t’s a gorgeous Summer Friday, after a busy few weeks, and the weekend is beckoning. Does anyone really want to read me drone on about some arcane economic data point that is being misunderstood?
Instead, let me point you to the 2nd trailer that just dropped for Dune. I loved the books as a kid, and was always disappointed none of the movie adaptations ever captured the spirit of Frank Herbert’s writing.
I’ve been burned before, but this one gives me some hope…
Dune | Official Trailer | HBO Max
Feuding royals, a deadly planet and a gifted young man who holds the destiny of everyone in his hands. Born to Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac) and Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), Paul (Timothée Chalamet) inherits stewardship of Arrakis (aka Dune), a dangerous desert wasteland that’s home to vigilant natives (Zendaya as Chani) and melange (aka spice), the most precious resource in the entire universe. Known to extend life and grant its user with superhuman intellect and faster-than-light speed, they set out on a mining expedition to save what’s left from malevolent forces that would do anything to get it. As they face mind-bending realities, raging rebellions, and giant sandworms, the future becomes clear: only those who can conquer fear will survive. #DuneMovie
