A 2e Movie better than the first?

Last December, during a press conference for the release of Dune: Part II in South Korea, Denis Villeneuve suggested that the second part of the saga was a “much better film” than the first chapter.

“There is something more alive [dans le deuxième film]», emphasized the director of Quebec.

“I achieved an intensity and a quality of emotion that I hadn't achieved with the first film. I'm not saying the film is perfect, but I'm happier with the second part than the first part. I can’t wait to share it with fans and moviegoers.”

Dune: Part Two will storm theaters across the province on March 1st.
