I thought this was dropping tomorrow, but as I no longer know what day it is, I was pleasantly surprised to see it today. Director Denis Villeneuve seems to have delivered a film that’s a good balance of trippy and realistic, from the beautifully deadly Gom Jabbar pointed at Paul’s neck to those GIGANTIC sandworms.
And it seems that Villeneuve is willing to play with that balance, with a futuristic cover of Pink Floyd’s “Eclipse” (from The Dark Side of the Moon) as this trailer’s overarching soundtrack. As I love Frank Herbert’s book and the Floyd, I’m eager to see more.
Dune hits theaters in US (?) December 18th, 2020.
