What’s the release date for Dune?

Dune is set to be released in IMAX cinemas on 22 October 2021.

Its release was delayed for obvious reasons.

Is there an official Dune trailer yet?

There is an official trailer, which you can watch above!

And it’s as mysterious and action-packed as we’d hoped, featuring Timothée and Zendaya’s excellent on-screen chemistry as well as some serious fighting skills.

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.
