Dune 2 finally arrives at the cinema: here is the trailer and what we can expect

Movies like Dune – Part Two they have the power to remind us how magical cinema is and how the theater will always win the game with the streaming we enjoy from home. Despite increasingly advanced surround systems and latest generation projectors, it is almost impossible, in fact, to get sucked into a story like that of Dunes in an environment other than cinema, and this is why we advise you not to wait for the film to be released on some platform but to rush to watch it in theaters on February 28th, two years of waiting since the release of the first chapter. A chapter over which, especially at the beginning, a certain form of skepticism hovered both for the disastrous film shot by David Lynch in 1984 and for the saga of Star Wars which effectively plundered the novel by Frank Herbert to create a universe and suggestions very similar to those of Dunes. Fortunately, thanks to one obsessive attention to detail and to a development that courageously decided to take its time rather than focus entirely on action scenes, the director Denis Villeneuve managed to convince both the public and critics of the success of the operation which, after the presentation in Venice and ben 6 Oscars on the shelf, is finally ready for a second chapter.

The film, which it was initially supposed to be released in the fall of 2023 only to then delay the distribution due to the actors' strike which would have prevented the performers from promoting this blockbuster as it deserved, it picks up exactly where the first one ended Dunesfollowing the legendary journey of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) to discover himself and search for power. After the death of his father, Duke Leto Atreides, the time has come for Paul to discover his true origins and save the remote planet of Arrakis from the threat of the Harkonnen, ready to do anything to continue extracting the precious Spice that grows underground of the celestial body and to forcibly repress the uprisings of the Frementhe native population of Arrakis who fight to be free, trusting in the arrival of a messiah capable of saving them.

Through breathtaking sequences like the ones you can see in the trailer and particularly awaited new entries like Austin Butler in the role of an unrecognizable villain, passing through Florence Pugh And Léa Seydoux, Dune – Part 2 sets up a mammoth epic in which what stands out are not only the giant worms that emerge from the sand dunes and the spectacular fights between the protagonists, but also a not too veiled symbolism with the Middle Eastern worldee exploitation by Western democracies to make its riches their own. In this sense, the journey of Paul, from his native Chani (Zendaya), of Stilgar (Javier Bardem), by Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) and the other characters cannot help but represent hope for the same better future, far from corruption and power games, which we too dream of a little. Dune – Part 2produced by Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, written by Villeneuve himself with Jon Spaihts and shot in Budapest, Abu Dhabi, Jordan and Italy, will be released in Italian cinemas on February 28, 2024distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
