First trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s new Dune movie!

Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049”) directs Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Dune,” the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name. A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel 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—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Villeneuve’s Dune adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel will split the book into two movies. Check out the first trailer for the new Dune movie, which features a number of iconic scenes from Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel, including Paul’s prophetic dream,  as well as the Reverend Mother testing Paul before he departs for Arrakis, and the trailer ends with a glimpse of one of Dune‘s iconic Sandworms! I think Villeneuve is a great director, Frank Herbert’s Dune has always been one of my favourite Sci-Fi novels as well, so really excited about this new movie version!

Directed by Denis Villeneuve from a script he also co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts, Legendary Pictures’ Dune stars Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Zendaya as Chani, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, Stellan Skarsgård as Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, Javier Bardem as Stilgar, Chang Chen as Dr. Wellington Yueh, Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Dr. Liet Kynes, Charlotte Rampling as Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam, Dave Bautista Glossu Rabban, David Dastmalchian as Piter De Vries, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Stephen Henderson as Thufir Hawat, and Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck.The film is slated to be released in theaters on December 18, 2020.
