Timothée Chalamet’s ‘Dune’ Will Reportedly Skip HBO Max Same Day Debut

The upcoming Dune remake starring Timothee Chalamet is reportedly moving back to an exclusive theatrical debut and will no longer stream on HBO Max when released in October.

When Warner Bros. first announced that Dune and the other 2021 films would have a simultaneous theatrical and HBO Max debut, many directors like Denis Villeneuve and Christopher Nolan voiced their displeasure with the decision. For Villeneuve, it’s because of his upcoming Dune film led by Timothee Chalamet that hopes to launch a franchise with a spin-off series already in development for the streamer.

Marvel Studios’ ‘Shang-Chi’ To Release Exclusively In Theaters

The United States is reaching a sense of normalcy with theaters reopening and new CDC guidelines for those who are vaccinated. Dune was originally going to hit theaters last Christmas, but the film is now set for October. According to Deadline, Timothee Chalamet’s Dune will no longer hit HBO Max when it comes out and will become a theater exclusive once again. Warner Bros. has also reached a deal with Regal to bring back 45-day theatrical windows in 2022.

Update: WarnerMedia’s Johanna Fuentes responded to the news on Twitter:

Are you bummed Dune will no longer be available on HBO Max right away? Let us know in the comments section below!

A synopsis of Dune reads as follows:

Set in the distant future, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides whose family accepts control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, control of Arrakis is highly contested among the noble families. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship to nature as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s control of Arrakis.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts, Dune stars Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlotte Rampling, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.

‘F9’ Featurette Goes Back to When the Franchise Took Things a Quarter Mile at a Time

Remember the early days of the Fast and Furious franchise, back when all they did was race cars and live life a quarter mile at a time? We barely do too, but Universal is here to remind us of the good old days with a new F9 featurette, which takes us back to the beginning.

‘F9’ Featurette Goes Back to When the Franchise Took Things a Quarter Mile at a Time

Remember the early days of the Fast and Furious franchise, back when all they did was race cars and live life a quarter mile at a time? We barely do too, but Universal is here to remind us of the good old days with a new F9 featurette, which takes us back to the beginning.

F9 Featurette: The Originals

Compiling interview clips and behind-the-scenes footage from the early Fast and Furious movies, the newest F9 featurette shows us the stark difference between the beginning and the almost-end of the franchise. Remember the long hair of the early 2000s? The smaller stakes? The puka shell necklaces? There’s something sweetly nostalgic about seeing footage from these earlier Fast and Furious movies, especially the cast members who have gone, like the since-passed Paul Walker.

But F9 introduces a new member of the family in the form of John Cena as Dom’s estranged (and evil!) brother, Jakob, who is on a mission of revenge against Dom. This forces Dom and his wife, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), out of retirement and back into life in the fast lane. F9 sees the return of many other favorite and not-so-favorite characters, with an ensemble that includes Tyrese GibsonChris “Ludacris” BridgesJordana BrewsterNathalie EmmanuelHelen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. And of course, there’s justice to be served with Sung Kang‘s Han.

Here’s the official synopsis for F9:

Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, the upcoming The Suicide Squad).

F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.

F9 opens in theaters on June 25, 2021.
