First published in serial form from 1963-1964, Frank Herbert’s science fiction masterpiece, Dune, is one of the cornerstones upon which the entire genre rests. From the novel’s ambitious world-building scale to its complex politics-laden plot, there are few things about Dune that haven’t been imitated. And though it’s had an on-screen debut once before, Denis Villeneuve’s 2020 reboot promises to be a stunning adaptation.

The star-studded cast is headlined by Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name, Little Women) playing the heir apparent Paul Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson (Doctor Sleep, Mission: Impossible – Fallout) as his mother Lady Jessica, and Oscar Isaac (Star Wars) as his father Duke Leto. Set in a distant future, Dune follows the Atreides royal family’s political struggles as they attempt to navigate their new homeworld, the barren desert planet Arrakis. Though Arrakis is nearly inhospitable to all forms of life, it hides the universe’s only source of melange — a mind-altering spice known to offer enhanced navigation and multidimensional foresight. As such, control of the planet is a dangerous necessity that young Paul must learn to wield, no matter its immense cost. Slated for a December 18, 2020 release, Dune is sure to wow with its stunning otherworldly landscapes.
