Look at that cast! 

Warner Bros. Pictures has finally released the first trailer for Dune, a movie adaptation of the acclaimed 1965 novel of the same name. Acting as the first part of a planned duology, it looks just as spectacular as one would expect, boasting a massive cast and sandworms abound. 

Watch the trailer below:

Dune is set in the far-flung future, where Duke Leto Atreides becomes the steward of a dangerous desert planet known as Arrakis. The planet is the only source of a highly valuable drug called ‘the spice’, which extends human life and grants people superhuman abilities. He takes his family to the planet and seizes control of its spice mining operation, a matter made complicated by the presence of gigantic sandworms. 

Dune’s cast includes the likes of Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem and more. The movie is directed by Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049), with music composed by Hans Zimmer. 

Dune is set to premiere in theatres on December 18, 2020.
