Screen cry may reveal exclusive images of the Dune art book, The art and soul of Dune. The accompanying book provides an overview of the making of Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi film with a glimpse of how the world of the film came to life. Dune premieres in theaters on October 22 and on HBO Max a day earlier on October 21.
Dune is adapted from the science fiction novel of the same name by Frank Herbert. This tells the story of two rival families: the Atreides family, led by Duke Leto (Oscar Isaac), and the Harkonnen family, led by Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgard). When House Atreides obtains stewardship of the planet Arrakis, it puts them in a dangerous position. Arrakis is a desert planet coveted for its spice, a drug that allows humans to navigate Warp space. From there, the struggle for resources begins with betrayal and political corruption.
