DUNE Returns to Theaters With Sneak Peek at PART TWO

By Movieguide® Contributor

DUNE is coming back to theaters.

“#DuneMovie returns to theaters for a special one week engagement beginning February 9!” the movie’s Instagram account announced. “Includes a sneak peek at Dune: Part Two.”

Movieguide® praised DUNE’s “Very conservative worldview about people looking for a savior and fighting for their independence.” Part of the review reads:

DUNE is a powerful, exciting, satisfying epic. It’s worth seeing on a big screen. Even better, the movie has strong Christological themes, excellent dialogue and conservative statements about freedom and individualism. It affirms a father’s love and the importance of motherhood. DUNE has very little foul language, and no explicit crude content. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for older children and young teenagers because of intense action violence and references to the hallucinogenic properties of the natural resource called spice.

DUNE: PART TWO will hit theaters March 1 and star Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh and Rebecca Ferguson. 

Director Denis Villeneuve spoke to TIME about making the movies, explaining that he has been a fan of the “Dune” books since he was 14. 

“I  was trying to be, as a filmmaker, as invisible as possible,” Villeneuve said. “I tried my best to keep the poetry of the book, the atmosphere, the colors, the smell, everything that I felt when I read the book. I tried.”

Despite the popularity of DUNE and the eager anticipation for its follow-up, the filmmaker has revealed he only plans to make one more movie in the series. 

“DUNE MESSIAH should be the last DUNE movie for me,” he explained, referring to the second book in the series written by Frank Herbert. 

He continued, “If I succeed in making a trilogy, that would be the dream. DUNE MESSIAH was written in reaction to the fact that people perceived Paul Atreides [Chalamet’s character] as a hero, which is not what [Herbert] wanted to do. My adaptation [of DUNE] is closer to his idea that it’s actually a warning.”
