The logo for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune reboot has made its way online.
While not released publicly by Warner Bros., the logo was shown at French Convention and has since been making the rounds on social media.
With Dune still 11 months away from hitting theaters, it is possible the logo could change. After all, Warner Bros. and Legendary previously used a much more traditional looking font and logo for a Dune teaser poster at a marketing expo last year. But, this new logo is the closest thing to a piece of actual promotional material released so far. It’s possible this Dune logo could be officially confirmed as the final design during WB’s presentation at CinemaCon – a convention where studios detail their upcoming slate to the movie theater industry – at the end of March. If not, then fans may have to wait until the marketing campaign begins later this year.
Although logos are not the most important factor in a movie’s success, there is a need for WB and Legendary to make sure they are happy with the look. They are hoping that Dune is the start of an expansive franchise, so future projects would likely mimic the style of the first film. The fan-made recreation has already come under some scrutiny for making it look like the title is “Dunc” instead. With a sequel to Dune already being written and a spinoff TV show in the works for HBO Max, there can’t be any chance at confusing general audiences based on the logo alone.
Directed by Denis Villeneuve from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts, Legendary Pictures’ Dune stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, Javier Bardem, Charlotte Rampling, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Stephen Henderson and Josh Brolin. The film arrives in theaters Dec. 18.
