Should you watch 'Dune' in theatres or on HBO Max? Check out these reactions from the Venice Film Festival and decide for yourself.

When is ‘Dune’ going to drop on HBO Max?

Warner Brothers, due to the pandemic, came up with a pretty solid strategy to get a handle on the revenue loss from COVID-19. For their 2021 release slate, they would be simultaneously releasing movies both in theatres and on HBO Max. The movies were still seen, profits were being made (HBO Max is $14.99 per month), and people didn’t have to worry about COVID. The next big movie for the app is Dune.

The film, based on the 1965 novel of the same name, stars Timothée Chalamet & Zendaya in a sci-fi epic adventure. It premiered at the Venice Film Festival to rave reviews from critics. (Though, uh, maybe do some reading on the more problematic aspects of Dune before deciding if you want to watch it on HBO Max.) The film is currently slated for release on Oct. 22. 

But where should you watch Dune? Should you check it out in theatres or tune in on HBO Max? We’re going to take a look at what the critics have to say about the movie so you can decide.
