We are getting ever closer to the release of Denis Villuneve‘s “Dune.” This week, fans in select markets will be able to see a sneak peek of the film, as well as a new trailer, in IMAX theaters thanks to Warner Bros. Pictures.
This morning, the official Warner Bros. marketing machine finally allowed the sleeper to awaken, releasing a handful of character posters! These are the best look we’ve gotten at certain characters so far, like The Baron!
Yeah….we’re a little obsessed with Frank Herbert‘s seminal work of science fiction. We STILL love David Lynch‘s much-maligned 1984 version (pick up the new 4K here!) which started Kyle MacLachlan as Paul Atredies and Sting as Feyd Rautha, and sort of not-so-silently detest the mini series from the 2000s which starred Alec Newman and Matt Kesslar.
This new version has been in the works for some time, and has one of the most impressive casts assembled in recent years.
Starring Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as the Lady Jessica, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Zendaya as Chani, Javier Bardem as Stilgar, Stellan Sarsgård as Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, Dave Bautista as the Beast Raban, David Dastmalchian as Piter deVrys, Chen Chang as Doctor Wellington Yueh, Stephen McKinley Henderson as Thufir Hawat, Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Liet-Kynes, and Charlotte Rampling as Gaius Helen Mohiam.
Hans Zimmer is composing the score. Check out Zimmer’s cover of Pink Floyd’s “Eclipse” from the trailer here.
“Dune” is set to hit theaters and HBO Max on October 22nd, 2021.
