A little less than three months before the release of Dune: Part Two, scheduled for March 1, a third trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s film was revealed at noon on Tuesday.
For 2 minutes 40 minutes, we see numerous images of breathtaking action and of the entire cast led by Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya, who play Paul Atreides and Chani respectively. Their relationship is at the heart of the trailer, as the latter explains to the hero with prophetic visions that all are equal in the Fremen people and that they will fight to defend Arrakis from the invaders of House Harkonnen.
In addition to the two young actors and the returns of Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Charlotte Rampling, Stellan Skarsgård and Stephen McKinley Henderson, we add the excellent Austin Butler – terrifying as Feyd-Rautha –, Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken and Léa Seydoux.
Denis Villeneuve and Jon Spaights once again co-signed the screenplay, based on the legendary novel by Frank Herbert. The Quebec filmmaker recently mentioned in an interview that the writing of a third film, inspired by the live The Messiah of Dune, is in progress and that he dreams of directing it. He indicated that for “his sanity” he would probably shoot another project before finishing the trilogy.
