Another film to be a box office hit will be Dune and it will prove to tick all the boxes for the fans of the book and sci-fi geeks. This has to be seen in the cinema and it is spectacular in all accounts and has a cast to die for and director and
Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049”) bring this epic film to life as to the adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

The film stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name,” “Little Women”), His portrayal of Paul is set to make him a bigger star in the making and he reminds me of when Leo Di Capro started. He will mature with this role and he is a screen stealer and an uplifting talent.

Rebecca Ferguson (“Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep,” “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”), is a class act and she delivers as Paul Mum. The rest of the cast is just amazing Oscar Isaac (the “Star Wars” franchise) Oscar nominee Josh Brolin (“Milk,” “Avengers: Infinity War”), Stellan Skarsgård (HBO’s “Chernobyl,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron”), Dave Bautista (the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, “Avengers: Endgame”), Stephen McKinley Henderson (“Fences,” “Lady Bird”), Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” HBO’s “Euphoria”), Chang Chen (“Mr. Long,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”), David Dastmalchian (“Blade Runner 2049,” “The Dark Knight”), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Netflix’s “Sex Education”), with Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling Loved when she appeared and that voice of hers. (“45 Years,” “Assassin’s Creed”), with Jason Momoa (“Aquaman,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), and Oscar winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men,” “Skyfall”).

There is all ready oscar buzz happening for 2022′ and it will for sure I say get many nominations as to director, and cast with art design and costumes and special effects.

I’m not one for sci-fi films but it did tick the box’s, and the only thing is I feel may be a touch too long.

There will be another one by 2024 so this is as they say in the film this is only the beginning of what will be a blockbuster for warner bros.

4 stars.
