Strap into your stillsuits and preserve your water, as a result of we’re going again to Arrakis!

The trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Half Two teases our return to the attractive — but harmful — desert planet. We decide up proper the place the primary Dune left off, with Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and his mom Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) assimilating into the Fremen tribe led by Stilgar (Javier Bardem). There, Paul falls in love with Chani (Zendaya), and vows to assist free Arrakis from its oppressors and remodel it right into a watery paradise.

It will not be simple: Paul will face a lot opposition, particularly from new characters launched within the trailer. Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård) and his nephew Rabban (Dave Bautista) have already established themselves as brutal enemies. Nevertheless, a brand new menace arises: the Baron’s youthful nephew Feyd-Rautha (Austin Butler). He is a lethal swordsman hell-bent on taking out Paul. Additionally, he is bald.

The sand flying in all places! All hail the majesty of Shai-Hulud.
