Dune: Part Two has been a long time coming. It wasn’t even a sure thing when the first film was greenlit, and only became a guarantee when the first film opened in 2021 to triumphant reviews and box-office success.

If you’ve been desperate to see how Denis Villeneuve is going to complete his adaptation of Frank Herbert’s epic sci-fi tome, the new issue of Total Film is the perfect thing to tide you over until the film’s imminent release. The latest cover story features an in-depth primer on Dune 2, featuring exclusive new interviews with Villeneuve and members of his incredible ensemble, including Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin and Stellan Skarsgård.

Elsewhere in the issue, you’ll also find expansive issues with the likes of Jack Black, editor extraordinaire Thelma Schoonmaker and Jessie Buckley. Plus, Drive-Away Dolls, Madame Web, Spaceman, Damsel and Diablo Cody’s screenwriting tips. Plus, all the news, reviews and regulars you expect.

She’s a screenwriting superstar who rocketed to fame on her very first project when she won an Oscar for Juno.
