This past fall, director Denis Villeneuve captivated us all with the futuristic, sand-ridden sci-fi film Dune, starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, and many more. Set 20,000 years in the future, the movie introduces us to a brand new-world of technology, power, and warfare.
Based on the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert, the story follows Paul (Chalamet), the royal heir to the house of Atreides, a wealthy colony on the planet Caladan in the year 10,191. He and his family, including his mother Lady Jessica (Ferguson) and father Duke Leto (Oscar Isaac), are sent to colonize the planet of Arrakis and harvest an invaluable resource. With unknown powers at bay, continued visions of a mysterious girl (Zendaya), and an odd intuition, Paul and his family must adjust to a new world with new rules and hidden enemies. With the rival House Harkonnen lurking, House Atreides may not stay in power for long.
Villeneuve’s take on the sci-fi epic was met with critical acclaim and even earned 10 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Costume Design, and Best Adapted screenplay. After premiering in theaters and online in October 2021, Dune has now returned to HBOMax as of March 10. So if you’re looking for a good way to start the weekend early, find a cozy seat and prepare to enter into a universe like no other.
