Dune is the mysterious new thriller that will take you to a new galaxy.

The film follows the story of a young and gifted Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), who has spent his whole life preparing to lead as the heir to the great House Atreides. He has been trained to keep a level head, and yet for some inexplicable reason, he is plagued by visions of a girl who seems to be sending him signals about the future. Everything Paul has ever known is put to the test when the visions lead him to a new planet and through a dangerous war. Amid the fight for the planet’s irreplaceable resources, the heir will find the path to his destiny — if he can survive.

Dune is based on the bestselling novel by Frank Herbert of the same name, which was written in 1965. With an earlier film adaptation of the book having been released in 1984, this year’s version will feature a refreshing retake with more effects and excitement. In fact, this 2021 film will be the first installment of a two-part adaptation, brace yourself for a ton of action! True fans of Dune will appreciate the loyalty and mercy of the House of Atreides, the power and brutality of the House Harkonnen, and the survival and resistance of The Fremen.
