More details about Dune
Dune is based on Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel of the same name. Warner Bros. official synopsis of the movie reads:
“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.”
In the movie, malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence. This is a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential. Only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
As for the cast, the film features two massive talents, Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet. Starring alongside the two celebrities are Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson and Josh Brolin.

Is there a part 2
Filmmaker Denis Villeneuve has adapted the first part of the book into Dune and a second film is in talks to follow. He believes that the book is too detailed to be compressed into just one movie.
“I would not agree to make this adaptation of the book with one single movie. The world is too complex. It’s a world that takes its power in details.”
Dune is set to premiere on December 18, 2020.
