It turned out to be one of the biggest movie hits of 2021.
Dune saw Arrival director Denis Villeneuve adapt Frank Herbert’s seminal novel of the same name.
The film tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) as he travels with his aristocratic family to the planet Arrakis to fulfill his duties for the Galactic Empire.
The planet Arrakis is rich in the fuel known as melange (or spice), which is hotly contested and prized in the galaxy.
However, the Atreides family faces a trap set by their rivals, the Harkonnens.
Facing grave danger, Paul and his mother Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) find themselves in the desert and face to face with the planet’s mysterious native population, the Fremen.
