What is Dune about?

The plot of Dune is based on Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel of the same name.

Filmmaker Denis Villeneuve has adapted the first part of the book into Dune and a second film is in talks to follow, as he believes the book is too detailed to be compressed into just one movie.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, he said: "I would not agree to make this adaptation of the book with one single movie.

“The world is too complex. It’s a world that takes its power in details.”

The plot takes place in the future on a planet called Arrakis, which is the only place in the universe that produces ’spice’ - a substance needed to extend human life into superhuman.

The film sees Timothée Chalamet’s character, Paul, fighting to protect the planet and the spice.
