The wait is nearly over, in 2 weeks time when the Atreides family will once againbe on our cinema screens when Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune arrives in UK cinemas. Tonight Warner Bros tease us all one last time before we watch in awe with one final Trailer and boy it’s epic plus it has those giant sandworms!
If you are unaware of the classic books this film is based on, we follow Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), son of an noble family who assume control of Arrakis the desert planet. The planet is the only one able to produce the valuable spice commodity Spice Melange that lets you travel in space. After his family is betrayed, Paul has to lead a group of rebels to regain control.
The ghosts of David Lynch‘s totally bonkers 1984 version look like they will be purged. We do love his version, overall critically his version critically was an embarassing mess. Lynch himself hates it, Villeneuve‘s version is a totally different beast. It’s epic and going by the early reviews, it’s an immersive experience which is amazingly only the first part of the epic story! We’re ready are you?
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.
The film also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Chang Chen, David Dastmalchian, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.
Dune will arrive in UK and Irish cinemas from Thursday 21st October.
