After the 1987 version directed by David Lynch, this new adaptation of Frank Herbert's novel moves us back to a futuristic dystopia controlled by a feudal system in which every noble family reigns a planet, and each of them owes loyalty to the Emperor Padishah. The family of Leto Atreides is transferred to the inhospitable planet of Arrakis (also known as Dune), which is the only place that contains the "spice" called melange, a drug that produces in those who take some levels of thinking about humans. In the same way this substance is the only one that allows interstellar travel, which is why it is so valuable. When the operation for the extraction of the spice seems controlled, the whole mission becomes complicated. It is then that the ancient rulers of the planet, the Harkonen, decide to attack the planet (with the approval of the emperor) and the young Paul Atreides is forced to flee to the desert, where he will investigate and find his opportunity to overthrow the Harkonen. The soundtrack will be provided by the famous Hans Zimmer and the film will be directed by Denis Villeneuve. In the cast we can find remarkable actors as Timothée Chalamet ('Call Me By Your Name'), Stellan Skarsgård ('Mamma Mia') and Oscar Isaac ('Ex-Machina'), among others.
