I'm down with this if it means a good box office and we get Part 2

if they delay it ten months and then cancel DUNC 2 I'll be loving pissed though

I don't believe theaters will survive that long. This holiday season dry-spell is going to kill them. Absolutely. And they won't get bailed out either. Or at least, nothing looks like congress will bail them out. Airlines get bailouts. Entertainment doesn't.

well why not posted:

COVID hasn't hit that hard here, wish they'd release it where cinemas are open.

It would bomb like Tenet bombed. They can't risk that again.

Folks are right that this isn't a mass market blockbuster, but it is absolutely the best film adaptation of Dune and I hope the rumors that HBO guaranteed Villeneuve that they'd let him do Part 2 are true.

At this point it would be the only way to get a second part, because the HD version leaked online a couple of days ago and there's still a few days until it comes to theaters/ HBO Max. Very sad.

wikipedia says box office receipts have already reached about 80% of the $165 million it cost to make

Usually you have to double it with marketing. Let's hope for the best.

Doesn't that depend a bit if we're playing with 'Covid rules' where a poo poo box office performance is gold?

Not really sure how much of that is just saving face for PR in the first place though.

Covid rules don't really change the budget, though.

I thought Timothy did kind of a lovely job as Paul. He just had this vacant, out to lunch look on this face the entire movie. Very monotone too.

I completely agree. He cries pretty because he is pretty, but he does not do a good job of displaying much more emotion than this.
