Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Our excitement for next week’s official “Dune” trailer drop grows every single day. This is an excitement fed in part this week by Empire Magazine dropping exclusive images of the upcoming Denis Villeneuve film, a reimagining of Frank Herbert‘s seminal work of science fiction majesty- “Dune.”

This morning’s pair of photos covers some pretty important moments and people in the story- namely Paul Atreides’ (Timothée Chalamet) parents, Bene Gesserit Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) and Duke Leto Atredies (Oscar Isaac).

While the costumes aren’t as spectacular as we were hoping for (so far), this is one of those moments that speaks volumes. It’s a knowing look for Jessica, possibly when Leto is pretending to suspect her treachery?

In Empire’s tease of their next issue, Villeneuve spoke a bit about his version of the Lady Jessica, saying: “I didn’t want Lady Jessica to be an expensive extra. Something I deeply love in the book is that there was a strong balance between the masculine power and feminine power.”

Isaac told the publication:

“It’s about the destiny of a people, and the different way that cultures have dominated other ones. How do a people respond when it’s at the tipping point, when enough is enough, when they’re exploited? All those things are things we’re seeing around the world right now.”

The other image released this morning features Javier Bardem as Fremen leader Stilgar, with a group of what we’re hoping are the Fedaykin!

We seriously can’t wait to see “Dune,” which reportedly still has a release date of December 18th 2020.

We’ll let you know as soon as the trailer hits next week.
