First Glance: “Dune: Part Two”

There are so many movies I’m looking forward to this year – “Oppenheimer”, “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One”, “Killers of the Flower Moon” just to name a few. But HIGH on my personal list is “Dune: Part Two”, the sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s 2021 science-fiction epic. I loved everything about the first film so naturally its follow-up easily becomes a ‘must-see’ event for me.

“Dune: Part Two” is the second in a two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel. The incredible cast of Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Austin Butler, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Florence Pugh, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård, Christopher Walken, Léa Seydoux, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Charlotte Rampling are assembled to continue the story of Paul Atreides as he joins with the Freman to avenge his ravaged family and defeat the evil forces set on ruling the galaxy. Talking with Vanity Fair, Villenueve emphasized “It’s important—it’s not a sequel, it’s a second part. There’s a difference.” I love that idea. This is picking up where the first film left off and will give us a true flowing single story. I can’t wait.

“Dune: Part Two” releases exclusively in theaters on November 3rd. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. YES! I love what the director did with Blade Runner 2049 and I love what he did with Dune Part One. Need to watch One again, have only seen it once so far.
