Did you miss out on paying a trip to Arrakis in IMAX? If so, you’re in luck, as Dune will be back on IMAX screens, at least in the US.
According to Deadline, the Denis Villeneuve directed epic will be back on IMAX screens from December 3. Dune was controversially given a simultaneous theatrical release, as well as premiering on HBO Max in the US.
Despite that, the film has done very well at the box office, as it is expected to pull in $100m Stateside. Considering the film came out during a pandemic, that’s not a bad amount of money, and the sequel is already in the works.
