Warner Bros. and Legendary are continuing to promote Dune as we head into the final two months or so before the movie gets released. The next couple of weeks are really going to be the thing that will define the fall movie season and whether or not a movie like Dune is going to be able to make any sort of mark on the box office. So far, Free Guy has performed fairly well, but it will be movies Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings that is really going to show whether or not there is any interest in returning to the big screen. Studios seemed pretty confident that the worst was behind them last week at CinemaCon, but that optimism could be misplaced. IMAX has released a pretty new poster for Dune, and this one is at least better than the generic one that was released earlier this month.
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.
