Spice fans looking forward to the release of the new Dune movie have been dealt some bad news, as the release date for Denis Villeneuve’s new adaptation has been pushed back deep into next year.

Dune is considered one of the quintessential Science Fiction series by many, telling the tale of Paul Atreides and the struggle over the spice-rich desert world of Arrakis.

Fans of the books were hyped, to say the least, with new trailers coming out before the big-budget movie was set to premiere on December 18, 2020.

Starring Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Jason Momoa, and more, it certainly seemed like it would be one of the biggest movies during the holidays – but ongoing global events seem to have convinced Warner Brothers to delay it until Oct. 1, 2021.

According to Collider, a source from Warner Bros. told them that even though the studio was hoping people would be getting back to the theater around the holiday season, due to the way things have played out and other factors, they’ve decided to delay until October 2021.

For instance, Warner Bros. just moved Wonder Woman 1984 to come out on Christmas Day, which would have meant less than a week between major film premiers, definitely making things more of a mess.

This unfortunate delay might not even be the last one we see for Dune, if the trend continues. Oct. 1 is also slated to be the day that The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves comes out, which is also being distributed by Warner Bros.

Based on how the studio seems to feel about Dune vs. superhero films, we could be in for yet another delay due to The Batman next year.

That being said, according to Collider, Villeneuve reportedly has been supportive of the decision, since he’s said he made Dune to be seen on the big screen.

2020 certainly hasn’t seen very many people venturing out to take in movies at their local theatre – at least in the U.S. – and this decision by Warner Bros. just seems to show that studios are more than well aware of this.

Dune was was one of the most-hyped movies going into the holiday season, but it seems like we’ll just have to wait another year to head back to Arrakis.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
