Having now watched the trailer for Dune, I have to say that “The House Atreides accepts!” might replace “I declare him to be an outlawwwwwwwww!” as my favorite over the top Oscar Isaac line reading. Seriously, Isaac is just one of those actors who can take a slightly silly line and deliver it with just enough gusto to make it memorable.
As for the trailer itself, it appears to have a little bit for everyone. There’s humor. There’s explosions. There’s sand. There’s Zendaya. There’s Timothee Chalamet. There’s Duncan Idaho! I know that a lot of folks here at the Shattered Lens will be excited about that.
Warner Bros. is pouring a lot of their hopes into this film, which will be available both on HBOMax and, hopefully, in theaters. The trailer attempts to keep both Dune readers and Timothee cultists happy and I imagine that it probably succeeded.
We’ll find out in October!
