New Trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s DUNE

The latest adaptation of the sci-fi epic comes to UK/ROI cinemas in October.

Frank Herbert's 1965 tome Dune is one of the most influential works in the sci-fi genre. In 1984 director David Lynch had a crack at adapting Herbert's novel for the big screen, and while Lynch's movie has its defenders, it's generally agreed that film is an intriguing mess at best. Even worse was a 2000 TV mini-series that devoted six hours to translating Herbert's work.

The latest attempt to bring Dune to the screen comes courtesy of director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) and screenwriters Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts.

This all-star version features Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem among its ensemble cast.

Dune is in UK/ROI cinemas from October 21st.

Check out the new trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

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.
