Denis Villeneuve's 2021 adaptation of Frank Herbert's sci-fi novel has released it's latest trailer. Find out more about the upcoming sci-fir release here.

The remake of Dune is almost on its way, with a brand new trailer being released this week.

Denis Villeneuve's take on the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert will see an all-star cast dazzle in a dust-filled spectacle this year.

The book was originally adapted for the cinema by David Lynch in 1984, but he considers it one of the only real failures of his career.

With its epic landscapes, incredible battle scenes and a Hans Zimmer score, this highly anticipated adaptation is one to watch as sci-fi fans across the globe wait to see if Villeneuve can do the novel justice.

But just what can we expect from the new Dune? Watch the latest official trailer above and find out everything we know about the film so far.
