On Wednesday, January 24 at 7 p.m., Dune: Part One received a special theatrical reissue. For one night, the movie was screened in select IMAX locations across the United States and Canada. Importantly, this event featured an exclusive 10-minute sneak peek at Dune: Part Two!
Now, in early February, likely tied to great demand for this reissue—tickets for the January event sold out within hours in some locations—Warner Bros. has announced that the first movie is also getting a wider domestic re-release starting from February 9 (for around a week). That’s right, even if you didn’t make it in January, you have another opportunity to (re-)watch Dune: Part One on the big screen.
Tickets are available now! In the U.S., check the Dune (2021) IMAX Reissue page on Fandango or at your local theater for availability and showtimes.
What’s Included in the Dune: Part Two Sneak Peek?
The Dune: Part Two sneak peek consists of just over 10 minutes of content. To avoid confusion, although the full first 10 minutes of the movie have already been screened at a few events—including CCXP 2023 this past December—that’s not what is being shown at these Dune IMAX reissue screenings.
Prior to January 24 an outline was revealed and, with our team having attended that event, we confirm that the information is accurate. Prior to the screening there’s a reminder for audiences to stay seated after Dune: Part One, with a video shown of stars Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya introducing the movie.
After the credits roll, a sizzle reel is shown containing cast commentary and exciting footage Dune: Part Two. Next there’s a greeting from director Denis Villeneuve, who introduces the scene where Paul rides a sandworm for the first time. Audiences then experience a special treat of watching the entirety (6.5 minutes) of this visually stunning sequence! The event concludes with a montage, featuring some epic shots from movie’s action sequences.
Our team has shared reactions to the Dune: Part Two sneak peek in a recent episode of Dune Talk, the official podcast of Dune News Net.
