'Dune' cinematographer Greig Fraser has hinted that the sequel will be "bigger and better". The follow-up to the sci-fi epic, 'Dune: Part Two', is slated for release next year and Fraser claims that it will be more impressive than the first movie – which received praise when it was released last year.
Last year's Dune proved to be one of the year's biggest films, but according to the project's director of photography Greig Fraser, the upcoming Dune: Part Two will be an even bigger adventure. Given that the sequel is based on the Frank Herbert novel, the events of the story itself might not come as much of a surprise to those familiar with the text, but any audiences unfamiliar with the source material will likely be blown away yet again with how much the upcoming adventure has in store for viewers. Dune: Part Two is slated to hit theaters on October 20, 2023.
Australian Greig Fraser has continued Dune’s early run of wins at the 2022 Academy Awards, collecting the Oscar for best cinematography. Fraser beat fellow Australian cinematographer Ari Wegner, who was tipped to make Oscars history by becoming the first woman to win the category in the Academy Awards’ 94-years, for The Power of the Dog.
