The Warner Bros CinemaCon Panel is bringing a spicy presentation for today’s anticipated presentation. The sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s
debuts in theaters on November 3, 2023, but press members and attendees of this week’s show are getting a preview of Dune: Part Two before previews hit online.During the presentation for Dune: Part Two
, it was revealed the sequel was shot entirely for IMAX, making it the ultimate theater experience. Villeneuve, Timothee Challamet, Zendaya, and others took the stage at the beginning of the presentation. Villeneuve teased that the film picks right up where 2021’s Dune ended. Chalamet said that in the first film, Paul was a student. In this one, Paul becomes a leader, and redeemer of Freman. The story also digs deeply into the growing love between Paul and Chani, and Zendays says this was huge for her as, in the first film, her involvement was pretty limited.Regarding new characters, Villeneuve describes Austin Butler’s Feyd as an Olympic swordsman crossed with a serial killer and Mick Jagger. Christopher Walken, Florence Puge and Lea Seydoux will join the cast. Chris Bumbray, from JoBlo, is in the audience. He says that the film looks amazing. Butler looks terrifying in the trailer, which shows all of the new characters. Feyd has no hair and his skin is white as chalk. Paul is also seen riding the sandworm in what looks like one of the most outrageous scenes. The trailer is built around this scene. We also get a tease of the final battle between Paul and Feyd, which Chris says gave him goosebumps.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGsW3Y4dcM0
