Coming ten months after the first trailer for Dennis Villeneuve’s sci-fi adaptation, the newest trailer for Dune is a visual treat promising a sci-fi adventure of epic proportions. Delayed due to Covid-19, the film is finally set to release theatrically and on HBO Max on October 22.
The trailer opens with Zendaya’s character Chani narrating how the Empire has exploited the people and resources of her planet Arrakis. Her planet is home to a natural resource known as Spice, which is necessary to conduct interstellar travel, making it the most valuable resource in the universe.
The film, which is based on Frank Herbert’s classic novel of the same name which is said to have inspired the likes of Star Wars, will star Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista.
Dune is one of a two-part adaptation of the novel, which will also be spun off as a TV show. The first part of the adaptation will cover roughly half of the book.
