The count-down has already started. If early in the week we got the introduction character posters for some of the cast in the movie, now Warner Bros. Pictures has released an almost 4 minutes long trailer with never-seen footage of one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune (2021).
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune (2021) 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 stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet (Lady Bird (2017)), Rebecca Ferguson (Doctor Sleep (2019)), Oscar Isaac (Ex Machina (2014)), Oscar nominee Josh Brolin (Planet Terror (2007)), Stellan Skarsgård (Exorcist: The Beginning (2004)), Dave Bautista (Army of the Dead (2021)), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Lady Bird (2017)), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019)), Chang Chen (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)), David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad (2021)), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)), with Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling (Assassin’s Creed (2016)), with Jason Momoa (Aquaman (2018)), and Oscar winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men (2007)).
Villeneuve directed Dune (2021) from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts and Villeneuve and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert.

Gains, Jon Spaihts, Thomas Tull, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, and Kim Herbert.
