Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune just dropped a teaser trailer ahead of tomorrow’s official trailer release. In the new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel, Timothée Chalamet stars as Paul Atreides along with a ridiculously star-studded ensemble cast. The film is currently slated for a December 2020 release, but we would not be surprised if the studio decides to shift it to next summer after the $20 million opening for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet.
Joining Chalamet in the film are Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica Atreides, Oscar Issac as Duke Leto Atreides, Stephen Mckinley Henderson as Thufir Hawat, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Zendaya as Chani, Stellan Skarsgard as Baron Vladimir, Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Dr. Liet Kynes, Dave Bautista as Glossu Rabban, Charlotte Rampling as Bene Gesserit, and Javier Bardem as Stilgar.
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.
