Last chance to watch epic sci-fi film on Netflix before 'near-perfect' sequel hits cinemas

Last chance to watch epic sci-fi film on Netflix before 'near-perfect' sequel hits cinemas

The film has only been on Netflix for a matter of weeks

One of the latest blockbusters to arrive on Netflix is already getting ready to say goodbye. And it is that soon that you've just days left to catch it if you have yet to watch.

Netflix welcomes new content on a weekly basis, sometimes so often it can be by the day.

Just this month alone has seen the arrival of the critically-acclaimed One Day that has gone down so well with audiences it's already being re-watched by many.

There's also been Lover Stalker Killer for fans of true crime and the latest season of Sunderland 'Til I Die for the sports-mad viewers.

And then for fans of Oppenheimer there's a new documentary that shows 'what the film left out'.

Last month, Netflix welcomed one of Hollywood's biggest flicks which boasts one of the most star-studded casts in recent years.

No, we're most definitely not talking about Cats.

Netflix secured the streaming rights to Dune: Part One with it arriving on the streaming platform back on 9 January.

The cast for the sci-fi is mega, with Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem and Zendaya all appearing in the 155 minute epic.

It's based on science fiction novel of the same name, written by America author Frank Herbert.

Dune: Part One focuses on Paul Atreides (Chalamet), a gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding.

He's tasked with travelling to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet's exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence, only those who can conquer their own fear will survive.

Dune: Part One was released back in 2021 and scored 83 percent with critics over on Rotten Tomatoes.

Audiences loved it even more so, giving it a solid 90 percent.

"Denis Villeneuve's Dune looks and sounds amazing -- and once the (admittedly slow-building) story gets you hooked, you'll be on the edge of your seat for the sequel," one Rotten Tomatoes reviewer posted.

Despite only being on Netflix for the last seven weeks, it's already preparing to say adieu.

Watch the trailer for part two below:

Sadly for viewers, it'll leave Netflix on Thursday, 29 February. Less than one week to watch it, folks.

The timing seems somewhat planned, given Dune: Part Two hits cinemas on 1 March. The cast has been travelling the world for its premieres, wearing some rather unique outfits along the way.

With even more Hollywood big-hitters coming for the sequel - say hello to Austin Butler, Christopher Walken and Florence Pugh - Warner Bros. has doubled-down when it comes to names hopefully equating to bums on theatre seats.

Critics who have had early viewings of the sequel can't get enough, giving it an almost perfect 98 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

The sequel's timing is enough to make you view the last two months of Dune on Netflix as an advert of sorts to entice even more people to come to the cinema for its sequel.

Whether that's people re-watching Part One or viewing it for the first time. Either way, enjoy it while you can.
