“Dune: Part Two” trailer: Timothée Chalamet in the first shot

Check out the first footage from Denis Villeneuve’s sequel ahead of the full trailer’s release on Wednesday, May 3.

The rise of Paul Atreides among the Fremen is upon us.

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for “Dune: Part Two” ahead of its official trailer release on Wednesday, May 3. Check it out below.

The film hits theaters on November 3, 2023, and follows Paul’s (Timothée Chalamet) ascension to the Fremen and the resulting rebellion in IV. against Emperor Shaddam (Christopher Walken) while Paul seeks revenge for his father’s murder and peace to Arrakis.

Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Charlotte Rampling and Javier Bardem all reprise their roles from the first film, with some new faces joining the cast. Along with Walken, they include Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, Léa Seydoux, Souheila Yacoub and Tim Blake Nelson.

At CinemaCon, director Denis Villeneuve said that “Part Two is a more action-packed, epic war movie, much more crowded, much more dance.” This time, the entire film was shot with IMAX cameras. Only about 40 percent of “Part One” was shot with IMAX cameras.

The Warner Bros./Legendary Entertainment film will skip the Venice Film Festival this summer, where “Part One” premiered in 2021, while Villeneuve and his team complete their ambitious special effects. And as the film’s CinemaCon presentation revealed, many of these effects are practical, including Chalamet riding one of Arrakis’ giant sandworms.

Jon Spaihts and Denis Villeneuve are once again co-writing the screenplay, with Oscar nominee Pugh as “a political chess player,” Princess Irulan Corrino and Butler as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, “an Olympic swordsman crossed with a psychotic serial killer.”

A recent curtain raiser for the film Vanity Fair He revealed that Chalamet and Zendaya had very little time each day to film their romantic scenes: only about an hour at sunset to capture the natural light.

“There’s kind of a ticking timer,” Zendaya told the outlet. “You kind of feel like, ‘Okay, we’re here, but we’ve got maybe an hour to get it.'” So we revisited a little each day, and over a few days that adds up to a few hours. Every time we watched it again, we had to sleep, think, and come up with new ideas.”
