Coming to you this October is the new movie “Dune” starring Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides and Zendaya as Chani. The film is directed by Oscar nominee, Denis Villeneuve, and written by Jon Spaihts, Denis Villeneuve and Eric Roth.

This movie is a sequel to the novel “Dune” written by American author Frank Herbert in 1965. The novel tells the story of Paul Atreides, whose family accepted the stewardship of the planet Arrakis. 

“I am a massive fan of the Dune books. It’s a book that stayed with me over 35 years and it’s a book that I deeply know,” Villeneuve told io9 and a group of journalists last month. “So you go into the adaptation, you realize that the goal was to make a movie that will please the hardcore fans, the people that know Dune by heart, and also my mother that never read Dune … So to find that equilibrium was not easy.”

Villeneuve’s action-filled film is about a mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey. “Dune,” tells the story of Paul Atreides, who is a brilliant and gifted young man. Atreides was born into a great destiny beyond his understanding. 

He must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. Only those who can conquer their fear will survive the journey.

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear, and I will permit it to pass over me. When the fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain,” expressed Paul Atreides. 

This film is one you will want to see and is coming to you in theaters and on HBO Max Friday, October 22nd.
