Warner Bros. has announced the release dates for two of its upcoming anticipated movies. The untitled Elvis Presley biopic starring Austin Butler and directed by Oscar nominee Baz Luhrmann (The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet) is set to hit theatres on October 1, 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Warner Bros. also shared a brief plot description for the film, stating it will "delve into their complex dynamic spanning over 20 years, from Presley's rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and the loss of innocence in America."
Butler stars in the movie opposite Tom Hanks who plays Elvis' longtime manager Colonel Tom Parker.
The other date that Warner Bros. announced was for the Dune reboot. The movie has shifted from November 2020 to December 18, 2020. The sci-fi film is directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario, Blade Runner 2049) and stars lots of famous people such as Josh Brolin, Timothee Chalamet, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Rebecca Ferguson, Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac, and Charlotte Rampling, among others.
The December 18, 2020 date is a busy one. The Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland also arrives in theatres that day, as does the Coming to America sequel with Eddie Murphy and Steven Spielberg's West Side Story.
Finally, Warner Bros. announced that an untitled "event" film will release on November 20, 2020, but there is no word on what it is.
