The first audience the world has seen Dune. The long-awaited film, adapted from Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel, premiered at the Venice International Film Festival ahead of its debut in theaters and for streaming later this fall.
The latest version of Dune (David Lynch had a notorious flop with the same material in the 1980s) is directed by Denis Villeneuve, and starred in a star-studded cast including Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Zendaya and Jason Momoa. The film was originally scheduled to be released in November 2020, but has been delayed for almost a year due to the pandemic. And even with high expectations, the early reactions to the film so far come from Venice extremely positive. At least one critic compared the film positively to the experience of watching 2001: A Space Odyssey for the first time. For sci-fi movies, it doesn’t get any better than that.

Here is the film’s official synopsis:
A mythical and emotional hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great fate beyond his comprehension, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to secure the future of his family and his people. While malicious forces explode in conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most valuable resource available – a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential – only those who can overcome their fears will survive.
Dune premieres in theaters and on HBO Max on October 22nd.
