0520 Dune Timothee Solo Lede 1024x432 - First Look at Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides in DUNE

Dune takes place in the year 10191, and centers on a spice called melange, the most valuable substance known in the universe, and its only source, the desert planet Arrakis. Arrakis is awarded to Duke Leto Atreides over his enemies, the Harkonnens. The Harkonnens then violently seize back Arrakis and it is up to Paul, Leto’s son, to lead the natives of Arrakis in a battle for control of the planet and its spice.
