Dune Part Two is arguably the next “big” release after Madame Web craters its way into cinemas next week. We return to Arrakis all the way off, on March 1st. Tickets have gone on sale for Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic follow-up, and the marketing has started in earnest.
TV spots are dropping. Posters adorn the theater lobby. Of course, promotional tie-ins have started. One of these is causing some mirth out there on the internet.
It is a popcorn bucket for the film which has a molded sandworm maw for a lid. And it is… well… erm… just see for yourselves.
It’s not quite up there with the “novelization” of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the Mean Girls Nintendo DS game, or The Blair Witch Project soundtrack album (these are all real, I promise!) but this could well find itself on the movie tie-in and merch “What the hell were they thinking?” list alongside those entries.
Anyway, you know the drill by now. Dune Part Two adapts the second half of yadda-yadda-yadda just shut up and show us the movie already!
Accidental space Jesus returns alongside his new worm-riding jihadi friends to blow some shit up real good, and things will go sideways across the galaxy.
Zendaya, Dave Bautista, Charlotte Rampling, Stellan Skarsgard, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Josh Brolin, and Javier Bardem are all back, with Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Lea Seydoux, Tim Blake Nelson, and Christopher Walken joining them this time around.
Dune Part Two premieres in cinemas on March 1st and is still top of most of our “must-see” lists this year.
