Los Angeles, October 27 - Denis Villeneuve's epic sci-fi "Dune" is getting its much talk about a sequel. The success of Part 1 at the global box office and on HBO Max has prompted Legendary Pictures to officially greenlit Part 2, which will again be directed by Villeneuve and will open only in theaters on October 20, 2023.

Legendary Pictures took to Twitter and thanked fans for showering love on Part 1 and said that it's "excited to continue the journey" with Part 2. "This is only the beginning... Thank you to those who have experienced @dunemovie so far, and those who are going in the days and weeks ahead. We're excited to continue the journey!", the Studio said.





"Dune - Part 2" was always on the cards the way it ended. However, there were always concerns that a high concept sci-fi film might not attract audiences that would justify multiple movies. But recently, WarnerMedia CEO, Ann Sarnoff had almost confirmed the sequel by saying to Deadline, "Will we have a sequel to Dune? If you watch the movie, you see how it ends. I think you pretty much know the answer to that".

Despite all the hints and possibilities of a sequel, "Dune" was still needed to perform at the box office and on HBO Max to get greenlit and it hasn't disappointed at all. Among all Warner Bros. films in 2021, "Dune" has the best start at the box office with $41 million in the 3-day opening weekend in North America.



At the back of strong box office performance, "Dune" also done reasonably well on the streamer, HBO Max, on which, 1.9 million US households watched this movie in the 4-day weekend. At the global box office, Dune has grossed over $220 million so far.

Produced by Legendary Pictures, Dune stars an ensemble cast including Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.
