Denis Villeneuve’s Dune was already a pretty epic spectacle in its own right. But the trailer for the continuation (not quite a sequel; the first film only adapted the first half of Frank Herbert’s novel, while this movie adapts the rest) took like it takes things to a whole new level, with epic sci-fi battle scenes featuring warriors, ornithopters, and giant sandworms plowing through the dessert.

The movie was pushed back during the summer’s writers and actor strikes, but now it seems (we hope) like it will arrive in theaters on its current schedule next spring. If you dug the first movie, I can’t imagine not wanting to see the end of the story, which is once again directed by Villeneuve and features an all-star cast that includes Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, and Javier Bardem, along with new stars Christopher Walken and Florence Pugh, both of whom are revealed for the first time in the new trailer for this Dune — watch it below.
