also they already know this movie will never make enough money since their entire slate passed through the same, so they won´t see the underwhelming box office numbers and decide there won´t be another movie being made because of that alone.

 

Even variety say that clearly:

´´However, insiders say the HBO Max deal gives Villeneuve assurances that diminished box office revenues won’t prohibit him from having the chance to make his follow-up film. Other films that had a hybrid release still have sequel talks, with Warner Bros. looking to develop other installments in its “Mortal Kombat” universe.´´

well, it isn't cause it isn't even out yet. It starts rolling out in Europe and some other markets tomorrow so we'll see whether Team Bomb or Team Spice wins. Patience, young padawan. We will watch Dune's OS run with great interest.

Yep, it bascially prophesied the events of 2020.

It basically just took advantage of the rise in mental health issues we've had in the news for the past 5 years. It's a hot topic amongst the younger crowd which is why it seemed to do well with that demograph from what Ive seen.

 

TDK prophesied the events of 2020 for me. 'when the chips are down, these "civilised" people will eat each other', yeah people really showed their true colours during the bog roll outage in the UK.

Plus 8-10 oscars nominees are coming. It's basically the next Mad Max fury road

I didn't read just to avoid spoiler if any. But I doubt this qualify as socially relevant theme.

 

Dune has overt themes of:

 

Colonialism (more pronounced now with the native Fremen being POC)

Imperialism

Environmentalism

Feminism

Theocratic dictatorship

 

People keep comparing it to Star Wars on the space setting with high tech weaponry battles, but thematically it's more Fury Road meets Game of Thrones. House Atreides and House Stark parallels are strong. House Harkonnen is a mix of House Targaryen and Lannister.

Previews in France started in the last couple of hours in over 300 screens. Tomorrow the movie will be released in 950 screens (!)

 

according to this tweet they are doing good

 

translation: 

 

"judging by the row for the previews the film should be a success. Let's see if it also deserve it....."

Yeah it's definitely more game of thrones than Star Wars

"I haven't seen a movie theater so packed to the brim in years , even more in a movie theater that is usually uncrowded"

 

 

This is another screen in France

Some people here really underestimated this movie 😅. I don't know about the Us but here in continental Europe has been promoted as "the movie of the year" and the appeal is really multi target.

The Denis Villeneuve-directed adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 classic will be playing in just 24 markets this weekend, beginning offshore rollout tomorrow. Of the majors going this session are France, Germany, Russia, Italy and Spain. Our industry sources are projecting a launch in the mid-$20M range. PLFs will play a large part; IMAX is on about 150 screens.

 

Pandemic era comps to consider for Dune include Black Widow, while Villeneuve’s 2017 Blade Runner 2049 is also worth noting given the film’s pedigree and history. In like-for-like markets, and at today’s rates, those films opened to $22.8M and $24.4M, respectively.

 

 

Anticipation is high for Dune in Europe — and there’s a fair bit of rain washing across the continent over the coming days which is music to distribution and exhibition’s ears. Then again, the long runtime will impact the number of showings. Because the film only hits HBO Max on October 22, in line with the domestic release, piracy may be less of a concern — at least in terms of pristine copies.
