With the long-awaited trailer for Dune: Part Two finally out, we round-up what to expect over a year since the first film.

The long-awaited trailer for Dune: Part Two was finally released on Thursday, a year and a half after the first film came out. Part Two is due to cover the second half of Frank Herbert’s 600-or-so page novel, Dune, which was released in 1965.


As the last film closed we saw Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) walking across the sandy dunes of Arrakis with love interest Chani (Zendaya). Zendaya is due to have a bigger role in this sequel as it follows Paul Atreides exploring Arrakis and building an army of Fremen to exact revenge on the Harkonnens after they killed his father.

In the trailer we get to see the first proper look at sandworm riding, one of the most iconic moments in the novel as Paul learns to live as the Fremen do, using a sort of grappling hook to navigate the hostile desert landscape, the majority of which was filmed in Jordan.


Directed by Denis Villeneuve with a score by Hans Zimmer, the first film received rave reviews, despite low box office figures because of its release during Covid. Luckily we won’t have to wait long for the new film’s release as it is expected to hit cinemas in the UK on the 3rd of November.
