Geekery: First Trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ – This is Going to Be Incredible

The first look at this year’s most anticipated film has arrived.

Yesterday we were reminded that fear is the mind killer.

Today started with a live stream that included interviews with the cast that ended in the trailer.



Just the trailer for the TL;DR folks…


Most of us know the story, so there aren’t going to be too many surprises there. It’s the visual creation of that story that’s new and different. Jacqueline West’s costumes in action look exactly as I’d hoped and I’m glad we’re getting more actual combat (Lynch’s version, though I like it, was fairly devoid of it). I was excited for it before this, I am more so after seeing this. That looks amazing. The use of Pink Floyd is unexpected but welcome. I’m not happy about Zimmer (that’s a constant), but there was only one honk in this. Maybe they’ll be at a minimum in the full cut [crossing fingers].

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.

The film stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Oscar nominee Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Chang Chen, David Dastmalchian, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Oscar winner Javier Bardem.

Dune is slated to premiere in theaters on December 18th.
