‘Dune: Part Two’ Trailer: Timothée Chalamet And Zendaya Ready For War In Denis Villeneuve’s Anticipated Sequel

Is it possible the expectations are even higher for Dune: Part Two? Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic did well in 2021, earning just over $400M. That’s not a gigantic hit, but it’s not like we’re talking Star Wars or Star Trek here. The Dune audience is loyal but very niche. And yet, with glowing reviews of the first movie and a star-powered cast, the sequel could turn out as the highest-grossing of the year.

Picking up right where things left off, Timothée Chalamet‘s Paul Atreides is on Arrakis hiding among the Freman, preparing for war against Baron Harkonnen, who murdered his entire House. There’s also the matter of Paul’s destiny and the fulfillment of that which will come with great consequences for the galaxy.

Here’s the synopsis: “Dune: Part Two” will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a path of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.

Returning or new to the Dune cast are Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård, Javier Bardem, Stephen McKindley Henderson, and Charlotte Rampling, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken, and Léa Seydoux.

Dune: Part Two hits theaters on November 3rd.
