Not to say that a big movie star always moves the needle, but it sure as heck never hurts anything. To that end, Villeneuve put together one of the most impressive ensembles we’ve seen in years for “Dune” — one that got even bigger with the sequel. Not only do we have tested stars such as Rebecca Ferguson (“Mission: Impossible”), Stellan Skarsgard (“Good Will Hunting”), Dave Bautista (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men”), and Christopher Walken (“Catch Me If You Can”) on board, but the filmmaker also wisely included lots of younger actors who he sees as “the new power” in Hollywood.

That includes Timothee Chalamet leading the way as Paul Atreides, with Zendaya (“Euphoria”), Austin Butler (“Elvis”), and Florence Pugh (“Midsommar”) along for the ride. Zendaya starred in one of the biggest movies ever (“Spider-Man: No Way Home”) since the release of the first film, while Butler went on to be nominated for an Oscar. Chalamet, meanwhile, is coming off of “Wonka,” which has made more than $600 million globally. It’s a stacked cast full of actors capable of generating interest. Signing those checks paid off for the studio.

“Dune: Part Two” is in theaters now. You can read the film’s official synopsis below.

“Dune: Part Two” 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. 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.
