It’s finally here! The first trailer has been released for Denis Villeneuve’s film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune, and holy shit! I was already expecting great things from this film, but Villeneuve’s vision of this story is going to be epic! This movie looks freakin’ awesome, and I can’t wait to see it! And the Sandworms… WOW! I just want to watch the damn thing right now!
The film’s cast includes Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Zendaya as Chani, Stellan Skarsgard as Baron Harkonnen, Javier Bardem as tribe leader Stilgar, Charlotte Rampling as Reverend Mother Mohiam, David Dastmcalchian as Piter De Vries, Chang Chen as Dr. Yueh, Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Liet-Kynes, and Dave Bautista as the Baron’s nephew Rabban.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
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.
Dune is currently slated to hit theaters on December 18th.
Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures also released a special Q&A with the cast and director of Dune led by Frank Herbert superfan Stephen Colbert. You can watch that below.
