Dune's first trailer is finally here to give us our first proper look at the eagerly-awaited reboot.
The trailer was debuted during a Twitter live event as Stephen Colbert spoke to the incredible cast about how they got involved with the movie, shooting in a real environment and their memories of Dune.
The new adaptation of Frank Herbert's 1965 science fiction novel(s) will see Timothée Chalamet joined by an objectively mega cast, including Josh Brolin, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem, Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård and Charlotte Rampling.
Warner Bros had previously confirmed that the trailer for the Denis Villeneuve's reboot was coming on September 9 with a moody teaser.
Famously considered an unfilmable book, until David Lynch went ahead and filmed it in 1984, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides (Chalamet), a gifted young man who is destined to liberate a planet and seize control of its precious spice melange, the most valuable substance in the universe.
The movie underwent reshoots in Hungary last month, with the European country being one of the first to give the green light on production amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Oscar Isaac – who plays Duke Leto Atreides in the upcoming film – previously confirmed the reshoots to Deadline, while also sharing his clear astonishment at the proposed release date.
"I saw some things cut together and it just looks amazing," he said. "Denis [Villeneuve] is a real artist and it will be exciting to see it come together.
"It's kind of wild that we're doing some additional shooting a few months before it's supposed to come out, but that happened with Star Wars as well."
Dune is scheduled for release in cinemas on December 18, 2020.
