The final trailer for Dune is now available. With less than two weeks until its release, Warner Bros. has released the third and final trailer for Dune, the epic sci-fi film starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgrd, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.
The final Dune trailer does an excellent job of setting up what Denis Villeneuve’s film will be like — both plot-wise and visually — with House Atreides’ ducal heir Paul (Timothée Chalamet) finding himself in a quagmire after his family is given stewardship of the dangerous desert planet Arrakis, which is the source of the universe’s most valuable substance: “spice.”
“Outsiders wreak havoc on our homelands. At the opening of the last Dune trailer, Chani (Zendaya), an Arrakis native and Paul’s love interest, states, “Their brutality to my people is all I’ve known.” We see a lot of fire and the visage of the sadistic Glossu Rabban (Dave Bautista), who does as he pleases.
Paul (Chalamet) tries to persuade House Atreides swordmaster Duncan Idaho (Jason Momoa) to accompany the advance squad to Arrakis. Idaho says he’ll be court-martialed, but Paul claims he’s been experiencing nightmares — or visions — about a girl who’s been killed in combat. It’s Chani on the other end of the line.
Idaho informs Paul bluntly, “Everything significant happens when we’re awake.” In the last Dune trailer, Paul is given counsel left, right, and center. His father, Duke Leto (Oscar Isaac), reminds Paul that he is the future of House Atreides, and his weapons teacher, Gurney Halleck (Josh Brolin), warns him to be prepared. “They’re not human,” says the narrator. Rabban and his master, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgrd), are “cruel,” Halleck snarls. Paul is concerned about what would happen if he isn’t all of these things, but Leto assures him that he will still be his kid, which is great.
In the meanwhile, Harkonnen is plotting the demise of House Atreides, telling Rabban to “murder them all.” “It’s an extermination,” Paul says. My family is being slaughtered one by one.” The last Dune video shifts into action mode when Idaho declares, “Let’s battle like devils.” We see massive explosions, massive ships, and massive sandworms. The sweeping soundtrack by Hans Zimmer builds to a crescendo, broken only by groans and Paul’s famous lines from Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel Dune: “I must not fear.” The murderer of the mind is fear. Only I shall remain where the terror has vanished.”
Dune will be released in theaters globally on October 22nd, as well as on HBO Max in the United States. Dune will be released in both English and Hindi in India. Dune is officially Dune: Part One, but Villeneuve is already working on a sequel. That’s also hinted to in the final Dune teaser. “This is merely the beginning,” Zendaya says at the conclusion. Dune: The Sisterhood, a prequel spin-off series for HBO Max, is also in the works.
