Final DUNE trailer – Denis Villeneuve’s vision of Frank Herbert’s story is here, and magnificent

David Lynch’s DUNE has been the definitive visual representation for many since its theatrical release in the mid 80s, but hardcore fans of the books argued with its interpretation and storytelling, much of which was edited for time. Since then we’ve seen televised attempts at the narrative, but many hoped for a big screen redo, and now we’re finally getting it. Thanks to director Denis Villeneuve (BLADE RUNNER 2049), Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ new DUNE promises to be more of what fans hoped for, even if said to only be the first part of the story… people are going to need to show up in droves if we want a sequel here, folks. The impressive cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Chang Chen, David Dastmalchian, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem. Villeneuve directed DUNE from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert. Oscar-winning and multiple Oscar-nominated composer Hans Zimmer provides the score, and that by itself is worth the price of admission. Check out the new FINAL trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, 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.

DUNE is now scheduled to open in theaters on October 22, 2021
