UPDATE: Warner Bros. is officially pushing back the release date of Dune from December 18, 2020 to October 1, 2021.
UPDATE: The first Trailer is here!
The first official images from the upcoming sci-fi epic Dune has emerged. Helmed by visionary director Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049, Sicario), this latest adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fantasy novel features an all-star ensemble cast that includes Timothée Chalamet (The King), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: Rise Of The Skywalker), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Chang Chen (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
The two-part epic follows Chalamet as Paul Atreides, whose noble family takes ownership of the planet Arakkis. The desert planet is home to the world’s most valuable resource, a drug referred to as “the spice” that grants superhuman abilities, which makes the Atreides family an instant enemy of rival noble families and the indigenous people of Arakkis.
Rounding out the rest of the cast that is not yet featured in the photos above are Stellan Skarsgård (Thor), Dave Bautista (Master Z: The Ip Man Legacy) and Javier Bardem (Skyfall).
Dune is set to hit theaters on December 18, 2020.
