Dune 2, the second film belonging to the new interpretation of Frank Herbert’s classic, has a new release date slightly postponed compared to the one initially planned: we are now talking about the release in cinemas on November 17, 2023.
A slight delay was therefore confirmed compared to what was previously thought, given that the production had indicated October 20, 2023, as the release date at first. The reason for this move is not clear, but considering the time still missing before the release, it is likely that this date is also not final, pending evaluation of any subsequent unforeseen events.
Denis Villeneuve’s blockbuster will continue the story of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) in his path to recapture Arrakis after the Harkonnen conspiracy, picking up directly from the conclusion of the events seen in the first part. Arriving in November, the film will also have to contend with probable other heavyweights at the cinema, such as The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, scheduled for the same period.
Among the news regarding Dune 2, it recently emerged that the cast will include Léa Seydoux, as well as Florence Pugh (Black Widow), Christopher Walken (Catch Me if You Can) and Austin Butler, all together with the protagonists already seen in the first part.
