The star-studded sci-fi adventure has been one of the most anticipated new films of the year. Postponed several times due to the ongoing pandemic, Dune comes by way of renowned director and Blade Runner 2049 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. The stunning visuals fans have come to expect from the French Canadian director feature prominently in the new Dune trailer, but it’s the character arc that is getting fans excited.

Villeneuve’s faithful recreation of Frank Herbert’s award-winning novel sees Chalamet take on the lead role of Paul Atreides, the only son of Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) and Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac). The young heir set to inherit his father’s empire, which presides over Arrakis, an unforgiving desert planet that houses the most important substance in the known world. Years of training have pushed Paul to the forefront, but his destiny unravels when the terrifying Baron Harkonnen and his nephew Glossu (Dave Bautista) start a war over control of Arrakis.

Throw in a deadly inter-planetary war, the ferocious Javier Bardem and awe-inspiring Zendaya for good measure, and Dune is looking like surefire Oscar bait. The film was originally scheduled to come out on November 20, 2020, then got pushed back a few weeks to December 18, 2020. Because of the novel coronavirus pandemic, Dune will now release on October 21.
