After a brief return to IMAX last month, Denis Villeneuve’s first Dune movie is set to return to theaters for one week ahead of the sequel’s release.

Collider has reported that 2021’s Dune will return to theaters for one week beginning on February 9 and will feature an exclusive look at the upcoming sequel, Dune: Part Two. The sequel is then set to debut in theaters on March 1, so fans will have to wait a couple of weeks after their screenings to see the follow-up.

Timothée Chalamet leads the Dune cast as Paul Atreides, with Oscar Isaac and Rebecca Ferguson portraying his parents, Duke Leto Atreides and Lady Jessica, respectively. The cast also includes Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Javier Bardem as Stilgar, and Zendaya as Chani. Stellan Skarsgård plays Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, leader of House Harkonnen, while Dave Bautista portrays his nephew Glossu Rabban.

“It will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family,” reads the synopsis for the sequel. “Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.”

Will there be more Dune movies?

While Dune: Part Two will conclude Villeneuve’s adaptation of Herbert’s first Dune novel, the franchise won’t stop there. Villeneuve has already revealed that he has plans to adapt the second novel in the series, Dune: Messiah, into a feature film.
