Dolby Cinema Releases a New Dune Poster as the Festival Buzz Grows

Dune had its premiere over the weekend at the Venice Film Festival, along with the embargo coming down for the critics who live in the right zip codes. So far, the buzz is very good, but the thing about film festivals is that there is rarely a middle ground for big premieres. It's either going to change filmmaking for the rest of time as we know it, or it's the worst thing that has ever been released. The more nuanced takes should be coming out when the rest of the world gets to see it, but for now, fans seem to have every reason to get hyped. Dolby Cinema released a new poster to go along with that hype, and thank god; these posters aren't as boring as that cast poster that came out last month.

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. 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.
