‘Dune: Part Two’ – Explosive Action, Epic Battles, and a Hero’s Journey Continues in First Trailer
The first Dune: Part Two trailer is finally here. Paul’s world is about to crack wide open – and his enemies aren’t expecting his wrath.
The story and setting are about to get much bigger. Dune: Part Two covers the second half of the classic sci-fi novel, starting with Paul and Jessica’s trek to the Fremen sietch. This half will bring more interplanetary politics, Paul’s rise as a leader, and the start of the Muad’Dib’s Jihad. Plus, all of the new characters that come with that expansion.
Dune: Part Two is a war movie about retribution. Villeneuve has promised that there will be more action in this movie than in the last, which contains a substantial amount of world-building.
“It’s like a chess game. Some new characters will be introduced in the second part and a decision I made very early on was that this first part would be more about Paul Atreides and the Bene Gesserit, and his experience of being in contact for the first time with a different culture. Second part, there will be much more Harkonnen stuff.”-Director Denis Villeneuve via Variety
Dune: Part Two Trailer
The official Dune Twitter account put out a teaser yesterday afternoon. The footage begins with Paul staking a thumper into a dune to lure a giant sandworm. The footage cuts before we see the monstrous creature to images of the story’s main characters – including the first look at Feyd-Rautha’s face.
The full trailer shows more of that scene and so much more. Jessica having a revelation, Princess Irrulan contemplating the Corino family’s fate, Feyd fighting in an arena, and armies of Fremen cheering for Paul. The Emperor isn’t revealed – but damn, does this look fantastic.
