Feature adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction novel, about the son of a noble family entrusted with the protection of the most valuable asset and most vital element in the galaxy.
Hyped. Enthralled. Juiced. Stimulated. Ecstatic. Arroused.
That is how I feel about Dune (2021). I can not wait until October 22, 2021.
The latest, official trailer for Dune was released Thursday morning and with it comes an immense amount of hype and attention. Denis Villeneuve, the director of Blade Runner 2049 (2017), Sicario (2015) and Arrival (2016), is known for putting an artistic stamp on all of his projects, and this science fiction effort looks no different.
Dune looks amazing. The visuals and fluid slow motion dazzling through the trailer are enough to give you goosebumps. Once you look past the style (which is admittedly really hard to do), there is the beyond star-studded cast.
Paul Atreides, the reluctant hero of the story, is played by Timothée Chalamet. He is joined by fellow young star Zendaya as Chani, the young woman of his dreams and premonitions. Through in the Rebecca Ferguson, Jason Mamoa, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem, David Dastmalchianm, Stellan Skarsgård and Charlotte Rampling.
If you don’t know the names of some of those actors, I can guarantee you that you know their faces.
Just need to nit-pick some of the best visual shots from this trailer.
Villeneuve has to grasp the scope of Frank Herbert’s novel, but if the scaling shots from this trailer are any hint…the idea of “how big can this be?” does not seem to be an issue.
Did I mention I am excited for Dune? And you want to know the best part? There are two parts of Dune. There will be a Dune part two in the future.
