Dune Part 2
‘Dune: Part Two’ is officially happening!
Villeneuve’s version of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel opening with a title reading “Dune: Part One”, literally gave a hint that the business will not finish in the next 2 and a half hours.
And perhaps that abrupt ending has been justified now!
Legendary Entertainment made the announcement of the film’s sequel on Tuesday, stating that the sequel will hit theaters on Oct. 20, 2023.
This is only the beginning…

After much delay owing to the pandemic, the first part of the sci-fi epic was released on Oct. 22 in the U.S.
The film earned $41 million in ticket sales on its first weekend, making it the best film opening of the year for Warner Bros.
“If such a thing as ‘Dune: Part Two’ happens, I would say that is going to be an insane playground for me,” director Denis Villeneuve said while talking to Variety last month.
