Dune: Timothée Chalamet appears in released photo of the film

The long-awaited film by filmmaker Denis Villeneuve (Fires, The Arrival and Blade Runner 2046) had its first photo released this morning by Vanity Fair.

In it, Timothée Chalamet (of call me by your name) appears wearing the character Paul Atreides on his home planet of Caladan, when a pair of transport ships arrive to bring him to his new home.

Unlike Dune, which is essentially a giant desert with little water, Paul Atreides’ birthplace is cool, wet and comfortable. The image already shows a strong contrast between Paul’s old life and his new one, which will lead him to be the great savior of the people of Dune. But according to the actor, this is not his hero’s journey.

“The attractive point about Paul was the fact that, in a story with so many details and building a new world, the protagonist is on a kind of anti-hero journey,” Chalamet said in an interview with Vanity Fair.

The Villeneuve-directed feature also features Oscar Isaac and Rebecca Ferguson (as Paul’s parents), Duke Leto, Javier Bardem, Zendaya, Lady Jessica and Stellan Skarsgård in the lead roles.

This is not the first time that Frank Herbert’s book has tried to be adapted to film. In the 1980s, Jodorowsky tried to transport the novel to the screen with wild ideas, sketches, drawings and many things he had already built. Although the film did not materialize, fans of the universe created by Herbert were able to see all this through a documentary released in 2013 and directed by Frank Pavich, entitled Jodorowsky Dune.

It’s worth remembering that the new movie is still scheduled to come out on December 18th this year. And this is one of the only most anticipated movies of 2020 whose release date hasn’t been changed because of the coronavirus pandemic. We will be waiting to see if all this will be maintained.
