Dune Movie 2021
Dune is a 1965 science-fiction novel by Frank Herbert, a massively influential work whose space operatics and deep mythology can be found in everything from Star Wars to Game Of Thrones. Dune, on the other hand, is a sprawling franchise. Between 1969 and 1985, Herbert created five sequels, and since 1999, his son Brian Herbert has collaborated with Kevin J. Anderson on 14 more prequels and sequels. There was also a 1984 film and a 2000 TV mini-series, as well as various video and board games. That’s quite a bit of Dune.
What you really need to know is that director Denis Villeneuve has just released a big new film. And it might be the start of a multi-platform franchise that includes TV shows and film sequels. At least, assuming all goes according to plan.
Dune 2021 : Release Date
Dune will be released on October 22nd this year, following a protracted delay, and will be preceded by a Venice Film Festival debut on September 3rd. In the United States, it will be released simultaneously in theatres and on HBO Max – a subject of concern for Villeneuve, who has stated that he believes this will harm the film’s box office prospects and jeopardize the production of the planned sequel. Let’s hope he gets to complete his vision, and we’ll see you in Arrakis. Keep an eye out for sandworms.
It’s directed by Denis Villeneuve, an Oscar winner whose earlier sci-fi work includes Arrival and Blade Runner 2049. He was dissatisfied with Warner Bros.’ choice to release the film on HBO Max, commenting in Variety that the firm “could simply have ended the Dune series” because it won’t have a chance to make enough money. The tale of Herbert’s novel will be completed in a sequel, as well as the TV series spinoff Dune: The Sisterhood.
Dune 2021 : Cast
Everyone, more or less. Denis Villeneuve has assembled an extraordinary cast of impeccable actors for this one. Here’s who’s involved.
Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Rampling, Dave Bautista, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Stellan Skarsgrd join Timothée Chalamet as hero Paul Atreides in the star-studded cast.
Dune 2021 : Plot
The Dune saga as a whole span millennia, but for our purposes, the new Dune film’s story is limited to Frank Herbert’s original novel. It takes place in the far future, in an interplanetary feudal society ruled by a single all-powerful monarch and several aristocratic families. Duke Leto Atreides, ruler of the ocean world Caladan, accepts a transfer to the hard desert planet Arrakis – often known as Dune – to oversee the mining of the vital spice Melange, which is only found on Arrakis. Melange is the most powerful material in the cosmos, yet it is also the only way to travel through space. The spice must flow, but because of Arr, mining it is a risky business thanks to Arrakis’ massive indigenous sandworms.
Paul is Leto’s son. Leto’s concubine, Lady Jessica, a member of the enigmatic and sorcerous Bene Gesserit sisterhood, is Paul’s mother. But the Arrakis agreement isn’t what it seems; the Empire’s paranoid Emperor Shaddam IV is dealing with the corrupt House Harkonnen, and Arrakis’ indigenous Fremen people are fed up with the Empire’s meddling. Any additional information would result in the release of huge spoiler-worms, which are even worse than sandworms.
Dune 2021 : Trailer
On Thursday, a new trailer for Dune was unveiled, providing further details about the impending adaptation of Frank Herbert’s epic 1965 sci-fi novel. The film will be released in theatres and on HBO Max on October 22, and fans in the United States were able to experience the first 10 minutes during IMAX preview events.
The film depicts the war for sovereignty of Arrakis, a dusty desert planet that is the only source of the very precious spice (also known as melange). This medicine has the potential to extend human life, provide superhuman levels of cognition, and allow for faster-than-light travel.
The first Dune trailer is on the way, providing a first look at Denis Villenueve’s attempt to shoot one of science fiction’s most unfilmable storylines. Dune has a long history of fans, but depending on how much the trailer reveals, some may be confused by Timothée Chalamet and a basketball team’s worth of strong-jawed actors whipping through the desert with armor and swords. We can’t blame anyone: Dune is a dense place.
