Check out the Dune full trailer below for the first part of the Dune adaptation from Denis Villeneuve. Frankly, I think this looks great. So check it out for yourself.
Villeneuve directed Dune from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts and Villeneuve and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert. Villeneuve also produced the film with Mary Parent, Cale Boyter and Joe Caracciolo, Jr. The executive producers are Tanya Lapointe, Joshua Grode, Herbert W. Gains, Jon Spaihts, Thomas Tull, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert.
Here is the official synopsis below.
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.
I have read the book, though only the first one, and I enjoyed it. However, I think I was a little too young at the time to truly appreciate it, reading it as a teenager. I haven’t ever gone back and re-read it as an adult, I may do so after I see the movie. Until I see it, I don’t want my own imagination to take over and lessen the impact the movie itself may elicit. I absolutely loved Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049, so I am excited for this and the trailer looks great.
