“Dune” isn't done.
Legendary Entertainment announced Tuesday that Denis Villeneuve's “Dune," which adapts the first half of Frank Herbert's 1965 science-fiction epic, will get a sequel. Whether that would be the case had been an unanswered question throughout the film's release, which was delayed a year by the pandemic and ultimately debuted both in theaters and on HBO Max.
Here’s a collection curated by The Associated Press’ entertainment journalists of what’s arriving on TV, streaming services and music platforms this week.

Director Christopher McQuarrie ("Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation," "The Way of the Gun," "Jack Reacher") comes at us this week with a second impossible mission, this one code named "Fallout."
Much better than "Rogue Nation," this one has most of the same characters but holds nothing back with the fact that it is an all-out action flick.
