The official new trailer for “Dune” was released on Thursday, and it shows Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet fighting for their lives on the hostile desert planet Arrakis.
“Dune” is based on the sci-fi novel of the same name by Frank Herbert. The film follows the Atreides family, led by patriarch Duke Leto (Oscar Isaac), as they arrive on Arrakis to oversee production of the mysterious substance known as “spice.”
But the Atreides’ rivals, the Harkonnens, are desperate to stop them from seizing power on the planet, and subsequently launch an attack that threatens to obliterate the entire family.
As shown in the new trailer, Paul Atreides (Chalamet), his father, and several Atreides soldiers (including Jason Momoa and Josh Brolin) fight desperately to save their house. They’re aided in their quest by Arrakis’ indigenous people, the Fremen, including Chani (Zendaya).
“Dune” premieres October 22. You can watch the new trailer below.
