What We Know So Far About Dune Part Two

Dune was only released a week ago but it is already on track to be one of Warner Bros.’s most successful films of 2021. It had the largest opening weekend of any Warner Bros. film since the release of Joker in 2019. Dune also topped Zack Snyder’s Justice League in viewership on HBO Max during its opening weekend.

Given Dune’s quick success and the fact that it is part one of a two-part series, Warner Bros. has revealed a sequel to be in development. Dune Part Two will continue where Part One left off and presumably adapt the latter half of the book. There isn’t much information regarding the sequel yet, but there are a few things that are confirmed or anticipated.

 

Check out this review of Dune to learn why its an engrossing and faithful adaptation.

 

The Cast

The core cast of Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, and Javier Bardem is expected to return along with Denis Villeneuve as director. Despite the fact that Chalamet’s character Paul Atreides was the protagonist in the first film, Zendaya’s Chani will take center stage in the sequel.

 

Dune Sequel

Dune Part Two will be getting an exclusive release in theaters. Warner Bros. has been releasing all of their films this year simultaneously on HBO Max and in theaters. However, after 2021, HBO Max and theatrical co-releases will no longer be a part of WB’s strategy. Dune Part Two will be getting an exclusive release in theaters. The release date is currently set for October 2023, although it is possible that this date will change.

 

HBO Spinoff Series

Warner Bros. has stated that they are behind Dune 100% and they have proved it with this announcement of a sequel and a spinoff prequel series for HBO Max. The series titled, Dune: Sisterhood, will follow the illustrious order of women known as the Bene Gesserit who influence galactic politics and wield supernatural abilities. A release date has not been set for the prequel series but Diane Ademu-John will be the showrunner on the series.

 

Dune Trilogy?

Denis Villeneuve is adapting Frank Herbert’s Dune novel into two films. However, Frank Herbert also wrote a sequel to Dune titled, The Messiah of Dune. Villeneuve has already expressed interest in adapting the sequel into a film and creating a trilogy. With the sequel being released in 2 years and the first movie only beginning its box office run, only time will tell if a trilogy is possible.

Dune is currently in theaters and available to watch on HBO Max.

 

Here Are The Scariest Short Horror Films on YouTube

While watching a horror movie is fun, sometimes you just don’t have the time or attention span to invest in a full-length feature. Horror short films are perfect alternatives because oftentimes they provide an even better experience than horror features.

With Halloween around the corner, people are looking for scares more and more. The great thing about horror short films is that you get to the scares much quicker than full-length films and they are just as, if not more than, effective. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 scariest horror short films you can watch on Youtube. These films are not for the faint of heart, they are both terrifying and haunting.

 

10 Best Horror Shorts on YouTube

 

10. The Cat With Hands

Cats are generally thought of as being conniving and devious. This short film takes that idea to a whole new level. The film is about a fictional, dark folktale of a cat who wants to be human. Robert Morgan was inspired to create the short film because of a nightmare his sister had as a child.

 

 

9. Peephole

Simple short films are sometimes the most effective. Peephole is a nearly 4-minute short horror film about a man who answers a knock at the door. Jaron Henrie-McCrea directed and wrote the short film with Tim Lueke as the only actor.

 

 

8. Tickle Monster

His House, created by Remi Weekes, is one of the best horror movies on Netflix. Before His House, Weekes wrote and directed The Tickle Monster. The horror short film is about a night that takes an eerie turn when it’s casually revealed the young couple is in the presence of an unusual bogeyman.

 

 

7. Still Life

Still Life has everything that makes a great horror short film. It’s unique, compelling, and very eerie. The film is about a pill-popping, over-caffeinated driver who enters a strange and desolate town that offers very little in the form of human kindness. The film was created in 2005, but it remains one of the greatest horror shorts ever produced.

 

 

6. Vicious

What’s more eerie than returning to your dark apartment alone? Returning to your dark apartment that is mysteriously unlocked. This short film taps into that fear. The short film is about a young woman who comes home to find her front door unlocked and suspects she might not be alone in the house.

 

 

5. Pleasant Inn

When it comes to horror short films, animation isn’t the norm. Although, animation opens the door for a lot of creativity that often results in stunning ideas. Pleasant Inn is the best example of this. The horror short is about a motel that becomes a setting for survival against a monstrous visitor. Pleasant Inn has terrifying visuals and a simple but effective premise.

 

 

4. Horror Story ANIMATED – “Don’t stop for gas at night”

Now getting into the top of our list, these are some of the scariest short films we’ve found online. This short is more of a short story than a film. The story is based on a true event narrated on YouTube. A YouTuber took the narration and created an animation to go with it. The story follows a woman who, after her graveyard shift, has a terrifying experience at a gas station.

 

3. Don’t Move

Don’t Move throws you right into the action after the use of a ouija board goes terribly wrong. The short is about six friends who accidentally unleash a demonic force that attempts to tear all of them to pieces. The film feels like a scene taken right out of a full-length film.

 

 

2. 2am: The Smiling Man

Walking home alone at 2am is never fun. This short film exacerbates that fact. 2am: The Smiling Man is about a man who is walking home alone when he notices another man walking with an eerie smile on his face. Out of all of the films on our list, this may be one of the creepiest.

 

 

1. I Heard It Too

I Heard It Too is an 8-minute short film that was based on a two-sentence horror story. Tim Knight and Matt Sears created this short to make you think twice before beckoning to someone’s call. The film is about a young girl and her mother who face an evil that is frighteningly familiar.

 

Can You Sit Through All of These Short Horror Films?

Horror short films are easily consumable and loads of fun. Although, it can be tough to find high-quality short films based on a search, readers can be assured that all of the shorts in this list are of utmost quality. This list of shorts allows you to experience the frightening moments without the cliches. This Halloween, we hope that these 10 short films give you the hair raising experiences the holiday is all about.

The Netflix series seems to take a similar approach to the series.

Despite the confusion surrounding The Sandman’s release date, the series is set to be released in 2022.

Movies Are Created To Imitate Real Life

The human mind is a very complex thing. It can be difficult to understand how other people think or why they behave the way they do, but that’s the beautiful thing about movies. Movies create empathy. They help us understand people we normally never would. Our complex psyches make up who we are as people which is why movies about psychology can be so captivating to watch. Seeing mental illnesses and personality disorders depicted through characters in movies makes us reflect on our own lives and those who struggle with mental illness in real life. These 13 movies may humble you, entertain you, but surely they will make you more empathetic.

Scream 5 centers around a new killer who has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from Woodboro’s deadly past. Based on the trailer, we will see Sidney, Gale, and Dewey being consultants to a new group of teenagers, instructing them on how to survive the new killer.

Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox Arquette, and David Arquette return to play their iconic roles along with Marley Shelton, who played a police officer in Scream 4. Newcomers to the series include Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar.
