The prophecy has spoken, and it says we’re all in big trouble. The last trailer came out of the sand for Denis Villeneuve’s film Dune, who sees Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) confront two of the greatest enemies his family has ever known: Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård) and himself.
Warner Bros. finally released a new trailer for Dune, the starry sci-fi spectacular based on the award-winning novel by Frank Herbert. Chalamet plays Paul Atreides, the only son of Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) and Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac). He is on the verge of inheriting his father’s empire, which includes Arrakis, a tough, merciless desert planet which houses the most important substance in the known world.
Paul spent years training to become the leader of House Atreides, while also being under the tutelage of Lady Jessica, a member of the Gesserit very powerful order – only to see him crumble before his eyes as the evil Baron Harkonnen and his nephew Glossu (Dave Bautista) start a war for control of Arrakis. It’s a battle that brings him to the front door (or dunes) of the Fremen, the native inhabitants of the planet. Alongside leader Fremen Stilgar (Javier Bardem) and warrior Chani (Zendaya), Paul fights back to save the planet and its inhabitants, while discovering a larger fate that could change the very fabric of the universe.
Dune also stars Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Charlotte Rampling as Reverend Mother Mohiam (aka Gaius Helen Mohiam), Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Stephen McKinley Henderson as Thufir Hawat, Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Dr Liet Kynes, Chang Chen as Dr Wellington Yueh, and David Dastmalchian like the evil Mentat Piter de Vries. It was originally scheduled for release on November 20, 2020, then was postponed for a few weeks until December 18, 2020. Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, Dune was further delayed to October 22. It will be released simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max, although it is something Villeneuve spoke out against when it was first announced.
