It’s been a couple of years, but movie audiences will finally get to see the second part of Dune when it hits theaters this year. The book by Frank Herbert has been adapted into live-action before, but director Denis Villeneuve makes the world of Arrakis larger than life. Today, Warner Bros. Pictures has dropped the second trailer for Dune: Part Two, and it has the return of Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Zendaya as Chani, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, and more. Joining them are Austin Butler (Elvis), Florence Pugh (Black Widow) and Christopher Walken (Batman Returns).
In the trailer, we get to see Christopher Walken Shaddam IV, Austin Butler as Feyd, Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, and more. Paul Atreides is still afraid of his future, but there’s a taste of his rise as he gives his speech to the Fremen.
