DUNE: A Classic Sci-Fi Epic is Reborn in the Official Trailer!

By: John M Jerva

Director Dennis Villeneuve’s reimagining of the classic sci-fi epic Dune is still set to hit cinemas this December and with it, hopefully, audiences will start to come back as the theater chairs are starting to reopen after months of shutdown due to you know what. Fans are keen in seeing what the director will bring to this newest version of the classic novel and 1984 film and now they have their first look as the trailer just dropped today.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), 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.

Helmed by Denis Villeneuve, the film boasts an all-star cast including Timothée Chalamet (The King), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: Rise Of The Skywalker), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame), and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout). Also starring are Stellan Skarsgård (Thor), Dave Bautista (Master Z: The Ip Man Legacy) and Javier Bardem (Skyfall). This is some serious star power here and when the first trailer hits, we will surely be amazed at some breathtaking visuals and dramatic power.

Of course, from an action standpoint, I’m most excited to see how Momoa is utilized and judging from the trailer below, it looks like he will let loose a little. The costumes and the look and style all look sensational and Villeneuve proved with Blade Runner 2049 that he can certainly bring the mood and vibe.

Dune is expected to hit theaters on December 18th and hopefully that’s enough time that things will resume to some sort of normalcy. Check out the full trailer below!
