The epic trailer for Oscar nominee, Denis Villeneuve's (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) new film, Dune is here.

The film, based on Frank Herbert's seminal bestseller of the same name, follows Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) 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.

"A great man doesn't seek to lead, he's called to it," his father, Leto Atreides I (Oscar Isaac), tells him. "But if your answer is no, you'll still be the only thing I ever needed you to be – my son."

The film also stars Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Chang Chen, David Dastmalchian, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, with Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem.
