Dune: Part Two (2024, D: Villeneuve) 2une: I Could Dune This All Day


It what comes as no surprise, the sequel for Dune finally has been greenlighted for a October 2023 theatrical release with director, producer, and co-screenwriter Denis Villeneuve returning. Key word here is theatrical. We understand that a key point of negotiations between Legendary and Warner Bros was that Part 2 of this cinema spectacle would be given a pure theatrical window; no day-and-date HBO Max release plan is in the mix.

While the David Lynch 1984 feature adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 412-page novel crammed the whole story into one movie, it was always part of Villeneuve’s vision to spread his reboot across two films.

“I just received news from Legendary that we are officially moving forward with Dune: Part Two. It was a dream of mine to adapt Frank Herbert’s DUNE and I have the fans, the cast, and crew, Legendary and Warner Bros. to thank for supporting this dream. This is only the beginning,” said Villeneuve.

Dune overperformed its domestic projections this past weekend opening to $41M, with over half of its ticket sales driven by large format and PLF theaters. Heading into the weekend we heard that Dune had some $12M in advance tickets sales; more than any other event film during the pandemic. The pic was further bolstered by Canada, which delivered 11% of domestic weekend ticket sales; the pic being on a theatrical window up there since HBO Max isn’t available in the country. In regards to its performance on HBO Max, while WarnerMedia didn’t report any figures, Samba TV, which measures streaming viewership in 3M U.S. households, reported that 1.9M Smart TV households watch Villeneuve’s Dune over the weekend. Among the theatrical/HBO Max titles measure by Samba TV, that’s the 6th best weekend debut by a Warner Bros/HBO Max day and date title, Mortal Kombat topping that list with 3.8M. All of this is a great indicator that those who wanted to watch Dune, saw it in a movie theater. Warner Bros. launched the movie ahead in overseas markets where its current global B.O. stands at $223.2M.

“Denis Villeneuve has crafted a film that is both visually extraordinary and emotionally transporting, as evidenced by its global success both critically and at the box office,” said Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Picture Group. “We are thrilled to continue on this journey with Denis and his cast and crew, and our partners at Legendary, and can’t wait to bring the next chapter of this epic tale to theaters in October 2023.”

WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Chair and CEO Ann Sarnoff told Deadline last week in a sit-down that a Dune sequel was definitely in the cards, but given how Legendary is carrying 80% of the production cost, and Warners the balance.

“Legendary is pleased to officially move forward with Dune: Part Two…once again based on the amazing books written by Frank Herbert,” said Legendary. “We would not have gotten to this point without the extraordinary vision of Denis and the amazing work of his talented crew, the writers, our stellar cast, our partners at Warner Bros., and of course the fans! Here’s to more Dune.”

Good to hear. I know Villeneuve was already writing part 2 and hopefully the cast is in the process of signing contracts if they havenít already so that this thing can be streamlined and made relatively quickly.

I donít think anyone was expecting Part 2 to be a day and date release on HBOmax like the first one. With any luck, by the time Part 2 is released COVID wonít be an issue anymore.

Wow, as a long time DUNE fan seeing the excitement for the 1st film and now Part II on Social Media is very cool. This film hit at the right time.

Not expecting it... but I'm sure Legendary, Villeneuve, and whoever needed it guaranteed in writing that WB wasn't going to fuck them in two years and change any plans... especially with WB being merged with Discovery and new people could be in charge by then.

Good timing, at least I know that seing this in IMAX tonight won't end up being a waste of time.

Thats what I figure as well. There was A LOT of arguing back and forth with the release of Dune, I imagine that Villeneuve, in particular, wanted it in writing how Part 2 would be released. If for no other reason than to avoid the infighting between all involved.

Well, surely by Oct 2023 we'll be either out of the pandemic or we'll all be dead so if they want it theater only, whatever.

Anyways, the reaction from film Twitter is generally positive, but again, so many people utterly gobsmacked that the two parts weren't filmed together. Yes, we know why, but for most of the movie going public that isn't into behind the scenes stuff, it doesn't make any sense.

Is there enough footage for an extended edition of the first one?

I was listening to an interview on youtube where Christopher Nolan was interviewing Villeneuve about Dune and Villeneuve said they didn't film both together because of the high cost and because of some hesitation from studio about the box office of Blade Runner 2049. He didn't seem to like the idea either since Dune was something like a 105 day shoot.

I'm glad this is happening but I don't understand why they're waiting so long to release the second movie when they filmed it already. Let's be smart about this.

If we're not out of the pandemic by that point then I would say most of the known world will have ceased to function.


If WB is smart they'll create new TV spots that emphasize what's in theaters now is part 1 and possibly even put in a small mention of the sequel coming in 2023.

Personally, I think two years from now in October is kind of a lofty goal. I say shoot for either a mid November or mid December release. Unless December is about to be dominated by Avatar sequels for some time.

Yes, apparently so, but Denis has said he doesn't do extended cuts.

Though, I could see WB/Legendary twisting his arm to do something to maybe help boost the second one a few months before Part 2 releases.
That's if he doesn't use some of the footage in Part 2 as flashbacks or anything like that.

Every movie that's filmed shoots more footage than what is actually needed.

You can't shoot "just enough" otherwise you'll get screwed in the editing room.

I guess the non-theater goers will be waiting until 2024 to see this.

I caught a test screening after work today, it's pretty good. Ends well. The Baron's makeup is great.

Does it expand on any of the characters, and most importantly, is there more cowbell?

Was the 45 minute bagpipe/throat singing sequence well integrated at least?

Close. The cowbell is in the bagpipes in this one, so yes to both.
