The film was originally scheduled to be released in late October 2023, before being delayed until November and finally delayed until March of this year following dual writer and actor strikes.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, tThe actress was joined by her co-stars Florence Pugh, Austin and Timothy, ahead of the film’s March 1 release.
Christopher, 80, appeared in a preview clip played during the show, in which he appears as Shaddam IV, the Padishah Emperor of the Known Universe, in a dramatic scene with Florence, 28, who plays his daughter, Princess Irulan.
“Did you know Christopher Walken was going to play your father?” Jimmy, 56, asked Florence, who was wearing a white dress with spaghetti straps.
‘Oh yes, no. It was like, “By the way, your dad is Christopher Walken.” I thought, “Oh, thank God,” Florence said, laughing.

Jimmy asked everyone if they could interact with Walken and admitted to wondering what the legendary actor was like.
‘I did. I spent most of my days with him, Charlotte Rampling and Léa Seydoux, but mostly with him. And all of our stuff was very intense.
“So I was in a room with him for hours,” said Florence, who is a newcomer to the Dune sequel along with Walken.
‘Is it intense for hours as a human?’ Jimmy asked.
‘No. It’s surprisingly silly. Between takes, she would talk to me about her favorite type of donuts,” Florence revealed.
She said they would film a dramatic scene and then Walken would turn to her and ask her about her favorite type of donut.
“Like, obviously, full of jam,” Florence said. “And then we’d go into another take of a really serious scene.”
‘Wow. I love that you understood that. “I didn’t even tell him anything,” Zendaya admitted.
‘Is that true?’ Jimmy asked.
“I was too nervous. What do I say? I mean, what do I say? I could have said, ‘What kind of donuts do you like?’ Now I know,” joked Zendaya, who reprises her role as Fremen warrior Chani in the sequel.
‘What are you saying? You know what I mean? “I remember us in the trailer, everyone having fun playing music, and as soon as he arrived…practicing my lines,” Zendaya added as she mimed going from dancing to reading a script in Walken’s presence.
Jimmy then asked Timothée and Austin if they were nervous about talking to Walken, too.
“I was very afraid to talk to him,” Timothée admitted.

Christopher appeared in a preview clip alongside Florence, who plays his on-screen daughter in the film.
Jimmy asked if Christopher shared any career advice with them and Austin said yes.
“When we were filming a scene with him, the offer to do Saturday Night Live had just come in,” the Elvis star said. “And he was so nervous that he wanted to say no.”
Austin said he asked Timothée, who previously hosted SNL in 2020, and anyone else who had done so before about participating in the show.
‘I was so terrified. At one point I thought, “Well, he’s done it many times and he’s one of the best presenters.” So I said, “Chris, what do you think of Saturday Night Live?” Should I do it?” And he says, ”You have to do it. Just read the cue cards,’ Austin said as he imitated Walken.
“That’s pretty good,” Jimmy said. “That’s a solid Christopher Walken.”
