It is clear that Denis Villeneuve is one of the best directors of the 21st century. He has been demonstrating it for several years with all kinds of films, but it has been since he took on Dune that all eyes have been on him. The first part of the story, released in 2021, already made it clear that he was adapting Frank Herbert’s work in a unique way, but everything indicates that the second part surpasses it by far.


The Rotten Tomatoes score of Dune: Part Two is currently at 98%, based on 130 reviews, and the first people who have already had access to the film confirm that it is as good as they say. It is clear that the movie is going to achieve everything it sets out to do, but what is incredible is that it has already surpassed a whopping ten records without even having been released yet.

One record after another

Dune: Part Two has become the highest-rated adaptation of Dune on Rotten Tomatoes, but it is also Denis Villeneuve’s highest-rated project, as well as eight cast members. Only Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, and Florence Pugh have another movie with a higher rating.

The sequel to Dune is described as the story of Paul Atreides once he joins Chani and the Fremen while seeking revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the universe, he must prevent a terrible future.

The next March 15th the movie will be released worldwide, but it is clear that it is one of the most important releases of 2024 and in the science fiction world in general. Everything seems to indicate that Denis Villeneuve has made history again.
