Podcast – The Dune Podcast: Trailer Analysis 2
‘The Dune Podcast’ returns from hiatus! In this new episode, a trio of Dune enthusiasts—hosts Albert Chessa and Emilio Rodríguez, joined by myself—connect from across three continents to talk about the upcoming Dune movie and an eclectic range of adjacent topics, including other films and musical influences.
While we’re awaiting the arrival of fresh promotional footage, sometime this summer, there are still so many insights to be gleaned from the Dune movie’s debut trailer dropped last September. In this second part of the podcast’s “Sifting the Spice” sub-series, we break down every shot from aforementioned trailer’s 30 to 60 second mark. The in-depth two-hour discussion covers the symbolism of Paul Atreides’ walk along the shore of Caladan, whether the messages of Dune are relevant to today’s audiences, and more.
