Timothée Chalamet Rides A Sandworm, Battles Austin Butler In Extended ‘Dune: Part Two’ Clip

We’re now about a month away from the arrival of Dune: Part Two, and it’s time to begin getting excited for Denis Villeneuve’s sequel. Warner Bros. has dropped an extended six-minute clip centering on a key action sequence with star Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides.

As seen in the footage, Atreides is engaged in the final test to become one of the Fremen, and lead them into battle against Harkonnen. But to pass, he’ll have to tame and ride one of Arrakis’ gigantic sandworms, or die trying.

Also featured in the clip are Zendaya as Chani, and Javier Bardem as Stilgar, leader of the Fremen of  Sietch Tabr.

We also see new footage of the Fremen in a destructive battle against the forces of Harkonnen, and Paul squaring off with the ruthless Feyd-Rautha, played by Austin Butler.

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 warpath 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.

Dune: Part Two hits theaters on March 1st.
