Set in the distant future on the perilous and unforgiving landscape of the desert planet Arrakis, the mining of ‘spice’ – a drug that can induce superhuman powers – is taken over by Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac) in a complex and dangerous operation.

But his son Paul (Timothée Chalamet) is plagued by apocalyptic visions and faces the almighty wrath of the warring house of Harkonnen (lead by a terrifying Stellan Skarsgård). Enduring betrayals, iconic giant sandworms and conflict with natives in the heart of Arrakis, Dune is cinema on an astronomical scale.

Having previously helmed the cerebral alien invasion and time travel puzzle Arrival, and brought an assured and innovative eye to Blade Runner 2049, Villeneuve masterfully translates Frank Herbert’s challenging source material with the cinematic power it so richly deserves.

The first of a behemoth two-part blockbuster adaptation, Dune boasts an incredible ensemble cast (from Charlotte Rampling and Josh Brolin, to Zendaya and Javier Bardem) with Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name) at its unwaveringly heroic centre.
