Holy Sandworm! - Dune (2020) Debuts First Official Trailer

In our I.C.Y.M.I. space earlier this year, we put a focus on some of the first on-screen images from Dune (2020), a film from Denis Villeneuve based on the 1965 classic sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert, a member of MoPOP's Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame. This past week, Dune debuted its first official trailer, introducing many characters from the film's star-studded cast. The roughly 3-minute trailer, played over Pink Floyd's "Eclipse," highlights the story of teenager Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) as his journey unfolds on the desert-planet Arrakis. Make sure to watch the trailer 'til the end for the epic sandworm shot, then check out the sandworm head from the 1984 Dune film that's in our collectionDune is set to arrive in theaters on December 18, 2020.
