First Image of Timothée Chalamet in Dune!

I wrote an article about the connection between Dune and Star Wars some time ago. I initially wrote it for a website I no longer write for, but they never published it. So I polished it up significantly and published it for Medium. It was my first film-related article on Medium, and it was curated the next day. It might even get more traction now that the promotional run for Dune has finally begun.

Being the huge Star Wars fan that I am, Dune also has a special place in my reader’s heart. While the 1980s movie wasn’t really all that good, I am holding onto hope that Denis Villeneuve’s version will shatter the previous film’s records and maybe even push its cast and director into the Star Wars fandom’s hemisphere.

If you don’t know anything at all about it, feel free to read my article on Medium (and you’ll be supporting me as a writer at the same time).

Here’s the image scooped by Vanity Fair. It’s a very sombre image, the colour palette is giving off a melancholy feeling about it. And Paul Atreides looking downward reinforces the overall feeling of this photo. It’s beautiful.

EDITOR’S NOTE – I just realised why this image looks the way it does. HUGE SPOILER if you don’t know anything about the story behind Dune, don’t read this!

This is actually the last time Paul Atreides will ever see his homeworld. I haven’t read the other books so I have no knowledge of what happens after the movie. But as far as the previous movie-adaptation goes, this is his last moment on Caladan. Sniff.

Here is the link to their article. They also teased that they would be releasing their promo of the film in tomorrow’s copy! You can bet I’m going to be there waiting for it.

Are you excited? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Let’s see if Muad’Dib can take on the Mouse! (Though I have to say I will always be fan of the original version with Kyle MacLachlan , Patrick Stewart, Dean Stockwell and Lor San Tekka himself….Max Von Sydow!)

    1. Hehe, I am just ready for a better version of the original to blow everyone away. Honestly, it would be a very different world if Dune was released before Star Wars. The Dune universe has the potential to be really big in the Sci-Fi film arena, I am hoping it will blow people away, especially the new generation of film fans who may not even know a thing about Dunes’ origins.
