Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune will be unleashing a trailer soon. And today we have a trio of new images including a fresh kick-ass look at Jason Momoa’s Duncan Idaho in action.
Check out the new images via Empire below.
Villeneuve directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts, based on the novel by Frank Herbert. Chalamet, Ferguson, and Brolin’s co-stars include Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, Javier Bardem, Charlotte Rampling, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Jason Momoa, Stephen Henderson, and Zendaya.
In the far future of humanity, Duke Leto Atreides accepts stewardship of the dangerous desert planet Arrakis, also known as Dune, the only source of the most valuable substance in the universe, “the spice”, a drug which extends human life, provides superhuman levels of thought, and makes foldspace travel possible. Though Leto knows the opportunity is an intricate trap set by his enemies, he takes his Bene Gesserit concubine Lady Jessica, young son and heir Paul, and most trusted advisers to Arrakis. Leto takes control of the spice mining operation, which is made perilous by the presence of giant sandworms. A bitter betrayal leads Paul and Jessica to the Fremen, natives of Arrakis who live in the deep desert.
The film hits in theaters on December 18th. The trailer will hopefully arrive soon.
