Warner Bros. Pictures released the trailer for the highly anticipated film, Dune. Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve who worked on brilliant films like Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 took the helm for this silver screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s literary series. The original Dune novel was written in 1965 and focuses on a futuristic feudal space-based civilization.
Set in the year 10191, the young protagonist Paul Atreides is a member of a family responsible for the planet Arrakis. Though the planet is an inhospitable desert wasteland, it is rich in “melange” or “the spice.” The spice is extremely rare, and extends one’s life as well as augmenting and enhancing the user’s cognitive and mental abilities.
The film stars Oscar winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men,” “Skyfall”), Jason Mamoa (“Aquaman,” “Game of Thrones”), Zendaya (“Spider-man:Homecoming” and many more. Dune is scheduled to be released in theaters on December 18th, 2020. The trailer looks awesome, check it out below.
