A joint venture between Warner Bros. and Legendary, Dune is based on the 1965 novel of the same name by Frank Herbert. The first movie opened in theaters in October 2018 and earned $401.8 million at the worldwide box office, along with six Oscars during the 94th Academy Awards.
The official Dune: Part Two synopsis reads as follows: “This follow-up film 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.”
The Dune sequel is also set to star Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Charlotte Rampling, Javier Bardem, Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, Christopher Walken, Léa Seydoux and Souheila Yacoub.
