In this great interplanetary adventure, Timothée Chalamet plays Paul Atreides, a young man born in a feudal society of the future, where various noble houses fight over the precious spice melange. This spice, which only exists on the planet Arrakis - also known as Dune for its impressive desert landscape - is used to extend human life, make space travel and grant those who possess it superhuman powers. After David Lynch tried, in 1984, to tell the story of "Dune", the famous science fiction series written by Frank Herbert (1920-1986), the story is now reinvented by Denis Villeneuve in a film that had its world première at the 78th edition of the Venice Festival. The music is by Hans Zimmer, author of some of cinema's most iconic soundtracks.
