As the November premiere date inches closer, anticipation builds for Dune: Part Two, the second instalment of Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic, that was once agains shot at ORIGO Studios in Hungary. While there is still suspense surrounding the final cut, insiders seem to have a hint that the preliminary version of Paul Atreides and the Fremen’s epic journey spans over three hours.
The author at World of Reel recently shared insights regarding the length of “Dune: Part Two”. According to Jordan Ruimy, the continuation of the Arrakis saga in Denis Villeneuve‘s version is colossal, with the first cut running approximately 3 hours and 15 minutes. However, Ruimy admits this is not necessarily the final runtime, and there may be additional cuts before the official November release.
Fans of Frank Herbert‘s masterpiece won’t be surprised by the substantial duration, considering that the first part, which adapted roughly the initial third of the book, surpassed two and a half hours. Moreover, the sequel is anticipated to be packed with significantly more action sequences.
“Dune: Part Two” is set to hit local theatres on November 2nd, showcasing a star-studded cast in Denis Villeneuve‘s creation. The impressive lineup includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken, Stellan Skarsgard, Zendaya, Dave Bautista, Léa Seydoux, Austin Butler, and Javier Bardem. The film is sure to bring a breathtaking spectacle that cinema enthusiasts won’t want to miss.
