Dune Part Two Delayed 2024 Hollywood Strikes

Dune: Part Two Delayed to 2024 Amidst Hollywood Strikes

Dune: Part Two, the follow-up to 2021’s sci-fi epic Dune from director Denis Villeneuve, has officially been delayed from 3 November this year to an unspecified release date in 2024. The delay arrives in the midst of the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes currently taking place in Hollywood demanding fair wages and payments for industry workers. Warner Bros. has also delayed Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire by a month.

As reported by Variety, Dune: Part Two will no longer release on its original 3 November date as planned. Instead, Warner Bros. has decided to push the movie to sometime next year. Additionally, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, the sequel to 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, will now release on 12 April 2024 instead of its originally planned release in March.

Warner Bros. began marketing Dune: Part Two earlier this year with the initial goal of releasing it this November, including one awesome trailer featuring the sandworms. However, fans will have to wait a bit longer to catch the movie in cinemas.

As a result of the Hollywood strikes, we can expect more movies to be delayed in the coming months. Hollywood began exploring AI to replace writers during the strike, leading the actors union SAG-AFTRA to band together with the Writer’s Guild and bring the industry to a screeching halt. Part of it was due to Hollywood executives unfairly using AI to generate the appearance of background actors so they won’t get paid for future projects along with using the tech to generate movie and TV scripts, though most of it boils down to demanding fair wages across all professions in the industry.

Executives apparently want to prolong the strike as much as possible with the plan of letting the striking writers “go broke” before they consider opening up negotiations – a truly vile and inhumane thing to do.
