Timothée Chalamet (Paul Atreides) and Zendaya (Chani) will return to star in the movie, alongside the return of Rebecca Ferguson (Lady Jessica Atreides), Javier Bardem (Stilgar), Josh Brolin (Gurney Halleck), Stellan Skarsgård (Baron Vladimir Harkonnen), Dave Bautista (Glossu Rabban Harkonnen), Charlotte Rampling (Reverend Mother Mohiam) and Stephen McKinley Henderson (Thufir Hawat).

But new to the franchise is Austin Butler, and fans have been blown away by his rather unexpected transformation in the trailer.

Butler takes on the role of Feyd Rautha, whom Villeneuve has described as an 'Olympic sword master crossed with a psychotic serial killer.'

The Elvis star, whose character is the younger nephew of the villainous Baron Harkonnen, is completely unrecognisable with a bald head, a lack of eyebrows and incredibly pale skin.

Taking to Twitter, fans were quick to share their thoughts, with one writing: "And somehow austin butler is still sexy bald idk what to tell y’all."

Another added: "Bald austin butler could definitely be a judge holden for a blood meredian film," while someone else said: "Austin Butler in DUNE: PART II.... completely bald and pale. Looks extremely menacing and almost monstrous."

Based on Frank Herbert’s seminal novel, Dune 2 has a script from Villeneuve and Jon Spaihts, with the official synopsis reading: "A boy becomes the Messiah of nomads on a desert planet that has giant worms that protect a commodity called Spice.

"Spice changes people into travelers, mystics and madmen. What price will he pay to become the new ruler of their universe?"

Speaking at CinemaCon last week, as per the Hollywood Reporter, Villeneuve said of the sequel: "Part One is more of a contemplative movie. Part Two is an action-packed, epic war movie.

"It is much more dense. We went to all new locations. I didn’t want a feeling of repetition. It’s all new sets. Everything is new.”
