New Dune Images Debut Ahead of the Trailer

-

With the trailer coming on September 9, Empire has released new Dune images on the covers of the magazine’s October issue. You can view the Dune images below!

A “trailer date teaser” will debut in theaters with Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, which starts playing in select North American theaters on Monday, August 31. The official trailer will then come online on Wednesday, September 9 at 9 a.m. Pacific Time!

Directed by Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049), the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller is scheduled to open in theaters on December 18, 2020.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, the Dune movie tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), 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 also stars Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible films), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars films), Stellan Skarsgård (the Mamma Mia! films, Avengers: Age of Ultron), Dave Bautista (the Guardians of the Galaxy films, Avengers: Endgame), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Fences, Lady Bird), and Zendaya (Spider-Man films).

Also starring are David Dastmalchian (the Ant-Man movies), Chang Chen (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Grandmaster), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Sex Education), with Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling (45 Years, Assassin’s Creed), with Jason Momoa (Aquaman), and Oscar winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Skyfall).

Villeneuve directed Dune from a screenplay he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts based on Herbert’s novel. The film is produced by Mary Parent, Cale Boyter, Joe Caracciolo and Villeneuve.

The executive producers are Tanya Lapointe, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, Kim Herbert, Thomas Tull, Jon Spaihts, Richard P. Rubinstein, John Harrison and Herbert W. Gains, with Kevin J. Anderson serving as creative consultant.

Behind the scenes, Villeneuve reteamed with two-time Oscar-nominated production designer Patrice Vermette (Arrival, Sicario, The Young Victoria), two-time Oscar-nominated editor Joe Walker (Blade Runner 2049, Arrival, 12 Years a Slave), two-time Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Paul Lambert (First Man, Blade Runner 2049), and Oscar-winning special effects supervisor Gerd Nefzer (Blade Runner 2049).

He also collaborated for the first time with Oscar-nominated director of photography Greig Fraser (Lion, Zero Dark Thirty, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story); three-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Jacqueline West (The Revenant, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Quills) and co-costume designer Bob Morgan; and stunt coordinator Tom Struthers (The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception). 

Oscar-winning and multiple Oscar-nominated composer Hans Zimmer (Blade Runner 2049, Inception, Gladiator, The Lion King) is creating the score.

Dune was filmed on location in Budapest, Hungary, and in Jordan. You can view more photos in the gallery below.
