Fans of the sci-fi behemoth 'Dune' will have to wait another month as the release date of the much-anticipated sequel has been delayed.

Warner Bros. have announced that the film, alongside the new 'Godzilla vs. Kong' project have been subject to flight delays.

The new release date is now November 17, a push back of nearly a month from the original date of October 20.

The new release date will mean the sequel will go up against the new 'Hunger Games' film 'The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes' at the box office.

Based on the 1965 book by Frank Herbert, 'Dune' released in October 2021 and grossed nearly $400 million globally. It picked up 10 Oscar nominations, including nods for best picture and best adapted screenplay.

Director Denis Villeneuve recently said the sequel "will be more challenging. But we know where we are stepping, and the screenplay is written, so I feel confident."

Christopher Walken was recently cast as Shaddam IV, the Padishah Emperor of the Known Universe. Florence Pugh and Austin Butler are also joining the main cast.

Pugh will play the Emperor’s daughter Princess Irulan. Butler is confirmed for the role of Feyd-Rautha, the Baron's nephew. Timothy Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya and Javier Bardem are also returning for the sequel.

'Dune: Part Two' releases in cinemas on November 17, 2023.
