Warner Bros. today released the second official trailer for the film Dune (Dina) directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049). We got the first trailer last fall and we were looking forward to the new one as well as the final arrival date of the film which is set for October 22 when the film hits theaters (in 2D, 3D and IMAX format) and on the HBO Max platform.
The trailer, which lasts over three minutes, begins with Paul Atreides, who dreams of a mysterious girl, but also of the destruction of Arrakis. In addition to teasing with a number of action shots, it also gives us a new perspective on each of the main characters, including Duke Leto and Gurney Halleck. Brutal antagonists Baron Harkonnen and his extremely cruel nephew Rabban, are also featured in a new trailer that reveals how dangerous they are.
The mythical and emotionally charged journey of Dina tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and talented young man born to achieve a great destiny beyond his comprehension, who must go to the most dangerous planet in the universe to secure the future of his family and people. As sinister forces enter into an explosive conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious available resource – a ‘commodity’ that can unlock humanity’s greatest potential – only those who can overcome their fear will survive.
Starring Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame), Stellan Skarsgård (Thor: The Dark World) ), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Fences), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Chang Chen (Love And Destiny), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Sex Education), Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men).
Whether the film (especially in these new conditions) will be able to make a profit given its large budget, Villeneuve’s Dina is likely to be a wicked film. WB hopes to make a franchise out of it, something that David Lynch’s previous adaptation failed to do.
