Featuring an all-star cast led by Timothée Chalamet, Villeneuve gives Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel a jaw-dropping new look that will have viewers in awe.

Quebecois director Villeneuve has amassed an incredible ensemble cast for his sci-fi epic. Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin and Dave Bautista, among others, all feature in the updated Dune movie.
With a layered and complex plot, the film already stands in stark contrast to David Lynch’s critically maligned 1984 version of the story.
