Finally, the first trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated film Dune has arrived and, as well as giving us a glimpse of the infamous sandworms and Villeneuve’s incredible vision, it also comes with a taster of Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack with Pink Floyd song ‘Eclipse’.
Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel has been largely credited with being the influence for some of TV and film’s most notable stories, including series such as Game of Thrones and Star Trek but until now there has never been a film to truly match Herbert’s words. Until now.
The first trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s version of the film has landed with aplomb and already got fans of sci-fi extremely excited at what is to come.
The trailer offers up the first real glimpse of Villeneuve’s vision of the story and will show young Paul Atreides (played by Timothée Chalamet), the scion of the noble House of Atreides who has been tasked with ruling the desert planet Arrakis, also known as Dune. From this trailer the end goal is clear.
This film may well be steeped in sub-plot and clever writing but Villeneuve’s version of the film will be a blockbuster. Huge battle scenes coupled with giant monsters and stunning landscapes means this film will be a treat for all, sci-fi fan or not.
As well as being very clear on the destination of the film, we were also treated to a snippet of the soundtrack. With Hans Zimmer on board, there is no doubt that it will be impressive but his reimagining of Pink Floyd’s classic ‘Eclipse’ for this clip is sensational.
So, without further ado, jump into Frank Herbert’s world and immerse yourself in Dune.
