Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Gets New Trailer & Character Posters
Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated new movie adaptation of the classic Frank Herbert sci-fi novel ‘Dune’ has landed a brand new trailer, along with a set of character posters for the film, which premieres this October worldwide.
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.
The film stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet (‘Call Me by Your Name’, ‘Little Women’), Rebecca Ferguson (‘Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep’, ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’), Oscar Isaac (the ‘Star Wars’ franchise) Oscar nominee Josh Brolin (‘Milk’, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’), Stellan Skarsgård (HBO’s ‘Chernobyl’, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’), Dave Bautista (the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ films, ‘Avengers: Endgame’), Stephen McKinley Henderson (‘Fences’, ‘Lady Bird’), Zendaya (‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’, HBO’s ‘Euphoria’), Chang Chen (‘Mr. Long’, ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’), David Dastmalchian (‘Blade Runner 2049’, ‘The Dark Knight’), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’, Netflix’s ‘Sex Education’), with Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling (’45 Years’, ‘Assassin’s Creed’), with Jason Momoa (‘Aquaman’, HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’), and Oscar winner Javier Bardem (‘No Country for Old Men’, ‘Skyfall’).
