I am very happy at the moment. this is so beautiful. I cry talking about it because I love Denny (Villeneuve) and I love Greg (Fraser) and I love the team. But boy, the first film is phenomenal and gorgeous and awe-inspiring, but then there are the close-ups, the visuals, and the performances. Yes, it’s all great. But compared to the other it is nothing. The second is like getting punched in the stomach. This is amazing.
As the most recent trailer for Dune: Part Two reveals, the dramatic puzzles intensify in the second film, as Paul Atreides assembles his Fremen army to battle the evil Harkonnens. The Harkonnen mix includes the brash Fayed-Rautha, played by Austin Butler, who was nominated for an Oscar for his role in Elvis (he doesn’t even appear in the trailer). Emperor Shaddam IV’s mysterious son (Christopher Walken) and his daughter Princess Irulan (Florence Pugh) also engage in an intergalactic chess game in Dune: Part Two.

In fact, the love story between Paul and Chaani will become an integral part of the second film, in the hope of giving an emotional jolt to the audience.
