Dune (Canal+)

In the distant future, Duke Leto Atreides received from the Emperor the fort of the dangerous deserted planet Arrakis. Known as “Dune”, it is the only known source of the most precious ingredient in the universe: “Spice”. Leto and his family – his wife Jessica, and his son Paul – therefore landed in Arrakis to control the capture of Spice. However, between the natives of Fremen, the giant sandworms and the jealousy of the opposite House of Harkonnens, the dangers are many. As the threats become clearer, the fate of the Atreides seems to be more than ever placed on the shoulders of the young and mysterious Paul.

Dunes a huge success and was able to do justice to the richness of Frank Herbert’s original novel. The film has many properties up its sleeve, whether it’s fair and engaging writing, the cast of characters, or the perfect cast (Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac …). The Dune is a truly breathtaking sight, and a sensory experience to be experienced on the largest screen possible. Release May 20 on Canal+ and the myCanal platform.
