The First Trailer For “Dune” is Here!

This is our first good look at Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, and it’s a doozy. Your moderator for this virtual event is none other than Stephen Colbert, a fan of Frank Herbert’s original novel, who speaks with writer/director Dennis Villeneuve, star Timotheé Chalamet, who plays Paul Asteides, and many members of this incredible cast. Colbert chats with Josh Brolin (Gurney Halleck), Oscar Isaac and Rebecca Ferguson (Leto Atreides and Lady Jessica Atreides respectively), Jason Momoa (Duncan Idaho), Javier Bardem (Stilgar), Zendaya (Chani), and Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Liet-Kynes.) These folks seem as fired up about this movie as the rest of us do.

Come for the first look at Dune, and stay for Oscar Isaac’s epic burn on Josh Brolin’s head size:

If you want to zip right to the trailer, then here you go:

Villeneuve has assembled an incredible crew, including cinematographer Greig Fraser, composer Hans Zimmer, and production designer Patrice Vermette.

Dune was originally slated for a December 2020 release. 

Here’s the official synopsis for Dune:

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.
