In the lead-up to Denis Villeneuve’s Dune movie, we continue “Sifting the Spice” on The Dune Podcast, exploring visuals and themes presented in the debut trailer. The hosts, Albert Chessa and Emilio Rodríguez, are joined both by Mark from DuneInfo and myself representing Dune News Net, for in-depth discussion of the anticipated 2021 movie and related topics.
This month’s new episode breaks down every shot from the trailer’s 1:00 to 1:30 minute mark, taking us from Caladan, the peaceful homeworld that House Atreides are leaving behind, to arrival on Arrakis and first appearance of the Harkonnens. We cover Oscar Isaac in his role as Duke Leto, exterior and interior designs of Castle Caladan, Rebecca Ferguson’s portrayal of Lady Jessica, the Sardaukar warriors, and more.
