Dune fans have been longing for some information regarding the upcoming science fiction epic, which was originally penned by Frank Herbert. The 1965 novel has gone down in history as one of the greatest sci-fi stories of all time – however it has struggled to receive a worthy cinematic adaptation.

Enter Denis Villeneuve, the iconic and prolific director of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049.

The incredible visionary set out to do right by Dune, and since then, fans have been anxiously awaiting their first glimpse of the film.

Now, with rumours swirling about the trailer’s release date, fans have had their eyes on the Dune official Twitter account.

Today, it was announced by the Twitter account that the first trailer for Dune will be released sooner than fans may think.

The account posted a short clip, showing off the faces of the cast in character.

Included in this line-up was none other than Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolan, Zendaya, and Jason Momoa, as well as Javier Bardem.

The tweet read: “Trailer tomorrow. #DuneMovie.”

Fans were also treated to a first glimpse of Chalamet as Paul Atreides – otherwise known as Muad’Dib.

As fans of the franchise will recall, Paul becomes known as Paul-Maud’Dib after a pivotal change in his life within Herbert’s novel. 

Considering the original prose of Dune is being split into two films by Villeneuve, fans are expecting to see Chalamet take on the role of Maud’Dib very briefly in this first film. 

Over the new clip, fans can hear Chalamet reciting the famous “fear” speech from the original story. 

He said: “Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.

“I will permit it to pass over me. When the fear has gone past. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

Earlier this week Stellan Skarsgard spoke to Express.co.uk about his part in the upcoming adaptation of the story.

In the film Skarsgard plays the villainous Baron Vladimir Harkonnen.

On Villeneuve’s new epic, he said: “It’s artistic mainstream, you could say.

“Of course, it is Denis Villeneuve. And, again, you will see a director that works with a cinematic language.

“When you see a Denis Villeneuve film you know it is not just any director – it is him.”

He went on to say: “In that sense he is a true artist. And I think, as with all his films, the atmosphere [in Dune] will be fantastic in it.”

Dune is due to be released December 18, 2020.
