We’ve but to see a trailer or stills from Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune: Half Two” at this level as every part concerning the movie stays below wraps for now because it continues post-production.
What we do know is that this may adapt the second half of Frank Herbert’s novel and proceed the journey of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) who’s now united with Chani (Zendaya) and the Fremen.
Paul seeks revenge in opposition to the conspirators who destroyed his household and endeavors to forestall a horrible future that solely he can predict. The venture was shot over the again half of final 12 months and wrapped taking pictures in December.
The movie’s manufacturing designer Jacqueline West reveals to Deadline that the second movie was much more labor intensive than the primary with “plenty of costumes” made. A part of the explanation was the primary movie was largely set across the desert planet of Arrakis with temporary visits to Caladan (the Atreides dwelling) and Giedi Prime (the Harkonnen dwelling).
The brand new movie will unfold a bit additional out with much more time spent on Giedi Prime this time, and scenes set on the planet Kaitain which is the house base of the Corrino Empire the place Emperor Shaddam IV (Christopher Walken) resides:
“In Half Two, you actually dive into the completely different worlds of Dune. We see what the emperor’s world appears like. We go to his planet. We spend plenty of time on Giedi Prime, the Harkonnen planet. We spend plenty of time in Stellan Skarsgård’s [Vladimir Harkonnen] world. Feyd-Rautha [Harkonnen] additionally comes into this one, brilliantly performed by Austin Butler, Elvis. He’s fairly fabulous in it.
All of the worlds get expanded. It was about creating three separate, different-looking worlds and likewise revisiting the Bene Gesserits, the age-old ones with these costumes that nearly appear like Egyptian mummies. I feel it’s visually beautiful, the units, the cinematography and the ideas.”
West provides that she has a private reference to the “Dune” novels as she lived on a houseboat along with her first husband in California’s Sausalito harbor at a time when Herbert would typically go to jot down on a houseboat just some ft away that belonged to his pal and thinker Alan Watts.
