After a successful run in theaters and on HBO Max, the latest adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic science fiction novel will come to physical media on January 11th, 2022.
Warner Brothers today officially announced Denis Villeneuve's 2021 adaptation of Dune for Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD Bluy-ray - with a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook. As of now we expect the base HDR10 grading - no word on Dolby Vision or HDR10+, but both the 4K disc and 1080p Blu-ray will have English Atmos audio tracks with the same set of bonus features.
The 4K and Blu-ray releases are expected to include the following bonus features:
At the moment, neither the standard 4K disc, the Best Buy SteelBook, or standard Blu-ray are up for pre-order but in the coming days, we expect that to change. As soon as we get that info we'll update our listings ASAP.
Thanks again for your pre-orders! They really do go a long way towards helping our little operation stay up and running.
Here is the full press release from Warner Bros.
“An astonishingly vivid vision of the future.”
