The latest movie from Denis Villeneuve is called Dune and finally got a trailer. The lead role in the film is for Timothée Chalamet. He plays alongside Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgård, Javier Bardem and Jason Momoa, among others.
Movie buffs again have something to look forward to because Dune, the latest film from Denis Villeneuve, has gotten a first trailer. In it we get a look at the impressive film full of great actors for the first time.
Dune is the first film from the Dune-saga, Frank Herbert’s six-part science fiction book series set on the desert planet of Arrakis in the year 10191. The first part features Paul Atreides, played by Timothée Chalamet. The son of Duke Leto Atreides I (Oscar Isaac) and Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), Paul is the heir to the Atreides family that rules the planet Caladan.
Jessica is part of a human breeding program, which meant she should have had a daughter, who would later father a son with Feyd-Rautha, a cousin of Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård). That son would then become the long-awaited Kwisatz Haderach, a person with extraordinary powers, who, among other things, can see into the future. But because Leto and Jessica have a son, he must immediately become the Kwisatz Haderach. And to do that, he has to undergo rigorous training in order to gain control over his metabolism, cultivate enhanced senses and learn various martial arts.
When Paul is 15 years old, he is sent to the planet Arrakis by his parents. That is a desert planet, and so is it the dune is called. On that planet there is a wealth for the taking, in other words melange the spice. This is a drug that has life-extending, mind-expanding and sometimes deadly powers. But because of this, the drug is also highly sought after by other peoples of the universe. So it will not be an easy task for Paul to protect those riches.
Dune is director Denis Villeneuve’s first film since the success of Blade Runner 2049 in 2017. Villeneuve has already made several successful and especially diverse films in his career. This includes the science fiction film Arrival, the crime thriller Prisoners and the psychological thriller Enemy.
In front of Dune Villeneuve worked again with film composer Hans Zimmer, who was also responsible for the music in Blade Runner 2049. Zimmer also received an offer for it Tenet from Christopher Nolan, but ultimately chose Dune because he is a fan of the book.
The release of Dune was originally scheduled for November 20, 2020, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, this production was also delayed, causing the film to be postponed to December 18, 2020. However, the film may now be postponed one more time. The trailer does not contain a release date, so it seems that Warner Bros. wants to wait and see how the corona pandemic will be by then.
