A sequel to the hit 2021 film was officially announced last October after the new film grossed over $40 million at the US box office in its opening weekend. She will land in October 2023.
Speak with meetingVilleneuve described the sequel to his acclaimed sci-fi film starring Zendaya and Tom Holland as “another beautiful journey into the desert”.
He continued, “It is the journey that takes Paul Atreides and his mother, Lady Jessica, in contact with Fremen culture and meeting with the Fremen. It’s Paul’s journey against the enemy.
“It’s a more cinematic movie,” he added.
In a new interview on Variety’s Awards Circuit Podcast, Villeneuve also said that Zendaya’s small role in the first dune would be greatly expanded in the sequel.
He said, “For Zendaya, I would say Part One was a promise. I know we caught a glimpse of her in part one, but she’ll feature prominently in part two.
“We will follow Timothée [Chalamet] and Zendaya on their adventures in the desert. That’s what drew me most to coming back to Arrakis, and that’s being able to spend time with these characters again.”
dunewhich ends halfway through Frank Herbert’s novel, starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, Zendaya, Dave Bautista, and David Dastmalchian.
in the NMEs four star rating, dune is described as lacking, but “the sheer ambition on display here means you get a lot for your buck”.
The review added: “After two hours and 35 minutes Dune’s lack of closure feels irksome to say the least. The average moviegoer might not have realized they have to come back for another round – and there’s little about it dune‘s marketing to help them develop.
Last week, the film won five awards at the 2022 BAFTAs.
