Today on Twitter, Warner Bros has released the first few character posters for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune film. After last year’s first trailer debut, this marks the beginning of Dune’s second rollout promotions ahead of this week’s IMAX-exclusive preview event. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the studio to push the film’s release to October 2021.
The new posters spotlight the key characters in the film, including Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides, son of Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac), and Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson). Zendaya as Chani, Javier Bardem as Stilgar, Dune’s native Freman, and more are featured. See all of the character posters below.
Warner Bros’ synopsis for the film reads: “A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.”
