First ‘Dune’ Teaser Arrives Ahead Of Tomorrow’s Trailer

” Fear is the Mind-Killer.”

Dune fans, tomorrow is your day. The first trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic is coming, but today a teaser offers a glimpse at the star-studded cast. Well, at their heads floating in the darkness, anyway.

Timothee Chalamet leads the way as prince Paul Atreides, a young noble who must ensure his family’s future by controlling the galaxy’s most valuable resource. He’s joined in the cast by Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica Atreides, Oscar Issac as Duke Leto Atreides, Stephen Mckinley Henderson as Thufir Hawat, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Zendaya as Chani, Stellan Skarsgard as Baron Vladimir, Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Dr. Liet Kynes, Dave Bautista as Glossu Rabban, Charlotte Rampling as Bene Gesserit, and Javier Bardem as Stilgar.

Dune arrives on December 18th, and at this time it seems that Warner Bros. has no desire to move it. But with Tenet only earning $20M over the weekend, they might be inclined to rethink the release strategy of their upcoming blockbusters.
