This star-studded film is based on the 1965 science fiction novel by Frank Herbert. It’s directed by sci-fi genius Denis Villeneuve and is said to follow the 1984 original film and the 2000 tv series.
The story is set on a dry planet called Arrakis or “Dune”. It is the only source of the spice melange, which is necessary for space travel and immortality, making the planet the key location of an ineluctable galactic power struggle.
The lead role, Paul Atreides, is played by Timothée Chalamet. Other big names in the cast include Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Rebecca Ferguson, and Dave Bautista.
“Dune” is scheduled for release on December 18.
