Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) directs the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name.
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 (Call Me by Your Name, Little Women), Rebecca Ferguson (Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Oscar Isaac (the Star Wars franchise), Oscar nominee Josh Brolin (Milk, Avengers: Infinity War), and Stellan Skarsgård (Chernobyl, Avengers: Age of Ultron).
Also starring are Dave Bautista (the Guardians of the Galaxy films, Avengers: Endgame), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Fences, Lady Bird), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Euphoria), Chang Chen (Mr. Long, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), and David Dastmalchian (Blade Runner 2049, The Dark Knight).
The cast is rounded out by Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Sex Education), Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling (45 Years, Assassin’s Creed), Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Game of Thrones), and Oscar winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Skyfall).
Villeneuve directed Dune from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts and Villeneuve and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert. Villeneuve also produced the film with Mary Parent, Cale Boyter and Joe Caracciolo, Jr.
The executive producers are Tanya Lapointe, Joshua Grode, Herbert W. Gains, Jon Spaihts, Thomas Tull, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert.
Dune was filmed on location in Budapest, Hungary, and in Jordan. The movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
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 costume designer Robert 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 is slated to be released in select theaters in 2D and 3D and IMAX and on HBO Max on October 22, 2021 and will be available on HBO Max’s Ad-Free plan in 4K UHD, HDR10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos (English Only) on supported devices for 31 days from theatrical release.
