The lord of the rings trilogy was a lot cheaper than some people assume.What Peter Jackson did with LOTR was rare. For a studio to throw in another 100 million for a dune 2 before knowing if the first movie will do well is a lot of risk, and they clearly decided against it.
The better the revenue is for dune the better investment we get in the franchise, not just a dune 2 but perhaps more.
Those fucking hobbit movies were terrible money pits!
