Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released the first trailer for Denis Villeneuve‘s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s iconic novel, Dune.
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the tale of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), 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.
Check out the first trailer for Dune below, which is set to a rendition of “Eclipse” by Pink Floyd and dammit does it work!:
