The Fighting with My Family star was present for the promotional event of Dune: Part Two with almost all the other cast members of the film, including Rebecca Ferguson. During the star-studded premiere, the cast of the second installment of Dune was seen in an uncanny dressing theme. 

While talking to Entertainment Tonight, during the same event, Florence Pugh stated, "I've just started my next movie, my next Marvel movie, Thunderbolts." 

She further stressed on the same, while also expressing her hard work and time management skills saying, "I feel so-I mean-honored that I’ve been able to basically do the most bizarre press tour for both movies (referring to Dune: Part Two and Oppenheimer) at the same time and I've just started my next movie.” 


“But I managed to squeeze this one in, so I feel very grateful that I've managed to juggle all of them at the same time," Pugh stated as she didn't believe she could make it for the premiere.
