The film is slated to be released on March 1, 2024, in theaters and IMAX nationwide and internationally on 28 February 2024.

Hans Zimmer‘s Dune: Part Two soundtrack is the follow-up to his widely acclaimed score album and two accompanying releases from 2021’s Dune, which earned Zimmer an Academy Award.

Zimmer approached the score as a continuation of the first film and said, “I never left the world of ‘Dune.’ In fact, I think Denis thought I was quite mad because I kept writing after we finished the first movie. But because I knew the story, I knew the book, I knew what was coming our way.

“And in fact, a lot of the main themes in this second movie were written at the end of the first film, before Denis started shooting. It felt important to carry on writing when we were still in the same spirit, the same frame of mind.”

Villeneuve tasked Zimmer with composing a key piece of music for the new film, creating a soundtrack for the romance between Paul (Timothée Chalamet) and Chani (Zendaya). Villeneuve said, “I wanted Hans to write something unforgettable for Chani. A love theme, the love of Paul for Chani.

“I wanted something heartbreaking, and the most beautiful love theme ever written, and honestly, I think he did it with the track ‘A Time of Quiet Between the Storms.’ It’s one of the most beautiful scores he’s written. I remember when I first listened to it, I was in tears.”
