Just wait another five days, then the first trailer for the remake of Dune should finally appear. In order to keep the fans happy until then, there is currently a large, exclusive cover story in Empire Magazine, in which new details and numerous pictures from the lavish sci-fi flick have been revealed. After a few shots made the rounds (we reported), more photos have now reached the network and are being diligently shared by fans via Twitter. In this message you will find all the new pictures that should get you in the mood for the upcoming trailer.
Dune: These are the new pictures
Left to right: Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), Chani (Zendaya), Stilgar (Javier Bardem) and Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet). All four wear sophisticated distill suits designed to keep the loss of body fluid as low as possible.

The left picture shows Liet Kynes (Sharon Duncan-Brewster, the imperial planetologist on Arrakis. In contrast to the book, Liet is a woman in the remake. In the first adaptation of David Lynch, the role of Max von Sydow was played. The second picture shows Gunsmith Gurney Halleck (Josh Brolin) during a training session on Caladan.
Pictured left: Denis Villeneuve, director, producer and co-writer of Dune. Villeneuve has made a name for itself with widely acclaimed films such as Blade Runner 2049, Arrival and Sicario. At his side: main actor Timothée Chalamet, who likes his talent with films Call Me by Your Name, the drug drama Beautiful boy or the Netflix production The King has impressively demonstrated.
In this scene Paul meets Venerable Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam (Charlotte Rampling) for the first time. She is going to put Paul through a painful test using a mysterious box and a poisoned needle called Gom Jabbar. This scene can also be seen in the trailer.

When exactly is the trailer coming?
The trailer, which is rumored to be around 3 minutes long, will be released on September 9, 2020. According to IGN we can count on the video at 6:00 p.m. local time.
The German theatrical release of Dune is scheduled to take place on December 17, 2020. Dune was planned as a two-parter by director Denis Villeneuve from the start, so the first film will only include part of the famous book by Frank Herbert.
