Dune: Part Two Delayed a Month, New Godzilla Film Dated for 2024

Warner Bros. and Legendary are coming out with some new release dates as we head into the second half of 2022. When the pandemic happened and Warner Bros. announced all of their 2021 releases were going to be hybrid releases, for a moment, it looked like Legendary was going to file a lawsuit against the studio about it. It worked all right for the two major movies that got released, they both got greenlit for sequels, and Dune won a bunch of awards, but at the time, it was a massive thing. Dune: Part Two is going to shoot this year, but it sounds like Warner Bros., and Legendary will give director Denis Villeneuve a little extra time on the post-production as, according to Variety, the release date has moved from October 20, 2023, to November 17, 2023. Now it's opening the same day as the Hunger Games prequel and Trolls 3, which is interesting. We got word not that long ago that a sequel to Godzilla. vs. Kong was likely going to shoot later this year, and that unnamed sequel just snagged a March 15, 2024 release date.

Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' action-adventure "GODZILLA VS. KONG," a Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures release.

At the moment, Dune: Part Two is the last movie that is on the docket for this franchise, but after the Oscar wins and if this one does well, Legendary will probably greenlight more movies. Dune: The Sisterhood TV series is also still in the works as of March 2022. As for the next Godzilla movie, the fact that it's getting a sequel at all is a testament to the success of the hybrid model that Warner Bros. did in 2021. Godzilla vs. Kong nearly got sold to streaming but instead brought in a respectful amount of money at the box office, $470 million worldwide, considering it was still right at the worst of the pandemic.

Dune Summary: A mythic and emotionally charged hero's journey, "Dune" tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet's exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity's greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
