Our first glimpse of Denis Villeneuve's DUNE

Thanks to Vanity Fair, we have our first official look at the new film version of Dune, due for release in December this year (global emergency notwithstanding).

A First Look at Timothe Chalamet in Dune

The image shows Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides at the start of the film when he is still on the water world of Caladan. Various spacecraft can be see in the image, presumably preparing to help the Atreides family move to the desert planet of Arrakis, more popularly called Dune.

Vanity Fair will be releasing more information and possibly more photographs in the coming days.

Dune is currently scheduled for release on 18 December 2020. As well as Chalamet, it stars Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as the Lady Jessica, Javier Bardem as Stilgar, Zendaya as Chani, Stellan Skarsgård as Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, David Bautista as Glossu Rabban, Charlotte Rampling as Gaius Helen Mohiam, Chang Cheng as Dr. Wellington Yueh, David Dastmalchian as Piter De Vries and Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho. The film actually only adapts the first half of the novel, with the rest to be covered in a sequel.

I've been looking forward to this since they announced it. How can it miss with a director and cast like that, right?!? Except I am a bit worried that this is the first I've heard about it in a very long time, and so close to release. Maybe that's normal
