Warner Bros has debuted a new trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s visually spectacular reimaging of ‘Dune.’ We reviewed the film at its Venice world premiere and you can read our glowing review here.
The story follows Paul whose noble family accepts control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only planet capable of producing the highly valuable resource known as the spice melange which allows for space travel, control of Arrakis is highly contested amongst the noble families.
When the Atreides are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship to nature as a betrayed Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s control of Arrakis.
Timothee Chalamet takes the lead as Paul, Oscar Isaac and Rebecca Ferguson as Paul’s parents, Zendaya as love interest Chani, Javier Bardem as the Fremen leader Stilgar, Stellan Skarsgard as the villain Baron Harkonnen with Dave Bautista as his murderous nephew Raban, and Charlotte Rampling as the Reverend Mother Mohiam.
Part 1 of the sci-fi epic is Directed by Villeneuve who co-wrote the screenplay alongside Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts is accompanied by a thunderous score from Hans Zimmer.
