The hugely anticipated movie is based on Frank Herbert’s legendary 1965 science fiction novel. There have been various attempts to bring the authour’s hugelysprawling space opera to the big and small screens. David Lynch’s 1984 epic is regarded a noble failure by many (ourselves included) but the stage and screen are set for a modern master like Denis Villeneuve to finally do justice to this towering story. After soem teaser images it looks like the first trailer will be with us any day now.
Chalamet just connfirmed an August release for the trailer in an adorable chat with a fan.
The fan messaged the young actor and said: “timmy it’s my birthday today… give me some content about dune pls i’m the biggest fan.”
In reply the star simply said: “trailer before sept”.
Combined with his co-star’s recent gushing comments about what she has seen so far, it looks like it’s tie to get very excited.
The first movie is currently scheduled to hit cinemas on December 18.
As for the trailer, the popular wisdom was that it is likely to arrive in cinemas alongside the ererelease of Christopher Nolan’s Inception, itself a teaser for his upcoming new movie Tenet.
Inception will hit UK cinemas on August 12, however it is more logical the Dune trailer will be timed to land with the Inception US release date of August 21.
Either way, the first look at Villeneuve’s vision is almost here and it promises to be spectacular, based on the director’s stunning previous work on Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival.
Dune will give the visionary directory even greater scope to create an extraordinary cinematic experience.
Herbert’s book, the first of a lengthy series, introduces a galaxy of feuding nobles who rule over entire planets.
Arrakis is the greatest prize because it is the only place when the spice melange is produced, which gives the mutated navigators of the Spacing Guild the ability to fold space – the only way to instantly travel across vast distances in a blink of an eye.
Villeneuve has also amassed a wish-list cast which includes Rebecca Ferguson as Paul’s mother. Lady Jessicais a powerful member of the feared Bene Gesserit sisterhood, who possess seemingly supernatural abilities and manipulate galactic politics from the shadows.
The extraordinary cast also includes Oscar Isaac as Paul’s father, Duke Leto Atreides.
Stellan Skarsgard plays his bitter rival Baron Harkonnen, with Charlotte Rampling as the Bene Gesserit leader. Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Jason Momoa and Josh Brolin also star.
