If you love science-fiction films, then ‘Dune’ must be on your watchlist. Here’s everything you need to know about the exciting movie.
What is Dune About?
In the world of feudal interstellar societies divided and ruled by various noble houses, the Atreides, ruler the ocean planet Caladan and live a peaceful life mostly away from political conflicts. However, their world is turned upside down when the Emperor asks the family patriarch Duke Leto to relocate to the desert planet, Arrakis. Also known as the Dune, the dangerous planet has a rare drug called melange (a.k.a spice) that radically improves human cognitive abilities, extends human life, and helps in space navigation by providing foresight and multidimensional awareness. Its scarcity and immense usefulness make Arrakis a target of countless enemies who wish to keep the invaluable resource for themselves.
Although Leto is aware of the dangers, he still embarks on his perilous mission and takes spice mining operations under his control, accompanied by his concubine Lady Jessica, young son, and heir Paul. However, an unexpected betrayal soon changes everything and leads Paul and Lady Jessica to the natives of Arrakis. They begin to learn psychic abilities from them and are soon joined by the rest of their family. As they re-group, the Atreides family plans to take back Arrakis and take revenge for their betrayal.

Netflix subscribers will have to look for Timothée Chalamet-starrer on other platforms because it is not included in the streaming giant’s current offerings, and its highly unlikely that it will be accessible even in the near future.
