We’ve arrived in 2023, the year when Dune: Part Two will premiere in theaters! On this week’s Dune Talk show, the full crew is finally back together and we’re reacting to the Tim Blake Nelson casting news. Is he portraying that specific character, hmm? And knowing the movie wrapped filming this past December, we look ahead towards the lead-up to its release.
Next, Garin, Johnny, Marcus, and Simon break down all the recent news for HBO Max’s Dune: The Sisterhood TV series—currently filming in Hungary—including casting of Mark Strong, Travis Fimmel, and other talented actors. And finally, we share our differing expectations of Funcom’s Dune: Awakening open world survival MMO, following its The Game Awards teaser trailer.
This podcast (55 minutes) is available below in both video and audio formats. Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!
