Dune: Part Two hits digital storefronts in SA this week

  • Less than a month since its cinematic debut, Dune: Part Two is coming to digital stores.
  • Storefronts for Apple and Microsoft reports that the title will be available for purchase on 16th April.
  • The film is still being screened in cinemas locally and abroad and has made $700 million so far at the box office.

Little over a month after its cinematic debut, Dune Part Two is coming to digital storefronts this week.

In South Africa, you will be able to buy the film through Apple iTunes for R199.99 with an expected release date of 16th April. The Microsoft Store is more specific stating that the film will become available on 16th April at 6:00AM.

We expect the film to come to the likes of Google Movies and TV sometime on Tuesday as well.

Dune: Part Two is the conclusion to Denis Villeneuve’s two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. We pick up where the first half of the story left off with Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) avoiding his destiny at all costs only for it to come looking for him.

The film brings several new characters to the mix while also giving Chani (Zendaya) more screen time and a bigger role to play.

While it clocks in at nearly three hours, every second of this film is excellent, yes, even the politics. Backed by Hans Zimmer’s brilliant score, Villeneuve’s vision is expertly portrayed on screen.

Thankfully, you can still watch Dune: Part Two in cinemas. Ster Kinekor is still hosting IMAX screenings on select days and a number of Nu Metro cinemas also have the film on rotation. We highly recommend you take advantage of these screenings while they’re still available as Dune is one of those movies you have to experience in a large format. Many seem to agree with that sentiment given that Dune: Part Two has made $700 million worldwide. The movie reportedly had a budget of $190 million.

It has been confirmed that a third film is currently in development. While little is known about this film, it’s believed that it will be based on Dune: Messiah, the follow-up to the original novel. However, Villeneuve is currently working on another project, Nuclear War: A Scenario, and he has said in the past that he doesn’t want to rush into a new Dune movie.

We’re excited to watch Dune: Part Two again although we’re more excited about the memes folks will be able to make with HD footage.
