DUNE: It Sounds Like Warner Bros. May Have Already Committed To PART 2

Dune hits U.S. theaters and the HBO Max streaming service today, and while we wait to see how the movie performs domestically, it sounds like Warner Bros. may have already committed to a sequel.

Denis Villeneuve's Dune is now playing in U.S. theaters and on HBO Max. The movie has been performing very well overseas up to this point and is expected to have a strong global opening weekend (domestic estimates are between $30M-$35M), but there's still a lot of uncertainly surrounding that all-important sequel.

Villeneuve has always seemed confident that he will get the opportunity to make Dune: Part 2, and previous reports have indicated that Warner Bros. gave the filmmaker certain assurances to convince him to agree to the day-and-date streaming release, meaning diminished box office returns wouldn't necessarily prohibit him from moving forward with a sequel.

Now, WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff has suggested that a follow-up may already be greenlit. “Will we have a sequel to Dune? If you watch the movie you see how it ends. I think you pretty much know the answer to that,” she told Deadline.

You might assume this stance could be subject to change if Dune greatly underperforms, but consider this: The Many Saints of Newark flopped, and Sarnoff also confirmed that talks are now underway with Sopranos creator David Chase about developing a spin-off series for HBO Max.

Do you guys plan on seeing Dune in the big screen? If you're still on the fence, check out our 5-star review here.
