I was super excited to watch a preview screening of Dune: Part Two more than a week before its full cinematic release on 1 March – and I’m sure many fans will be lining up to watch director Denis Villeneuve’s latest sci-fi blockbuster next month.

Although, as the credits rolled on the 166-minute epic, I felt it was more ‘anti-blockbuster’, given it’s far removed from your standard Hollywood summer flick.

Long story short: despite loving Dune: Part One, which I own on 4K Blu-ray (long may it live!), I found Dune: Part Two made me want to put my head in the sand at times. But that’s because I made a critical mistake and, to ensure you don’t do the same, Netflix is your best friend this week because it’s streaming Dune right now – and it’s currently in the streaming service’s top 10. That’s why it’s one of the best streaming services.

Don’t make the same mistake as me having not recently watched the 2021 first part before moving on to the second. Having all the characters fresh in mind and every step of their journey imprinted in your grey matter will really help you make the jump between the two movies, as these standalones throw you straight into the action – there’s no recap or gentle introduction.
