Published: 5 March 2024

Leave it to the Internet to turn the biggest movie of the year into a meme factory. Over the past few days, the world wide web has been ablaze with any and all wisecracks pertaining to little film called Dune: Part Two. The much-anticipated sequel stars Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, a warrior who unites with Chani (Zendaya), the (literal) woman of his dreams, to defend the Fremen and defeat the evil House Harkonnen. The sequel also features newcomers that include Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha; Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan and Christopher Walken as the Emperor Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV, the 81st representative of House Corrino. The film premiered in theatres and has amassed a kingly sum to the tune of USD97 million at the global box office.

The full synopsis is far more complicated (we highly suggest that you simply start reading Frank Herbert's Dune novels), but I’ll spare you the details. That isn't what you came here for. If you want to learn more about Dune, you can read up on it here. Also, here for those fashion-savvy readers. If you’re interested in what the Internet has to say about director Denis Villeneuve’s latest feat, then stick around. Because there's no better way than to keep your finger on the beating pulse of pop culture than to see what others have meme-fied.

Below, Esquire has rounded up the best Dune: Part Two memes so far. Below, you'll everything from red carpet jokes to sandworm shuffles—and, yes, the viral Duneussy. (Don't ask, OK?) You'll also see an individual riding a makeshift sandworm through an AMC theatre. Take from that information what you will.

Before we part, beware: there are some spoilers ahead. If you haven’t seen Dune: Part Two, scroll at your own risk. We'll see you on the other side.
