“Dune: Part Two”: It’s a record! We know how many people saw the film in Poland

“Dune: Part Two” is one of the most anticipated films of 2024. Epic spectacle Denis Villenueve It officially premiered on February 28 and has since grossed $178.5 million in theaters, with more than half of that amount – $97 million to be exact – coming from ticket sales outside the United States.

The film was watched in Poland over the weekend 446 thousand viewers (almost twice as much as in the case of the first part). This is the best opening of a movie this year!

With a result of over $2.7 million in box office Poland was also in the… ninth place in the world. The presence of our country in the top ten of the ranking of countries where “Dune: Part Two” sells best is a huge success and proof that Poles love Denis Villenueve’s original vision.

“Dune: Part Two” follows Paul Atreides’ impressive journey as he forges an alliance with Chani and the Fremen. At the same time, he goes on the warpath, burning with the desire for revenge on the conspirators who led to the downfall of his family. Faced with a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, Paul wants to prevent a tragic future that only he can predict.

We will see him again in the main role Timothee Chalamet, who reprises the role of Paul Atreides in the spectacular production. “In the first film, Paul Atreides was a student. In the second one, we will see him become a leader,” the star revealed. In the sequel to “Dune” the following will also return to their roles: Zendaya, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling and Javier Bardem. The new faces will include: Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Christopher Walker, Léa Seydoux and Anya Talor-Joy.

Both parts of “Dune” made by Villenueve are adaptations of the famous novel by Frank Herbert. The director immediately decided that two films should be made, because the novel was too large to fit the events described in one into one. But this became possible only because the first part received great ratings from viewers and critics. The second part of the production is one of the most anticipated films of 2023. It was originally scheduled to hit theaters on November 3, 2023. However, due to strikes in Hollywood, the premiere of the production had to be postponed.
