Every month, Netflix releases new content on its platform as well as removes some licensed content. We've already seen several licensed shows and movies depart the streamer in February, like Floribama Shore season 1, Prisoners and Father Stu. Sadly, this isn't the end of the departures for this month. Then, at the very top of next month, we will be saying goodbye to the science fiction film Dune. This is such a bummer...
It's a movie that was directed by Denis Villeneuve from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth. Based on the 1965 book of the same name by Frank Herbert, Dune is set in the distant future and follows a gifted young man by the name of Paul Atreides who is the heir to the noble House Atreides.
To ensure the future of his family and his people, Paul travels to the dangerous harsh desert planet of Arrakis. Arrakis is home to the most valuable and powerful substance in the universe, Melange, a drug that makes space travel possible among other things. After House Atreides is ordered by Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV to take control of Arrakis from House Harkonnen, this thrusts Paul and his family into a war and puts them in great danger since House Harkonnen refuses to relinquish control of the resource-rich planet.
Timothée Chalamet stars in the leading role of Paul Atreides. He's an Academy Award-nominated actor who is best known for his roles in the movies Call Me by Your Name, Lady Bird, Little Women, Bones and All and Wonka. Joining him in the cast are actors Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and so many others.
When is Dune leaving Netflix?
The sci-fi film is slated to depart Netflix on Friday, March 1, 2024. This means the last day to watch it on the streaming platform is Feb. 29. Don't fret, though. There is another place where you can watch this movie once it leaves Netflix. That place is Max, formerly HBO Max. It's currently available to watch on this streaming platform. You'll just need a subscription to gain access. But if you would rather rent or buy the film, you can do so through Amazon Video, Vudu, Google Play, or the Microsoft Store.
