The film that has reached the cinema is only the first part, of two, of the adaptation of the bestseller by Frank Herbert
Denis Villeneuve brought to the cinema the first part of his adaptation of the first novel of “Dune” by Frank Herbert. A work that distances itself from David Lynch’s vision, brought to the big screen in 1984. The director strongly wanted a division into two parts, in order to be able to protect the integrity of the best seller, without having to cut much of the material.

His son, Paul Atreides, with his innate abilities and a legend that hovers around him, seems destined to transform this world and beyond.
Timothée Chalamet he is Paul Atreides, son and heir of Duke Leto Atreides and Lady Jessica. Victim of a political conspiracy, together with the rest of his family, he will find himself on a journey to Arrakis, to discover his own destiny and the secrets of the planet.
