With strong reviews and over $100 million at the international box office, all things seemed to be aligned for the big budget adaptation of the first part of Frank Herbert's 1965 classic sci-fi novel, Dune. And, of course, it feels comforting to know that the final trailer released today seems to actually be final with the movie finally coming out after initially being set to be released last December. Now, with a simultaneous release on HBO Max and in theaters on October 22nd, it's going to take an equal haul in the US to justify making the other half of the novel. For now, check out the trailer below and see if you want to contribute to that cause (and that of Paul's journey):
Dune stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem. It is directed by Denis Villeneuve (who co-wrote the script with Jon Spaihts, Villeneuve, and Eric Roth).
