Just when you thought you’d missed your chance to experience Denis Villeneuve‘s “Dune” in IMAX, the legend returns. Announced earlier this morning, the science fiction epic will head back to IMAX theaters in December. It is no longer available to stream on HBO Max, but, David Lynch‘s 1984 version is! We know the physical release of 2021’s “Dune” is coming in January of 2022.
