Part Two MPA rating announced for Timothée Chalamet’s sequel

According to Film Ratings, the long-awaited sequel from Warner Bros. and Legendary’s “Dune: Part Two” is officially rated PG-13 by the MPA for “scenes of strong violence, some suggestive material and brief language.”

Originally scheduled to debut on November 3, 2023, the sequel is now set to hit theaters on March 15, 2024. Its current theatrical release will not pit the sci-fi action sequel in direct competition at the box office. However, it still debuts in the same month as other high-profile films, including The Fallen Boy, Kung Fu Panda 4, A Quiet Place: Day One, and the live-action Snow White and Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2.

What is Dune: Part Two?

“This sequel film follows the mythical journey of Paul Atreides as he teams up with Chani and the Fremen on the warpath to exact revenge on the conspirators who destroyed his family,” the synopsis reads. “Faced with a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he tries to prevent a terrible future that only he can foresee.”

Dune: Part Two is again directed by Denis Villeneuve from a script he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts. The returning cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin and Stephen McKinley Henderson. They will be joined by franchise newcomers Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV, Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha, Léa Seydoux as Lady Margot and Suheila Yacoub as Shishakli.

Upon its release in 2021, the first film received acclaim from fans and critics alike. It also received a whopping 10 Academy Award nominations. It won six of them, including best original score and best cinematography.
