The planet Arrakis is in for quite a shake-up.
The first trailer for the upcoming sci-fi movie Dune, adapted from the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert, is an impressive and immense-feeling look at the first of two parts of the space epic. We get glimpses at the cast in action, including Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, the heir to House Atreides; the harsh deserts of Arrakis, where the invaluable spice Melange (a sci-fi super-drug) is found; some spaceships; and that most iconic of Dune imagery: a massive sandworm.
Dune is directed by Denis Villeneuve, and you can feel his touch in this trailer with its similar feel to previous movies Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival.
Dune is scheduled to release on Dec. 18, but who knows if it will actually come out then.
