We’re in the final weeks until Dune finally gets its domestic release, and Legendary and Warner Bros. continue to turn up the hype. Fans are still wondering if this will make enough money to justify a sequel with the hybrid release on HBO Max, but the reviews have been pretty good so far. However, reviews coming out of film festivals are usually very polarizing. A movie is either the best or worst thing ever, so the more nuanced takes should be hitting soon as more and more members of the press get to see the movie. For now, we have a final trailer with some new footage, a new poster courtesy of Real 3D, and three new behind-the-scenes images from the Warner Bros. media site.
Dune Summary: A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
