Five huge ways Denis Villeneuve’s Dune changed the novel — and set up Part 2

The most famous science fiction novel of all time is now the buzziest movie of 2021. Delayed by nearly a year, Denis Villeneuve's Dune: Part One is finally in theaters and on HBO Max. Fair warning: the movie is a lot to take in, as are the novels that inspired it. The world-building of Frank Herbert’s distant future is layered, its stakes every-shifting. And throughout his six Dune books, the scope broadens to a degree nearly unparalleled in other sci-fi series.

Why ‘Dune Part Two’ Is Yet Another Blow To ‘Star Trek 4’

Two bits of good news for Dune yesterday. First, the $165 million sci-fi epic earned another $3.9 million on Tuesday, bringing its five-day cume to $48.5 million. The 8% jump from Monday (which itself dropped 63% from Sunday) is better than the 1.3% drop for F9 on its first Tuesday after itself dropping 63% from Sunday. It’s a smaller jump than Venom 2 (+9%), but the superhero sequel dropped 72% on its first Monday. Its five-day “weekend to cume” multiplier is 1.18x, on par with F9 and Black Widow. It’s not the next Titanic or Fellowship of the Ring, but it’s sticking around for now. Oh, and the Legendary/Warner Bros. film officially got a sequel yesterday afternoon, with Dune part Two now set for October 20, 2023.

Box Office: If ‘Dune’ Succeeds, The Sequel Could Be An Even Bigger Hit

Oddly enough, my IMAX showing of No Time to Die last night included the second Dune trailer, the one released in late July 2022, as opposed to this new pitch. The key bit is the very end, during which Zendaya offers up a grin and remarks to Timothée Chalamet that “This is only the beginning,” which should clue some folks into the notion that Dune won’t be a one-and-done narrative.

WarnerMedia Toppers Bullish On ‘Dune’ Sequel & More ‘Sopranos’ & ‘Matrix’ Despite Muted Box Office Results In HBO Max Day/Date Experiment

In a wide ranging interview with Deadline staff before earnings were released, WarnerMedia toppers Jason Kilar and Ann Sarnoff were quite pleased with the long term results of the disruptive decision to put its entire 2021 theatrical slate on its fledgling streaming service HBO Max as the films were released in movie theaters. They spent the money and time to repair relationships with talent and their reps, and said they will not blindside them or movie theaters again. More importantly, the numerous films on the slate with sequel potential will not be penalized by the stunted box office receipts that...

Would Eternals' Barry Keoghan Join Dune Part 2 As Feyd-Rautha? Here's What He Told Us

Dune Part Two has officially been greenlit; the movie that all fans of Dune hoped for is actually happening. And while that means the conclusion of the story for many characters that we met in the first movie, it will also require the casting of characters from the book that we did not even meet in the first movie. And there’s already a fan campaign underway to get Eternals’ Barry Keoghan drafted to play Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen in the sequel, and it sounds like, if the phone rings, he’s game for it.
