Do you have one of those friends that won't shut the hell up about Dune?. [It's me, I am that friend]. The movie was delayed almost a year thanks to COVID-19, but it appears to be on track for an October release. At the moment, they have released a whole pile of character posters showing off the massive and impressive cast. They aren't very well done character posters, so we'll have to see how this one turns out. Dune is baked into the DNA of so much science fiction and fantasy, so one has to wonder how the filmmakers are going to make this movie not feel redundant. That is one of the many problems that the big-screen adaptation of Ender's Game ran into many years ago; we've all seen this before because everyone has been ripping off Ender's Game and also Dune for decades.
Dune Summary: 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.
