Dune, which is the film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s phenomenal 1968 saga, is all set for an out-of-competition release on September 3 at the 78th Venice Film Festival.
Director Denis Villeneuve, who is renowned for his beautifully shot and critically acclaimed science fiction movies like Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival, helmed the movie and co-wrote its script with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts.
Warner Bros Pictures had released the trailer of the film in September last year. Dune was one of the many films that postponed its release date due to the pandemic.
Dune features a star-studded ensemble cast of Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, Stellan SkarsgArd, Sharon Duncan Brewster, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Dave Bautista, Chang Chen, David Dastmalchian, Charlotte Rampling and Javier Bardem. The film is also set to hit the OTT platform, HBO Max, on October 1.
Dune follows an exceptionally young gifted man, Paul Atreides, who is seeking a precious resource, the spice, to ensure the survival of his family and his people. He has to make the journey to a treacherous planet where traps await him along with betrayals.
With Hans Zimmer helming the score of the movie, complementing the visuals, the film promises to be a treat not only for the eyes but also for the ears.
