Two members of the The GamesRadar + team attended separate public screenings of Tenet in the UK and neither saw a trailer for Dune - however, we've since heard from people in Canada. who saw the teaser images. Here's what's going on.
** Spoiler warning! A suitable Dune trailer will appear online in weeks to come. You might want to save yourself until then.
The teaser begins with Timothee Chalamet's Paul Atreides standing in a large room, followed by a look at a box Cut to Lady Jessica from Rebecca Ferguson, Paul's mother, who holds a needle around her neckfrom Paul.
Readers of Dune will recognize this as "the box", a nerve induction device that causes the victim to experience severe pain and is used to test self-control. "What 's in the box?" Asks Paul de Chalamet. The response of a veiled Lady Jessica? "Bread. "
Cup: Sands of Dune and Paul standing on a ship that moves like a dragonfly, all interspersed by Chalamet in intense pain from "the box ". There are brief looks at House Atreides, Oscar Isaac's Leto Atreides, Zendaya's Chani, and Javier Bardem's Stilgar, who takes off a mask.
Perhaps the most interesting moment comes when a man, who appears to be Stellan Skarsgård like Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, emerges from a certain mud. This is followed by a glimpse of a few other characters, including Chang Chen's Dr Yueh, Sharon Duncan-Brewster's Dr Liet-Kynes, Dave Bautista's ghostly Glossu Rabban, and Jahis Momoa as swordsman Duncan Idaho. It's a whistling tour of some big names - almost overwhelming.
We then end with another look at Paul, who speculators say is accepted here by the Fremen, the natives of the desert planet Arrakis. In the books, Paul becomes an outcast and ends up with the Fremen. The trailer ends with an elegant and lively Dune logo.
One deion certainly can't do justice to the trailer for Dune, which must be seen on the big screen. Dune was made by Blade Runner 2049 by Denis Villeneuve, who has no doubt does justice to Frank Herbert's epic tale. The full trailer is expected to go live later in September - we'll get back to you once online.
