Early Critical Acclaim

Critics who have had the opportunity to preview 'Dune: Part Two' have been overwhelmingly positive in their reactions. They have praised the film for its awe-inspiring visuals, epic storytelling, and masterful direction by Denis Villeneuve.

Cinematic Event of the Year


With the lukewarm reception of recent highly anticipated releases, 'Dune: Part Two' is poised to become a box office phenomenon and a cinematic event of the year. Early reviews have firmly established it as a frontrunner for the top spot.

Critics have lauded the film for its visionary moments, transformative performances, and riveting action sequences. Zendaya's role has been highlighted as particularly standout, with comparisons to TWO TOWERS-level mastery of battle sequences. 

Check out the first views on the sequel below:

Among the others who have seen early screenings of Dune: Part Two, Eric Eisenberg of Cinema Blend wrote on Twitter / X: "Having watched #DunePartTwo, I can say I have ridden a sandworm. It's a magical experience, and the faithful adaptation fans have been waiting for (albeit w/ some smart changes). A fascinating examination of zealotry & postcolonial politics wrapped in a breathtaking blockbuster."

Griffin Schiller from FilmSpeak wrote, "'Dune: Part Two' is not only Denis’s magnum opus; it’s the definitive sci-fi epic of a generation. A tragic tale of blind fanaticism and corruption. A spectacular, soulful, awe-inspiring masterclass of aesthetics and mood beautifully echoing Paul’s turbulent journey. Left me speechless!”

“Villeneuve crafts some truly VISIONARY moments. Austin Butler gives a truly transformative performance (and not talking makeup either). Very moving ending. A wee bit long? Yes. Did I forget I saw it the next day? Yes. Still, gonna be massive.” wrote the Playlist’s Gregory Ellwood.

Gizmodo and io9's Germain Lussier wrote: "Denis Villeneuve sticks the landing with #DunePartTwo, a fascinating, terrifying character study told on a gloriously grand sci-fi scale. Timothée Chalamet & Zendaya are INCREDIBLE in it, the set pieces are jaw-dropping, & the supporting cast elevates all the rest. It's great."

As per Fresh Fiction’s Courtney Howard, “Dune 2 is jaw-dropping, breathtaking & wildly exhilarating. It’s an adrenaline rush to the head & heart, soaring in its spectacle-driven action sequences as much as it sings in its refined, evocative stillness.Timothée Chalamet & Zendaya turn in singular work.”

Inverse editor Hoai-Tran Bui believes the film is even more immense than the first, yet significantly more intimate. “Denis Villeneuve manages to streamline the more alienating second half of the book into a riveting, action-packed epic. TWO TOWERS-level mastery of battle sequences. Zendaya is the star.”

Courtney Howard, of Variety and The AV Club, shared huge praise for the film as well: "#DunePartTwo/ #Dune2 is jaw-dropping, breathtaking & wildly exhilarating. It’s an adrenaline rush to the head & heart, soaring in its spectacle-driven action sequences as much as it sings in its refined, evocative stillness. Timothée Chalamet & Zendaya turn in singular work.

Other early reactions called the film "a monumental cinematic achievement", singled it out as a "giant epic, a masterclass of crafts" and praised the filmmakers for "never fail[ing] to immerse in its world".

The Hollywood SAG-Aftra strike caused major delays for the highly anticipated sequel, but fans are thrilled that the film is finally here. 'Dune: Part Two' picks up immediately after the events of the first film, with Paul Atreides seeking vengeance against those responsible for his family's murder, potentially shaping the universe's destiny.

In conclusion, 'Dune: Part Two' is set to be a cinematic spectacle that will exceed expectations and captivate audiences worldwide. As the release date draws nearer, anticipation continues to build for what promises to be an unforgettable cinematic experience.
