The House of Atreides and the future of the Empire, mysterious prophecies, a rare spice and devious conspiracies, Chani and the Messiah. Frank Herbert’s legendary literary epic is transferred to the big screen by Denis Villeneuve who’s ready for the greatest bet of his career. He is supported by a stellar cast of new talents and acknowledged actors: Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Stellan Skarsagard and Charlotte Rampling. Through Patrice Vermette’s holistic scenography, ‘Dune’ captures Herbert’s complicated ecosystem and through Eric Roth’s screenplay it explores the philosophical, ecological aspects of the novel. It also allows Hans Zimmer to compose an otherworldly musical symphony and – above all – it promises a spectacular journey to the most expected cinematic ‘spice’ of the year. P.G.
