Finally, the time has come for Screen Junkies and their honest trailer for Dune. The Denis Villeneuve epic is based on the Frank Herbert novel and, as the Honest Trailer points out, was deemed a story that you could not turn into a movie. Well, clearly Villeneuve said “hold my beer,” but he just is going to do it in a very long way. You know … in chapters … like a book.

My favorite part of this entire thing? The joke that the solution to the Dune film problem is to just film half the book and worry about Part Two later.

Honestly, can’t wait for Dune: Part 2 Here We Go Again to see what Denis Villeneuve has in store for us next!
