The latest trailer for Dune, Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of the science fiction classic, is here. We got our first look at the film almost a year ago with the original trailer for the film, shown below. Legendary Pictures hasn’t announced exactly when the trailer will drop, so we’ll be waiting with our cursor hovering over the refresh button for it to arrive.
Villeneuve’s Dune is unique from previous adaptations in that instead of being a single piece of work, as with David Lynch’s Dune and the 2000 Syfy mini-series, this film only covers the first half of the first novel. Those who have seen the first 10 minutes of the film, which has been available in some IMAX theaters, have said that the footage is preceded by the text “Dune: Part One.” At the same time, neither Warner Bros. nor Villeneuve have said anything official about when a sequel is coming or if it’s even been greenlit.
Two batches of cast posters revealed by distributor Legendary Pictures give us an idea of what we can expect from the film. For example, Feyd Rautha, House Harkonnen’s answer to Paul Atreides, has not been cast and doesn’t appear in any of those images.
Director Denis Villeneuve, best known for Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, helmed Dune. The film sports a star-studded cast, including Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac, Dave Bautista, Josh Brolin, David Dastmalchian, and more.
After a handful of delays, Dune releases to theaters on October 22, 2021. In the meantime, check out all the details you may have missed in that first trailer and how the first Dune’s Paul, Kyle MacLachlan, feels about Dune hitting HBO Max.
