The movie will focus on the first half of the sci-fi book, during which Paul and his noble family are thrust into a war for the dangerous desert planet Arrakis, instigated by the scheming House Harkonnen.

Zendaya, Oscar Issac, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, and Stellan Skarsgård also star in the long-awaited film.

Early reviews for the movie have been mostly positive.

With a stellar cast and sneak peeks teasing some epic cinematography, Dune could be one of the best films to come out this year.

What happens when two serial killers try to have a normal life?

How about chaos and probably more bloodshed?

Netflix's You will return for a third season and fans have already been given a preview of what's to come.

Joe Goldberg, played by Penn Badgley, and his girlfriend Love Quinn, portrayed by Victoria Pedretti, have settled down with their newborn son in the Californian suburb of Madre Linda.

Yet old habits die hard for Joe, who struggles to control his psychopathic, stalker tendencies.

This will cause problems with Love – who has literally killed to make sure the couple has a new life.

Will Joe and Love get caught?

Netflix's You returns on October 15.

Halloween Kills

Evil never dies, and neither does Michael Myers.

Just in time for the spooky season, the next chapter in the Halloween saga will arrive later this month.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, the traumatized victim seeking to finally kill Michael once and for all.

Halloween Kills picks right up from where its predecessor ended.

Instead of Michal succumbing to the trap Laurie, her daughter, and granddaughter set for him, he unsurprisingly survives.

Now, Laurie is determined to terminate him, but she'll have some backup this time.

Reprising their roles for the 1978 flick, Will Patton, Kyle Richards, Nancy Stephens will also appear in the upcoming sequel.

And since there is a third film already confirmed for next year, don't expect Michael to finally meet his maker just yet. That doesn't mean we won't see other characters end up badly, though.

Halloween Kills hits theaters on October 14.

Netflix's Maid

Netflix's latest comedy-drama, Maid, stars Margaret Qualley in her first lead role.

The miniseries is based on Stephanie Land's critically-acclaimed memoir, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive.

Margaret plays the main character Alex – a single mother who becomes a maid to make ends meet as she battles against poverty, homelessness, and bureaucracy.

The 26-year-old famous mother, Andie McDowell, will also be in the series.

Margaret was born with some good acting genes, yet will she deliver?

Netflix's Maid is now streaming.

No Time to Die

Daniel Craig will give his final performance as Jams Bond in the much-anticipated No Time to Die.

The spy film will follow the British MI6 agent being recruited to help an old friend while enjoying a tropical vacation.

Endless delays and the fact that this will be Daniel's last ride as the alluring secret agent have raised expectations sky-high.

Newcomers, Ana de Armas, Rami Malek, and Lashana Lynch will join in on the action.

Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz, and Ralph Fiennes will be reprising their roles from previous films.

It will be intriguing to see how the flick will close out the English actor's long-running chapter, and even more so to find out who will be expected to fill his polished shoes.

No Time to Die will be released theatrically on October 8.
