The 2 hour 46 minute "Dune: Part Two" picks up where the first movie left off with Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) — heir to the fallen House Atreides dynasty — is living with the desert-dwelling Fremen people, promising to fight with them and the enchanting Chani (Zendaya) to defy the oppressive rule of House Harkonnen.

Looking to extract revenge for himself and his family and free Arrakis from Harkonnen jurisdiction, Paul must also bear the burden of his powers, destiny and the foreboding 'prophecy' that haunts his visions.

Director Denis Villeneuve has pulled out all the stops to realize his own vision for the blockbusting second chapter, with the budget estimated at 190 million and comprising an all-star ensemble cast that includes the likes of Austin Butler, Rebecca Ferguson, Florence Pugh, Dave Bautista and Christopher Walken. And it appears to have paid dividends for Warner Bros., with the current box office return at over $700 million.

So if you haven't had the opportunity to see this spectacle at the cinema, you can now enjoy it in the comfort of your own home. Here's where to watch "Dune: Part Two" online — no matter where you are in the world.

No streaming service release date has yet been announced in the U.K. for "Dune: Part Two", having only hit cinemas at the start of March.

It's expected that the sequel will land on Sky Cinema when it does eventually hit U.K. streaming. This would be a change to the first film, as you can watch "Dune: Part One" online on Netflix in the British Isles.

As in the U.K., "Dune: Part Two" isn't available on any streaming services Down Under.

Instead, you'll need to rent or buy it on a VOD platform such as Amazon Prime Video, where it's currently $29.99 to rent and $34.99 to buy.

Traveling to Australia? If you're visiting from a country where this movie is available on a streaming service to which you already subscribe, then you can watch via a VPN. We think the best VPN right now is NordVPN.

Is 'Dune: Part Two' good?

Malcom McMillan, senior writer for Tom's Guide, called "Dune: Part Two" the best film of the year so far when it hit theaters at the start of March.

In his "Dune: Part Two" review, he lauded the "incredible" sound design, "sheer majesty of the technical aspects of this film," and called it "an incredible epic on a massive scale with unparalleled technical prowess on display".

"The movie draws an easy comparison to another science fiction epic in this regard," said Malcolm. "The original "Star Wars" movie and the original trilogy it spawned have this same balance of charm and lightheartedness set against the backdrop of a brutal war for the fate of the galaxy."

Performance-wise, Malcolm gave particular props to Austin Butler, although thought that the "Elvis" actor was underutilized. "But again, this is a nitpick and it's a shortcoming that gets washed away by the technical brilliance of this film.

"If it's not the best movie of the 21st century, it's certainly in the conversation."
