Warner Bros. is gearing up to enthrall audiences once again as they prepare to release the highly-anticipated second installment of the Dune series in November 2023. Building upon the success of the first film, the studio is pulling out all the stops to deliver another cinematic masterpiece.

The first Dune movie ended on a cliffhanger, with Paul Atreidis and his companions escaping into the desert, setting the stage for the sequel. Dune: Part Two is expected to continue the story of Paul as he becomes a messiah figure for the native people of the planet Arrakis, the site of the spice trade.

A joint venture between Warner Bros. and Legendary, Dune is based on the 1965 novel of the same name by Frank Herbert. The movie opened in theaters in October 2018 and earned $401.8 million at the worldwide box office, along with six Oscars during the 94th Academy Awards.
