The official trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune is out. Warner Bros. Pictures has released a first full look at the upcoming film, a month after the first tease, set to star Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, produced by Legendary Pictures and Villeneuve Films as the first in a planned two-part series.
Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel of the same name roughly covers the first half of the book, introducing a far future of humanity and a hunt for the most valuable substance in the universe known as “the spice,” which is only found on a dangerous desert planet called Arrakis, extending human life, providing superhuman levels of thought, and makes foldspace travel possible.
Watch the first trailer below. The sci-fi epic releases December 18.
