Brand-New ‘Dune’ Trailer Unveils Initial Film Footage in a Year

Perhaps I might lose a bit of my geek credibility by admitting this, but I have never watched the entire original Dune. My knowledge about it is quite limited, revolving around sandworm rides and the mysterious “spice melange.” It’s a film that frequently pops up in conversations, yet finding the time to dive into it has always eluded me. If you find yourself in a similar situation, the upcoming retelling of the story might just be the perfect chance to hop on the bandwagon.

Warner Bros. has unveiled a fresh trailer today for their upcoming revival of Dune, scheduled for release on October 22 following multiple delays caused by the pandemic. The buzz around the movie had subsided in recent months, likely due to the cinema industry trying to regain its momentum after a prolonged halt prompted by the global situation. Only this week did we catch our first glimpse of the actors fully in character, not to mention an actual trailer, the absence of which has been noted since the previous autumn.

The latest Dune trailer depicts the enchanting deserts of the planet Arrakis, where the native Fremens endure continual oppression by the Harkonnens, who covet the planet’s abundant spice resources. Additionally, we are treated to our initial detailed view of Timothée Chalamet, a favorite lean actor in Hollywood, portraying the young prince Paul Atreides. Paul’s prophetic visions guide him toward forming a connection with the Fremen populace. The storyline remains elusive, and the trailer does little to unravel it, but for those seeking a brief overview, the dust jacket of the original book may provide some clues.

Warner Bros. has struck a deal with IMAX for an unparalleled presentation of Dune in the highest quality possible, which is why they are advocating strongly for an exclusive theatrical release instead of the simultaneously planned theater and HBO Max debut. Director Denis Villeneuve has made it clear that he disapproves of the dual release format, emphasizing that the ultimate way to experience this movie is on the grandest screen available.
