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.

Dune is the first of a planned two-part adaptation of the 1965 book by Frank Herbert. It will cover roughly the first half of the book.

Dune stars Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya, as well as Rebecca Ferguson who has starred in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015) and its sequel Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018). She also played Jenny Lind in the musical film The Greatest Showman. Stellan Skarsgård also stars in Dune, who has starred in two of the Pirates of the Caribbean, and plays Dr. Erik Selvig in multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

Dune is currently set to be released on Friday, October 1, 2021. It will be released in theaters, as well as a month-long simultaneous release on the HBO Max streaming service.
