Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” is a great piece of cinema, but it ends somewhere in the middle of the novel. Legendary Pictures and Warner have now confirmed that the sequel, which fans have pleadingly hoped for, may be shot.
Already from the conversation between the Warner managers and the US industry magazine “Variety” shortly before the delayed US launch of “Dune”, it was clear that the bare numbers of the ticket counters would not be the only factor that would decide whether to continue. After all, the series spin-off “Dune: The Sisterhood” had already been announced and critics and moviegoers around the world were enthusiastic about Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s SciFi cult novel. A cult franchise for the Warner empire that can hardly be outweighed in entry fees. Finally, Warner is also currently expanding with its streaming service HBO Max, for which one can just ignite a signal rocket in the international struggle for the video-on-demand market with heavyweights like “Dune” and potential successors.
“Dune: Part 2” – fans can look forward to it
While the first part of Denis Villeneuve’s brute movie “Dune” in two and a half hours due to its sheer size does not allow boredom, the director has saved some important characters and locations for the second part: So is from the notorious nephews of evil obese Baron Harkonnen so far only performed “the beast” Rabban (Dave Bautista). Feyd-Rautha (portrayed in the David Lynch film adaptation by musician Sting), who appears very early in the novel at the side of the Baron, has not yet been mentioned or shown in Villeneuve’s new edition. The navigators of the space guild, mutated spice junkies with superhuman abilities, have also not yet found their way onto the screen. Only their huge spaceships have already been seen several times in “Dune”. Furthermore, the emperor Shaddam IV, who is pulling the strings, and his daughter, Princess Irulan, are waiting for their first appearance at Denis Villeneuve.
