Dune returns to show itself with a official trailer in Italian which also announces the exit date for the long-awaited film by Denis Villeneuve, which proposes an adaptation on the big screen of the famous novel by Frank Herbert.
The film, which will be present as out of competition at the Venice Biennale on September 3, has the release date set for Italian cinemas at September 16, 2021 and is therefore shown in this spectacular trailer in Italian, which shows something of the setting, the characters and the story in a long montage of about 3 and a half minutes.
The history it takes up the original one from the book, already adapted in the past from David Lynch’s 1984 film of the same name, a comparison that is rather difficult for Villeneuve to sustain but which seems to be able to face the challenge, as far as we can see.
In the film, therefore, we follow the adventures of Paul Atreides, son of Duke Leto Atreides, who finds himself having to manage the threats of the dangerous planet Arrakis, very precious as the only source of “Spice”, a drug capable of extending life and providing superhuman mental abilities, as well as making space travel possible.
After being postponed, Dune will therefore arrive at the cinema in September. Villeneuve is therefore the director of the new Dune, as well as co-writer with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth. In cast troviamo Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”, “Piccole Donne”), Rebecca Ferguson (“Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep”, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”), Oscar Isaac (“Star Wars”), Josh Brolin (“Avengers: Infinity War”), Stellan Skarsgård (“Chernobyl”, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”), Dave Bautista (“Guardiani della Galassia”, “Avengers: Endgame”), Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”, “Euphoria” di HBO), Chen Chang (“Mr. Long”, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”), David Dastmalchian (“Blade Runner 2049”, “The Dark Knight”), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, “Sex Education”), Charlotte Rampling (“45 Years”, “Assassin’s Creed”), Jason Momoa (“Aquaman”, “Il Trono di Spade” di HBO) e il premio Oscar Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men”, “Skyfall”).
Recall that, on the front of video games, the Dune license is currently in the hands of Funcom, who we know have plans to make three games based on the franchise.
