‘Dune: Part Two’ Will Release Two Weeks Earlier Than Expected

After Disney delayed Blade, starring Mahershala Ali as the powerful vampire hunter, Warner Bros. didn’t take too long to make adjustments to their own schedule. Denis Villeneuve‘s sequel, Dune: Part Two will now release on the date the Marvel Cinematic Universe was set to release its 34th film, November 3rd, 2023. The first weekend of November has proven to be an excellent date for blockbuster films, as it marks the beginning of the Holiday movie season.

Villeneuve returns to the director’s chair after the first part was a big hit last year. Although its box office receipts were affected by the pandemic, Dune still managed to earn ten nominations at the 94th Academy Awards. Out of those ten nominations, the film went home with six awards, including Best Sound, Best Original Score, and Best Film Editing.

The second entry will explore the mythic journey of Duke Paul Atreides, who has clairvoyant powers that may enable him to guide humanity to a better future. Now united with Chani and the Fremen, Paul is set 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.

The sequel’s cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård and Zendaya, who are all returning from the first movie. Newcomers to the franchise include Florence Pugh, Austin Butler and Christopher Walken.
