After many delays, the highly anticipated trailer for Dune finally dropped on Wednesday. Thankfully, we have a glimpse of the world Arrakis — and the giant sandworms that come with it.
A new trailer was released for the epic film from Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, based on the classic 1965 sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert. The trailer opens with visions of Chani, played by Zendaya, describing the beauty of her planet Arrakis, also known as Dune.
Featured in the trailer are also scenes of battle, the grandeur of the planet, and glimpses at the iconic sandworms of Dune.
In addition to Chalamet and Zendaya, the movie stars Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Rampling, Dave Bautista, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin and Stellan Skarsgård.
“Dune” will make its IMAX premiere at TIFF in September then hit theatres October 22nd 2021.
