The Dune HBO XD.
- Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi masterpiece Dune will reportedly return to HBO Max soon after its successful theatrical and streaming run during the COVID-19 epidemic.
This adaptation of Frank Herbet’s classic 1965 novel Dune follows an Atreides family adopting the responsibility of stewarding Arrakis (commonly known as Dune), a treacherous desert planet that has an extremely precious mineral known as “spice.” Dune aired on HBO Max the same day as its theatrical release, although the picture was only available to watch for 30 days on the channel as part of Warner Bros.’ hybrid plan for its 2021 projected releases.
- In a recent interview, actor Josh Brolin expressed his disappointment at Denis Villeneuve’s Dune being overlooked for an Academy Award.
Now successfully making over $400 million globally along with being a critical success (as Dune has gotten 10 Academy Award Nominations), it appears that the film is coming to HBO MAX before of the major award ceremony. Ahead of this year’s Oscar nominations, Dune is set to return to Netflix on March 10, according to a report from Hidden Report. PVOD services like Apple TV, Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play, and YouTube have made the video available for rent or purchase.

Villeneuve and many other directors were unhappy to the first decision to stream the film for only 30 days, so it’s nice to see it back to HBO Max for a longer amount of time. Villeneuve, on the other hand, said that Dune’s HBO Max release was a mistake. As a result of Villeneuve’s opposition to a hybrid production style, the filmmaker appears to have a strong relationship with the studio, as he is preparing to begin filming Dune: Part Two in July 2022, just weeks after Dune was released. Second half of the storey focuses mainly on House Harkonnen, a violent, desert-dwelling tribe, and the local desert people known as the Fremen. Dune: Part 2 will be a lot of fun, says Villeneuve, as the first film focused on world-building and setting up various characters and their storey arcs. More information on Dune: Part 2 will be released when the film’s development gets closer. In the meantime, they can return to the Dune universe. Stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson and Oscar Isaac appear in the picture, as does Zendaya, Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem in supporting roles. Baron Harkonnen is portrayed by Stellan Skarsgrd, while the Duke Leto Atreides is played by Oscar Isaac.
