A New Trailer for Villeneuve's DUNE!
Try as they might, previous film-makers have failed to fully translate Frank Herbert's 1965 novel to the big screen.
Alejandro Jodorowsky Prullansky famously failed to get his 14 hour film off the ground, despite having Salvador Dali and Orson Welles on-board.
David Lynch's 1984 version is, perhaps, a flawed masterpiece that did not reflect the director's own vision. Despite this it retains a well earned following.
So, it is a brave film-maker who takes on the story of the planet Arrakis and the House Atreides. Denis Villeneuve is such a director, having already proven his cult-favourite credentials with the superb Blade Runner 2049.

The production team is also extraordinary with Oscar nominations and winners amongst the Production Design, Editing, Visual Effects, Special Effects, Costume Design, Photography and Composing team.

So, three months before it hits the big screen, settle back and enjoy this brand new trailer for DUNE!
It looks epic. Everything that we hoped it would be. We can't wait to see it in three month's time.
We are already on the hunt for movie posters and will let you know as soon as they arrive!
