15 Reasons Why Dune Could Be The Biggest Movie Of 2021

 The star-studded cast

The cast of Dune is slightly unreal. With Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya as the leading couple, the film is stacked with some of the biggest names of showbiz like Dave Bautista, Oscar Issac, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, and Javier Bardem.

It is reminiscent of Star-Wars

 

Almost all of us were reminded of Star-Wars when we saw the first visuals of the film’s trailer. Dune is an adaptation from Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel of the same name that had elements used in Star Wars a decade later.

The film is directed by Denis Villeneuve

Dune is directed by the same man’s mind behind Arrival and Blade Runner 2049. Denis Villeneuve is well equipped with the knowledge of Sci-Fi and has done wonders in the past.

The film has received an amazing response at the premiere

 

With an 88% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, multiple reviewers have given Dune the title of the next Lord of the Rings.

This is just part one!

Denis Villeneuve had the genuis idea of splitting the story of Dune into two films. That will simply explain the elements with more depth. Part 2 of Dune is set to begin filming in 2022.

The Screenwriters

 

Dune has roped in Academy Award winning screenwriter Eric Roth along with Jon Spaihts who co-wrote the script for Doctor Strange.

A mindblowing plot

Dune‘s storyline is a lot like Game Of Thrones. Except it’s set in space. Two rival houses in an intergalactic empire vie for taking control of a deserted planet called Arrakis.

The characters

Dune has a vast variety of characters that put soul into its epic tale. Young and reluctant desert Messiahs to greedy and sadistic characters, the film will have the audiences loving and hating the same people.

The Sandworms

Just how in Game Of Thrones we had Dragons, Dune has Sandworms that play an essential part in the story. Their visuals in the trailer already had our jaws dropped.

The crazy cinematography

The visuals that we’ve been treated with so far in the trailers are suggestive of a crazy cinematographic experience. Behind the lens in Dune was cinematographer Greig Fraser, who is known for his work in Rogue One and Zero Dark Thirty.

Hans Zimmer is composing the score

If a film has Hans Zimmer working on the score, be prepared for a promising experience. Zimmer has projects like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and The Dark Knight Trilogy under his belt.

Over the edge action

The trailer features some insane visuals of Paul and his allies escaping magnanimous sandstorms which seem promising of great action.

A unique setting

 

It’s a reboot!

The 2021 Dune is actually a reboot of the legendary director David Lynch’s adapted version .Dune way back in 1984.

Has potential for the next big film franchise

If you’re sick of Marvel, DC, and every other half-baked reboot and sequel dominating cinemas, Dune would give you something completely different. Though it hasn’t hit theaters yet, the studio has already given a nod for a sequel.
