Dune — Leaked Teaser Images and Summary

Whilst there is still no official release, Warner Bros have started to showcase the teaser of Dune alongside the viewing with Tenet. It is 1 minute and 37 seconds long. As of now, it is not currently available online. Without further ado, here are the images, which appear to make the infamous Gom Jabbar sequence as a focus point:

The oily and demonic Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård)

The official full trailer is expected to arrive on Wednesday 9th September 2020, according to insider Johnny Sobczak, who we have previously referenced and with whom I shared correspondence. He wrote an extensive article on what was inside the Dune teaser trailer.

Sources have confirmed to Inside The Film Room that the first official “Dune” trailer will be released online on Wednesday, September 9. The will come in the wake of a special, theater-exclusive teaser that is attached to screenings of “Tenet.” — Johnny Sobczak

Summary of Article:

  • It starts with a gold-black version of the Warner Bros and Legendary logo.
  • Gom Jabbar sequence, with Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) putting his hand inside the box at the command of Gauis Helen Mohiam (Charlotte Ramping).
  • That particular room with the sequence is quite vast with beautiful carvings and sunlighting.
  • Dunes of Arrakis (of course).
  • Atreides members arrive off an aircraft, which includes Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac) and Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) with Duncan Idaho (Jason Momoa) wearing a stillsuit.
  • Stilgard (Javier Bardem) removes the mask to speak with someone.
  • Chani (Zendaya) climbing over some rocks with a Fremen group.
  • Dragonfly-looking Ornithopters landing the desert with Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) jumping off.
  • Appearances are made by Wellington Yueh (Chen Chang), Liet-Kynes (Sharon Duncan-Brewster) and also the “Beast” Glossu Rabban Harkonnen (Dave Bautista), who is apparently covered in desert (much like me, literally) .
  • The demonic Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård) ascends from a pool of silver liquid, covering his entire skin.
  • It becomes tenser and tense throughout.
  • It ends with the title and cast reveal with the phrase “FILMED IN IMAX”. Whilst it was not actually shot in IMAX, they are hoping for certification from IMAX themselves. Expect an expanded aspect ratio.
  • It finally finishes with “ONLY IN THEATERS”.
  • The trailer score appears to be a Hans Zimmer origin, combing Blade Runner 2049 (Affiliated Link A) and the 2019 The Lion King (Affiliated link B).
  • Runtime was 1:37 // 1 minute and 37 seconds // 97 seconds.

The hype is real. Let’s hope the trailer release, of which is suppose to be quite long (I think 5 minutes), is actual real this time.
