Opening on 1 March, the sequel "Dune: Part Two," director Denis Villeneuve stated that it is the culmination of a six-year filmmaking journey that he has been dreaming of for 40 years.
Frank Herbert's world-famous science fiction series Dune was previously transferred to cinema by David Lynch in 1984. In the 1970s, Alejandro Jodorowsky made an attempt for this adaptation, but the project could not be realised.
Villeneuve will finally release the film during one of the most turbulent periods in Hollywood history, with two postponed releases (one due to the pandemic, the other due to Hollywood strikes), "Part Two" contains at least seven important action scenes compared to the two action scenes in the first film.
The film follows Paul Atreides, played by Timothée Chalamet, after a calculated and devastating attack by a rival dynasty on his family and followers, who have just taken control of the mineral-rich desert planet Arrakis.
The Canadian director pointed out why the third film, which has not yet been officially confirmed, is necessary.
Denis Villeneuve, who made a name for himself with Arrival, Blade Runner 2049 and Sicario, was the only one who had the opportunity to tackle the Dune series in a contemporary and wide-ranging way.
