The Premise: In the far future of humanity, Duke Leto Atreides accepts stewardship of the dangerous desert planet Arrakis, also known as Dune, the only source of the most valuable substance in the universe, “the spice”, a drug which extends human life, provides superhuman levels of thought, and makes faster-than-light travel possible. Though Leto knows the opportunity is an intricate trap set by his enemies, he takes his Bene Gesserit concubine Lady Jessica, young son and heir Paul, and most trusted advisers to Arrakis. Leto takes control of the spice mining operation, which is made perilous by the presence of giant sandworms. A bitter betrayal leads Paul and Jessica to the Fremen, natives of Arrakis who live in the deep desert.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Despite my being a pretty close to lifetime fan of Science Fiction, I’d have to admit that the “Dune” books were not something that I ever followed. Since I wasn’t on point with the franchise I never bothered to see the film that came out in the 1984 and according to what I had read the opinions were mixed on that one overall. That being said a of my friends were fans and rallied behind it in print and on the big screen and I swore that I would find the time to read the books. I didn’t of course and now I really want to because this trailer looks solid. I understand that this will be in theaters in December, but I am still of the mind that I am NOT going to be sitting anywhere seeing anything for quite some time. What do you readers think about this new trailer and the idea that “Dune” is once again being offered up as a Science Fiction property. Chime in down below with your thoughts and I shall see you again soon. As always I remind you to stay safe out there. See you next time.
