The first trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” has dropped, and much like the spice, the fanatical breakdowns must flow. For both “Dune” superfans and those about to meet their first sandworm, let’s dive into the world of Arrakis together with this breakdown of everything we spotted in the new “Dune” trailer.
“Dune,” starring Timothée Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson and more, is adapted from Frank Herbert’s 1965 science fiction novel. According to Villeneuve, his adaptation will cover roughly half of the epic space series.
To understand “Dune,” you need to first know two things: One, the universe of the distant future is run by a space Emperor and a collection of noble houses that each govern their patch of stars as they see fit; two, there’s a magic dust that runs everything called “the spice.” (Note: This breakdown contains some very mild spoilers.)
