As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the foremost precious resource in existence-a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential-only those that can conquer their fear will survive.

Is Dune Trailer Out?

Not yet, but that would change very soon. Considering the movie remains scheduled for December, it’s likely a trailer will begin sometime shortly. In fact, consistent with Timothée Chalamet on Twitter, we will expect the Dune trailer “before sept.”


Right now, if you google “Dune 2020 trailer,” you will find a bizarre fan-made trailer created by a corporation called “Screen Culture.” This trailer pieces together footage from various Star Wars films, the 1984 Dune, and other movies starring Timothée Chalamet to make a very bizarre and slapdash experience. Needless to mentionit’s not a true trailer. That said, it’s real up until the second you press play.
