Fans of this beloved sci-fi adventure are in for a treat. Warner Bros Pictures and Legendary Pictures just dropped the 3-minute official trailer of “Dune” which stars Oscar nominee Timothee Chalamet as the lead.
Filmed on location in Hungary and Jordan, the movie promises to be a mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey. It tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born to a destiny beyond his understanding. He must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As evil forces battle over the planet’s most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049”) directs this big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller which counts previous Oscar nominees in its cast apart from Chalamet: Josh Brolin, and Charlotte Rampling. And then there’s Oscar winner Javier Bardem who plays the role of Stilgar, an admired leader of a community called Sietch Tabr.
The film is slated for a January 2021 release in the Philippines.
