Dune: Part Two at HOME Manchester, Manchester 1 — 28 March 2024 Tickets from £7.95 — Book now

One of the biggest movies of the year hits the big screen at HOME this March, as director Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part 2 gets its long-anticipated release. Cleaving Frank Herbert’s iconic sci-fi novel in half was seen as a risky move, and when the first instalment was released in 2021, there was no guarantee that audiences would necessarily get to see a sequel. But the success of that first film, which grossed more than $400 million at the world wide box office, was enough to ensure that Villeneue could get the gang back together.

Dune left Timothy Chalamet’s noble Paul Atreides, on the run with his mother Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) following the invasion of the resource-rich planet Arrakis — and destruction of his family — by the brutal House of Harkonnen. Left to join the company of the Fremen, natives of Arrakis, Dune: Part 2 picks up with Paul plotting a narrow course of action through ideas of vengeance, war and peace, as his premonitory dreams continue, and the prospect of romance presents itself.

The first film was notable for the galaxy of movie stars assembled by Villeneue and his team, and Part 2 adds the formidable talents of Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken and Léa Seydoux to a cast that already boasts Chalamet and Ferguson, as well as the likes of Zendaya, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem and Charlotte Rampling.

Importantly, Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049) returns in the director’s chair, along with cinematographer Greig Fraser (The Batman), and legendary composer Hans Zimmer (Gladiator) — both of whom contributed hugely to Dune‘s sense of epic scale.
