“Dune” will be releasing day-and-date on HBO Max

Following a report that the highly anticipated sci-fi epic will make its debut at the 2021 Venice Film Festival in September before an exclusive theatrical release on October 1, Warner Bros. execs are now insisting that the movie will open at the same time as HBO Max.

In the Deadline report a day before, it was reported that Dune would not be adhering to the same-day release pattern that the studio was implementing for its film slate in 2021, instead coming to theaters before the streaming platform.

Warner’s Johanna Fuentes clarified a day later in a social media post.

Dune will premiere in theaters and on HBO Max on the same day in the U.S,” she confirmed.
