Denis Villeneuve’s famous adaptation of Frank Herbert’s “Dune” was always envisioned as two films. However, even if the sequel of the movie is anything but a certainty that it’s already been a dream for the Canadian director and his star Timothee Chalamet.
Chalamet said in his statement on Friday: “Simply put, this was the honour of a lifetime for me,”. He added: “I hope we get to do a second one. It would be a dream…[but] it’s already been a dream come true.”
Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Villeneuve, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin all gathered together to discuss the film at a news conference before its world premiere Friday night on Lido. It is not such as a debuting part of the competition slate but it is one of the most anticipated and awaited films of the year after a lengthy delay in the release due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The story of Dune is basically based on Herbert’s 1965 science fiction classic. it is a heroic tale of a rising duke, power struggles, and lethal space worms. the movie has both inspired teams of filmmakers which have even increased the value of the movie. Chalamet plays the young hero, Paul Atreides, who is being groomed to lead when his family learns that they are to rule and protect the hostile desert planet Arrakis, home to the universe’s most valuable resource.
Although its a tale that has inspired many creative minds, it is also one of the bested them as well. Villeneuve had his own vision for Dune and he had been dreaming up for it since the time he first discovered the book as a teenager. Along with the support of legendary and Warner Bros, the promise of a sequel adds up an extra layer to the perfectness of the movie.
“Dune” is set to release on October 22 simultaneously in theatres as well as on HBO max like all the Warner Bros films in 2021. Although Villeneuve hopes that audience will much more seek out a theatrical experience if it is safe to do so as the pandemic has not gone away.
