Watch the First Trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’

Warner Bros. has unveiled the first trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated Dune. Based on the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert, which was adapted in 1984 by David Lynch, the film is set to hit theaters on December 18. It features a star-studded cast led by Timothée Chalamet as hero Paul Atreides and also starring Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem, Charlotte Rampling, Stellan Skarsgard, and more.

The official synopsis for Dune reads: “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.”

Villeneuve is no stranger to the stranger to the sci-fi genre, having previously directed Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 the latter of which was scored by Hanz Zimmer, who also composed the soundtrack for Dune. The three-minute trailer is soundtracked by Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon track ‘Eclipse’.
