The highly anticipated sequel, Dune: Part Two, was released this past weekend to incredible acclaim and box-office success, and you better believe people online had all kinds of things to say about it.

What to expect from Dune: Part Two

The movie, which is a direct sequel to the 2021 blockbuster Dune: Part One, absolutely dominated the box office in its first weekend. Actually, “dominated” doesn’t even really cover it, as it earned an estimated $81.5 million domestically and $178.5 million globally. As noted by CNN, this debut significantly beat the franchise’s own first film, which opened to an estimated $41 million domestically back in October of 2021. It is also now has the highest grossing opening weekend of 2024 thus far.

As previously mentioned, the sequel film has been highly anticipated, with fans voicing their excitement over its release since the credits rolled on initial screenings of the first film. And this hype was only further intensified when the original release date for the sequel—which was set for November of 2023—was moved forward by four months to March of 2024.

Also, it’s worth noting the (accidentally hilarious) marketing around the film has been in the news quite a bit recently thanks to the countless viral memes about the tie-in movie theater popcorn bucket. Plus, you know, its also helped by its unbelievably large cast of genuine stars, helmed by Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya.

Aside from Timothée and Zendaya, the returning cast includes Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Rampling, and Stellan Skarsgård. On the other end, newcomers to the cast include Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Léa Seydoux, Christopher Walken, and Souheila Yacoub. And, of course, we mustn’t forget that big ol’ worm I’ve grown so very fond of.

Commercial success aside, the film has also been universally praised by critics and moviegoers alike, with the movie currently sitting at a 93% critics score and a 95% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, respectively.
